During this trial, customers will be able to stream a wide variety of multimedia content such as movies, TV programmes and music directly onto their personal devices while onboard their flight.
Customers can access this inflight entertainment content through their laptops, Apple iPhone, iPad, iPod or Android tablets and smartphones.
Access to the inflight content, which will complement SilkAir’s existing overhead entertainment system, will be complimentary for customers.
“SilkAir has always explored opportunities to improve our service offerings and ensure our customers have an enjoyable travel experience. This initiative was introduced based on feedback from customers who wanted access to more inflight entertainment options on our flights. Upon successful trial, we look forward to introducing this system across our aircraft fleet by next year, providing customers with the complete SilkAir experience,” said Chief Executive, Mr. Leslie Thng.
SilkAir has partnered Panasonic Avionics Corporation for this trial, using the company’s eXW Wireless IFE solution.
In addition to customers’ feedback, SilkAir will be monitoring technical performance of the wireless streaming during this pilot trial.
