Virgin Australia to offer free Samsung Galaxy tablets for in-flight entertainment on business class

Virgin Australia recently announced it will start rolling out Samsung Galaxy 10.1 tablets on majority of its aircrafts for in-flight entertainment starting August this year. The airline’s move comes ahead of Qantas Airways rollout of its Apple iPads on some of its older Boeing 767 aircrafts.

The airline in a statement said that it had already carried out the successful trail of the Samsung tablet devices for over a week in April this year. The trail of Android-powered tablets were held in the business class cabin of selected Embraer E190 and Boeing 737 flights.

After the trial completed successfully, Virgin Australia has now started rolling out Samsung Galaxy tablets on majority of its domestic as well as short-haul international routes, including trans-Tasman flights.

A Virgin Australia spokesman said that passengers taking business class flights will be offered the tablets for in-flight entertainment purpose free of charge. Apart from this, the tablets will also be offered free of charge to passengers boarding flights over three hours. This would however be subject to availability.
