Bluebox Wow to fly on QantasLink

By Rick Lundstrom

Travelers flying the network of cities and regional destinations across Australia served by QantasLink the regional airline for the Qantas Group, can soon enjoy free wireless in-flight entertainment (W-IFE) on board.

Bluebox Aviation Systems has been selected by QantasLink to deploy its Bluebox Wow W-IFE system on QantasLink’s fleet, initially on A320 aircraft, then expanding to its Fokker F100, 717, and Alliance Airlines’ Embraer E190 aircraft.

The Bluebox Wow system will enhance the regional airline’s service on board, providing entertainment content directly to passenger devices over a captive wireless network.

The IFE content will include movies, TV, audio books and podcasts. Access to the Bluebox Wow system will be integrated with the Qantas Entertainment app to help facilitate a seamless flight-to-flight IFE experience, but will also be available app-free with simple browser access for anyone who does not have the Qantas Entertainment app loaded on their device.

The Bluebox Wow aircraft-powered option will be deployed, which will also have fully-automated PA Pause functionality. This is provided and fitted via an EASA STC, recently awarded for the A320 family aircraft and which will be modified for use on the other aircraft in QantasLink’s fleet.
