Jet Airways expands Jetscreen in-flight entertainment via WiFi to 14 737s

India’s largest private airline, Jet Airways, has expanded its recently introduced JetScreen domestic in-flight entertainment service via Wi-Fi streaming to 14 Boeing 737s, up from the five, when the service was introduced last month.

Passengers aboard these 14 aircraft can stream video and audio content directly on their personal electronic devices (PEDs) such as mobile phones, tablets and laptops.

Passengers need to install the ‘Airtime Player’ app, available on all major App stores, on their Wi-Fi enabled PEDs. On-board passengers must switch their devices to ‘Airplane Mode’, enable just the Wi-Fi, and select ‘JetScreen’ as their wireless network of choice. Once connected, launching the web browser enables access to the Inflight Entertainment Portal.

JetScreen also offers a 3D flight tracker for us AvGeeks.
