The flying kangaroo said in a statement that from tomorrow, six of its Airbus A380 super-jumbos, travelling between Sydney and Los Angeles, as well as Melbourne and Los Angeles, will feature in-flight internet access.

The trial will run for eight weeks and had been slated to get underway in February at the announcement of the program.

As part of the eight-week trial, the internet service will only be available to passengers in a first or business class seat.

Qantas executive manager, Customer Experience, Alison Webster, said that the in-flight internet service will work similarly to a terrestrial Wi-Fi hotspot and support personal entertainment devices including laptops, iPhones, iPads and BlackBerrys.

The service will be provided by OnAir using Inmarsat's SwiftBroadband satellite services.
