Android-Powered Airlines

Norwegian Launches an Android-Powered in-Flight Entertainment System

— July 6, 2013 — Tech
Norwegian airlines has been working with Panasonic Avionics Corporation for months now to create an android-powered passenger system. Passengers will now be able to choose from a variety of pre-loaded Android apps as their in-flight entertainment systems. These apps will include movies, music, games and more. This new implementation is expected to facilitate customers faster and easier, and provide a better entertainment experience.

Because Android is one of the most predominant operating systems for mobile devices, Norwegian attempts to bring that content to the seat screens on flights. This is considered a future-forward and edgy move. Norwegian airlines will be the first ever to experiment with this concept. Internet might not always be available mid flight, but this new option will permit better resolution movies.
Trend Themes
1. Android-powered Passenger Systems - Norwegian's implementation of an android-powered passenger system opens up opportunities for other airlines to offer a more personalized and interactive in-flight entertainment experience.
2. Pre-loaded Android Apps for In-flight Entertainment - The use of pre-loaded Android apps for in-flight entertainment provides an opportunity for app developers to expand their reach and offer tailored content to airline passengers.
3. Offline Entertainment Options on Flights - The availability of offline entertainment options on flights presents an opportunity for entertainment providers to offer high-resolution movies and other media, enhancing the overall in-flight experience.
Industry Implications
1. Airlines - Airlines can explore the adoption of android-powered passenger systems to differentiate their in-flight entertainment offerings and provide a more engaging experience for travelers.
2. Mobile App Development - Mobile app developers can create customized and pre-loaded Android apps for airlines to enhance their in-flight entertainment systems and reach a broader audience.
3. Entertainment - Entertainment providers can collaborate with airlines to offer exclusive offline content for in-flight entertainment, leveraging the popularity of Android devices among travelers.
