In-flight television screens are to be axed from long-haul flights in and out of the UK with carriers streaming content to passengers' mobile phones and tablets instead, it has emerged.
WestJet, a low-cost airline which will launch transatlantic flights out of London's Gatwick Airport next year, will be among the first to remove entertainment systems from the back of airline seats for long-haul flights.
The move comes in favour of allowing passengers to stream content directly to their own devices, with a superfast wireless internet connection set to be provided to each plane by satellites.
