Qantas Airways' low-cost airline Jetstar is ready to offer iPad rentals as in-flight entertainment from April for A$10 per flight.

Australian Business Traveller said the in-flight iPads will come loaded with "movies, music, magazines, books and games" and will be available on Jetstar's A320 flights in Australia and Asia.

Jetstar conducted trial runs with iPads last summer, but due to contract negotiations and pending licensing agreements with Apple, they had to delay the full launch.

Jetstar marketing manager David May told Business Traveller that "if the trial works, we want to put them on every aircraft because they're so much slimmer and lighter than our existing units, and I imagine we will be seeing many other airlines follow suit”.
