WestJet first announced it was set to launch an iOS-compatible inflight entertainment system 17 months ago, powered by Panasonic. Along with onboard Wi-Fi, customers will be able to access free and paid content such as live TV, movies and more. The airline also announced in 2014 it would be integrating USB/110 volt power outlets into seats, to provide power for customers.
