China Airlines announced it is introducing a new wireless inflight entertainment system on its Boeing 737 aircraft, becoming the first Taiwan-based airline to introduce inflight wireless streaming services.

According to China Airlines, it is currently running trials with its new Fantasy Sky Wireless Entertainment System on its Boeing 737-800 fleet, which will be officially launched in 2022.

Using their own personal devices, passengers will be able to select a wide range of multimedia streaming services in-flight. Once logged in, passengers will be able to access free video-on-demand services and browse in-flight publications such as the Dynasty magazine and Sky Boutique Duty-Free Shopping. Passengers will also be able to use the interactive interface to check flight information and real-time status.

“Staying at pace with the latest technological advances, China Airlines continues to upgrade its cabin offerings and to provide travelers with a rich selection of quality services. The latest introduction of popular streaming services caters to the everyday habits of travelers and their demand for AVOD services,” China Airlines said in a statement.

The new wireless inflight entertainment also aims to reduce contact inside the cabin as part of the airline's epidemic-prevention efforts.
