In-flight entertainment & connectivity (IFEC) has become a crucial part of business strategies of airlines companies. Major airlines across the globe are inclined towards offering enhanced in-flight entertainment and connectivity services to improve passenger experience and gain competitive edge.

In-flight entertainment and connectivity is a means of enhancing a passenger’s travelling experience and potentially enables an airline to distinguish itself from its competitors in an increasingly competitive landscape.
