SilkAir launches wireless IFE for personal devices

SilkAir’s Economy passengers can stream movies on their own devices, while Business Class passengers will be offered tablets to use while onboard.

Singaporean carrier SilkAir has launched SilkAir Studio – a wireless in-flight entertainment (IFE) system that allows passengers to stream movies and music on their laptops, smartphones and tablets.

The permanent roll-out of the service follows a successful trial that was undertaken by the airline alongside Panasonic Avionics earlier this year.

All passengers carrying a personal electronic device (PED) can access the IFE content, which can be streamed for free, while Business Class passengers will be offered tablets to watch the movies on.

Leslie Thng, Chief Executive of SilkAir, which is the regional wing of Singapore Airlines, said: “Following the introduction of our new Boeing fleet in February, we are excited to introduce this new wireless in-flight entertainment system, SilkAir Studio, to our customers.

“It is a service that will give passengers an innovative new way to enjoy entertainment content in the air, using personal devices of their choice to enjoy the latest and greatest programming from our SilkAir library.”

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.
