HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

Hawaiian Airlines will become the only U.S. carrier to offer the Apple iPad mini on all of its wide-body Boeing 767-300 aircraft.

The airline has contracted Bluebox Avionics, a global provider of portable In-flight Entertainment (IFE) solutions to airline carriers, to deploy 1,500 iPad minis on 14 B767 aircraft serving 14 routes between Hawaii and the U.S. Mainland, Asia and South Pacific.

The iPad minis will replace all current portable entertainment systems on all of Hawaiian Airlines‟ B767 routes beginning on September 1.

"Hawaiian Airlines‟ signature on-board hospitality is already very popular with travelers, but we wanted to go even further to ensure our customers‟ travel experience is more enjoyable," said Blaine Miyasato, Hawaiian Airlines vice president of product development. "With the help of Bluebox Avionics, we‟re building on our acclaimed inflight service by incorporating the latest in popular consumer tech products to enhance our in-flight entertainment options."

The iPad minis will be complimentary in Business Class on all B767 routes and available for rent in Economy Class for $15 if reserved at departure gate prior to boarding ($17 if purchased in-flight), subject to availability, on North America, Brisbane, and Pago Pago routes.

Hawaiian Airlines travelers can watch the latest Hollywood releases, television shows, and a variety of exciting interactive games on the iPad mini.

Hawaiian Airlines currently operates the wide-body, twin-aisle Boeing 767-300 aircraft between Honolulu and Oakland, San Jose, Sacramento, Seattle, Phoenix in the U.S.; Fukuoka and Sendai, Japan; Seoul, South Korea; Brisbane, Australia; Papeete, Tahiti; and Pago Pago, American Samoa. In addition, Hawaiian Airlines B767 routes also include service between Kahului, Maui and San Jose, Oakland and Seattle.
