Qantas will refresh 16 of its Boeing 767 aircraft with new interiors and individual in-flight entertainment as part of a wider investment in its domestic customer experience.

"Customers travelling on Qantas's 767 fleet will now enjoy new cabin interiors and in-flight entertainment [IFE] streamed directly to iPads in every seat," Lyell Strambi, the carrier's domestic chief executive, said in a statement.

"Following the successful trial of our QStreaming service this year, we will partner with Panasonic to provide over 200h of IFE content on demand via iPads to every passenger in Business and Economy travelling on our 767 fleet," he added.

The aircraft's business class seats will be upholstered with leather, while its economy cabin will get a new look and feel. Other enhancements include new carpet, curtains, dividers and lighting.

The first of 16 aircraft to be refreshed will enter into service in October.

In addition to new aircraft deliveries (one Airbus A330 and two 737-800s this year), the 767 makeover forms part of a wider strategic investment across the domestic customer experience including enhancements to ground operations and further upgrades to other domestic aircraft over the next few years, says the carrier.
