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.
