OnAir Play brings films, TV, live news, music, games, magazines and newspaper content to passengers.

Philippine Airlines is to be the launch customer of OnAir Play – OnAir’s wirelessly-delivered IFE product – on all its new international routes.

The airline becomes the first carrier in Asia-Pacific to provide passengers with fully-integrated connectivity and inflight entertainment.

OnAir Play combines multimedia inflight entertainment with Internet OnAir.

Passengers can stream or download the on-demand content they choose to their own personal electronic devices.

And because the Wireless IFE will be fully integrated with the plane’s connectivity, time-critical information, such as live news and sports highlights, can be constantly updated throughout the flight via Inmarsat’s SwiftBroadband service (where fitted).

Philippine Airlines’ passengers will be able to choose from a wide selection of movies catering to all type of passengers.

Magazines available on the e-reader feature of OnAir Play include Bon Appétit, Condé Nast Traveller, Vanity Fair, and National Geographic. The next stage is to include the digital version of the duty-free catalogue.

OnAir says OnAir Play is a low-cost, flexible upgrade from its existing connectivity products.

Airlines can also brand OnAir products to ensure brand consistency across the complete passenger experience.

Ramon Ang, President of Philippine Airlines, said: “We are expanding our long-haul network rapidly, with plans to open routes to Australia, the US and beyond.

“We are expanding our fleet and we want to offer the latest cabin entertainment options available. There is no doubt that merging entertainment with connectivity provides a fun way of spending time during the flight. Our passengers can now access the content they want, when they want it, on the device of their choice.”

Ian Dawkins, CEO of OnAir, said: “OnAir Play is the obvious choice for the airline. It is the right product for today’s passengers who increasingly want the choice of accessing entertainment content on their own personal devices.”

OnAir Play will be retro fitted to Philippine Airlines’ Airbus A330s, which already have Mobile OnAir and Internet OnAir, OnAir’s full GSM and Wi-Fi connectivity package.
