Singapore Airline(SIA) has figured out a way to to save fuel cost in Airlines by using iPads and when the lesser cost to airlines means cheaper Airfare. SIA replaced the in flight TVs with iPads that resulted in lesser weight for on the aircraft and lesser power consumption.
“One of the reasons for using iPads for in-flight entertainment is that they are lighter than the traditional inflight entertainment systems and hence saves on fuel,” a spokesperson told AFP
iPads were preloaded with Games, Movies and TV shows, which were given to business class passengers for free and charged 22SGD (Rs. 1000 approx) to economy class passengers.
Fuel is one of the major costs for the claimed by many airlines and money saved is money earned.
