AeroMod International and SITAONAIR have partnered to install SITAONAIR wireless inflight entertainment (IFE) services on Philippine Airlines, the companies said.
The rapid installation program will see AeroMod International deploy a consistent cabin experience across Philippine Airlines fleet.
The company commenced installation of the SITAONAIR wireless IFE system on Philippine Airlines´ Airbus A321 fleet in July. Under the program, Philippine Airlines will have one wireless IFE-installed aircraft returned to service every day.
Market analysis by AeroMod reveals that only 13 percent of non-US airlines have wireless IFE fully deployed. Despite this, a recent SITA survey of passengers worldwide showed IFE is now more commonly consumed via Wi-Fi on a personal device, rather than on the aircraft´s seat-back screen. Two-thirds of passengers said they would choose to access it via their own devices if wireless IFE was available.
