SilkAir trials wireless IFE service

SilkAir is partnering with Panasonic Avionics on the trial to provide wireless in-flight entertainment via the company’s eXW wireless solution.

SilkAir, a regional subsidiary of Singapore Airlines, is trialling wireless in-flight entertainment (IFE), which allows passengers to stream content to laptops, smartphones and tablets.

A wide variety of free content is available during the trial, including movies, television programmes and music. The streaming service is designed to complement the existing overhead entertainment system.

Leslie Thng, Chief Executive of SilkAir, said: “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 in-flight entertainment options on our flights.”

Thng also explained that if the customer feedback is positive and the streaming service performs well technically, it could be rolled out across the fleet during 2014.
