Qatar Airways becomes the first airline in the world to offer passengers 100% Zero-Touch technology for its in-flight entertainment system across the A350 fleet, as part of the airline’s latest COVID-19 security measures.
This technology, introduced in partnership with Thales AVANT’s IFE system, will allow A350 passengers to link their personal electronic devices (PEDs) to their seat’s IFE display by connecting to Wi-Fi and simply scanning a QR code displayed on the screen. They can then use their PEDs to navigate and enjoy more than 4,000 options offered through the airline’s in-flight entertainment system, limiting the frequency of contact with the in-flight surface and providing greater peace of mind throughout the journey.
Qatar Airways will also become the first airline in Europe and the Middle East and North Africa region to offer Business and Economy passengers the option to pair their personal Bluetooth headsets with the seatback IFE system in all cabins across the Boeing 787-9 fleet.
“The introduction of state-of-the-art Zero-Touch technology and the ability for passengers to use their personal Bluetooth headsets on board is an important step in taking our already rigorous and stringent COVID-19 precautions to another level, limiting superficial passenger contact and preventing any potential spread of infection on board,” said Qatar Airways Group Chief Executive Officer Akbar Al Baker.
