Air Nigeria is Taking the iPad 3 to 35,000-Feet

At this point it’s pretty clear that airlines love the iPad. We’ve seen a couple different carriers here and there load them up, as it’s a quick and easy way to install plenty of in-flight entertainment without sending an airplane into the hangar for a refreshment and refurbishment. Now Air Nigeria is doing the same, and they seem to be one the first to utilize the iPad 3—we mean the new iPad.
IFE Services is the company behind the tablet distribution, as they’ve been selected to partner with Air Nigeria as the new in-flight entertainment provider. Right now it sounds like the touch screen fun is coming to just the airline’s Airbus A330 fleet, and passengers situated up in business class will be the ones handling the brand new Apple drives.
The newest iPads will be handed off, and flyers will be welcome to enjoy plenty of feature films—both from Hollywood and Nigeria—as well as the usual TV shows. Everything will be free of charge, but of course you kind of paid for your access by shelling out the extra cash for business class airfare in the first place.
Back in the rear of the plane passengers won’t be so lucky, as it sounds like they’ll all be stuck watching the same movie—bummer.
