Philippine Airlines Adds Wireless IFE to More Aircraft

Travel News Asia Videos Podcasts Latest Travel News Asia Thursday, 18 September 2014

Only four months after entering service on its A330s, Philippine Airlines will install wireless IFE on a further five A330s, as well as six A340s.

The A330s already have connectivity, and it will now also be deployed on the A340s.

All the airlines long-range aircraft will therefore be equipped with OnAirs full IFEC package of mobile phone and Wi-Fi services, and wireless IFE.

PAL President & Chief Operating Officer Ramon S. Ang said, Through PALs iNAiR offerings, passengers can now select from an array of movies, television programs and music thus enabling them to customize their inflight entertainment. Passengers responses to being able to use their own phones, tablets and laptops for both IFE and connectivity has been overwhelmingly positive. Adding OnAir Play to more aircraft was an easy decision. While we are very much aware that we are breaking new ground by not having traditional embedded IFE on the brand new A330s, there is no question that wireless IFE is working for our passengers.

The combination of Mobile OnAir, Internet OnAir and OnAir Play on board PALs A330-300 fleet provides passengers with the full range of inflight choices. The number of devices passengers carry is increasing, the expectation of ubiquitous connectivity is rising and the desire for autonomy over content consumption is growing. Passengers can now use their own devices to connect to the Internet, check email, text messages and voicemail, update social media, and choose from a wide selection of on-demand content.

OnAir Play, introduced onboard PAL in May this year, is a low-cost, flexible upgrade from OnAirs connectivity products.

PALs B777-300ER aircraft are also equipped with Mobile OnAir and Internet OnAir.

The B777-300s and new A330-300s are deployed on the flag carriers international route network.
