Turkish Airlines to upgrade IFE on single-aisle aircraft


Turkish Airlines to upgrade IFE on single-aisle aircraft

The Thales TopSeries AVANT in-flight entertainment system is based on the Android operating system.

Turkish Airlines has announced that it will adopt the Thales TopSeries AVANT in-flight entertainment (IFE) system on 25 of its A321s and 20 B737s.

The scalable design of the system, which is based on the Android operating system, means the airline will be able to differentiate its offer between classes. This means Economy passengers will have access to a single touch-screen, while Business passengers will be offered interactive second-screen technology.

Turkish Airlines CEO, Dr Temel Kotil, said: “We are aware that the in-flight services are the significant components for the satisfaction of our passengers and we continue to raise the bar. We are continuing to work on meeting the expectations of our passengers by constantly innovating to delight and surprise our guests as in this innovation. And with this new in-flight entertainment system we are convinced that we will bring an added value to the comfort of our passengers.”

Commenting on the agreement, Thales’ CEO of In-Flight Entertainment and Connectivity (IFEC), Dominique Giannoni, added: “Turkish Airlines’ focus on providing passengers with an exceptional in-flight experience is reflected in both its efforts to build a solid IFE platform within single-aisle aircraft whilst still providing a ‘wow-factor’ to the passenger experience.”

Future Travel Experience Up in the airIf you are committed to enhancing the onboard passenger experience, make sure you attend the FTE Up in the Air conference, which will take place at our flagship event, FTE Global 2014, in Las Vegas from 24-26 September 2014. The theme of the event is 'Redefining the end-to-end passenger experience'.

The Up in the Air conference will focus on all things in-flight – including IFE&C, passenger and crew connectivity, cabin design, passenger comfort, personalisation and ancillary revenue generation – and we look forward to playing an important role in shaking up the passenger experience in the air, which has evolved very little in the last 20 years, unlike on the ground.
