Qatar Airways has announced its A350 fleet will soon offer passengers fully touchless in-flight entertainment technology.
The Zero-Touch technology is being introduced in partnership with the Thales AVANT IFE system and will allow passengers to pair their personal electronic devices with their seat-back IFE screen, enabling them to use the devices to access the entertainment options offered through the airline’s Oryx One in-flight entertainment system.
The Oryx One system offers passengers up to 4,000 blockbuster movies, TV box sets, music, games and more.
Qatar Airways says it will be the first global airline to offer this type of service. In another first for the industry, the carrier has revealed it is also set to become the first airline in Europe, the Middle East and North Africa to offer Business and Economy passengers the option to pair their personal Bluetooth headphones with the onboard seatback IFE system in all cabins onboard its Boeing 787-9 aircraft.
