Qantas has introduced inflight meditation and expanded its entertainment offering to give customers more ways to relax inflight.
The airline’s first meditation video (watch below) series has been specially designed to bring a sense of calm and help customers unwind in the air. The 10-minute guided meditation is set to aerial footage of some of the most beautiful landscapes around Australia. Customers can choose from five different scenes including Australian deserts, bushlands, coasts, forests and locations at twilight as they listen to the meditation.
Qantas has also signed up with Apple Music and Audible, and extended its existing partner content with Stan to give customers free access to more TV programs, movies, songs and digital audiobooks both inflight and on the ground.
While Apple Music, Audible and Stan are all paid subscription services, they will offer free access to Qantas customers on and off the aircraft.
Customers travelling across the entire Qantas network can download content before their flight via the Qantas App or stream it inflight on selected domestic Wi-Fi aircraft. The offers include:
- Up to four months free subscription to Apple Music giving Qantas customers access to 45 million songs and Apple Music’s exclusive Beats 1 radio station, featuring shows by music artists including Elton John and Pharrell Williams.
- One free audiobook per month for the first three months from the full Audible.com.au library of downloadable audiobooks for new Audible customers, featuring new content including The Barefoot Investor written and narrated by Scott Pape and Kick Ass with Mel Robbins written and narrated by motivational speaker, Mel Robbins.
- Stan, which is currently available on Qantas Wi-Fi enabled aircraft, will now offer three months of unlimited access to TV shows and movies to new Stan customers on all Qantas flights.
Qantas offers around 2,000 hours of inflight entertainment content each month including premiere movies, TV box sets, comedy shows, documentaries, music, games, and kids TV channels. In addition to the 25,000 seat-back in-flight entertainment screens in our fleet, more than 6,000 passengers daily stream shows on the Qantas Entertainment app on their own mobile devices.
Qantas is rolling out Wi-Fi across its domestic fleet of A330s and B737s. Under a partnership with global broadband services provider ViaSat that taps into the nbn™ network, the service features speeds up to 10 times faster than conventional on-board Wi-Fi, giving customers the ability to stream movies, TV shows, the latest news bulletins and sport on domestic flights via the internet.
The meditation video series is available now to view on YouTube and an immersive virtual reality (VR) version can be downloaded before travelling via the Qantas VR App. The video series will be available from June on Qantas inflight entertainment.
