New blog post: Scoot replace in-flight entertainment with iPad to save fuel

I’m so proud of Singapore Airlines’ budget carrier, Scoot. In a bid to save on fuel, the carrier decided to use iPad instead of the traditional in-flight entertainment system. You might be wondering, how much fuel can that save? Well, according to Scoot, removing the old chunky in-flight entertainment system allow them to increase the seat capacity by 40 percent and lose 7 percent weight. Apparently, the in-flight entertainment system weights more than 2 tons. Only Business class passengers were given the iPads, which is preloaded with more than 50GB of movies, TV shows and Games. Economy class passengers can rent the iPad at S$22. This is a very smart move. After all, fuel is one of the biggest cost factor for an airline. Don’t be surprised if you see more airline following their footsteps.
