With the launch of Air Canada’s Rouge — a new leisure airline — passengers will be able to stream stored movies, TV shows and other entertainment content to their personal devices using Panasonic (PCRFY) Avionics’ wireless in-flight entertainment solution eXW.
Passengers will be able to access services through a personalized portal on their own Wi-Fi-enabled laptop, tablet, smartphone or other device. This is a big deal since the aircraft used for rouge are not equipped with seat-back entertainment players.
Don’t have a device? You can rent an Apple (AAPL) iPad on board for $10.
