Iceland Express has become the latest carrier to offer passengers iPads, joining a small but rapidly growing club turning to Apple for their inflight entertainment.
The budget airline, which flies from Reykjavik to destinations including London, New York, Berlin and Copenhagen, will introduce the devices first on transatlantic flights, before rolling it out to the rest of the fleet over the next few months.
Passengers will have to pay $13 to use the devices, which can be used to watch movies and television shows, listen to music, read magazines and play games.
