It's an interesting time for the embedded inflight entertainment market, with some airlines preferring to embrace a BYOD-only model for their narrowbody aircraft, whilst others are doubling down on their commitment to offering seatback IFE in addition to wireless streaming. We can place JetBlue Airways firmly in the latter category, as the carrier has selected Thales' AVANT IFE system for its new fleet of 70 Airbus A220-300 aircraft, with deliveries beginning in 2020.
In a statement provided to Runway Girl Network, Thales says the high-performing, Android-based AVANT – which will arrive linefit on JetBlue's A220s – will give customers a vast choice of entertainment and information during their flight, and will be integrated with Viasat's high-speed Internet connectivity.
Every seat on the A220 aircraft will feature the latest 10" HD screens with "picture-in-picture functionality, custom connected applications, audio-and-video-on-demand, and personal device pairing to offer personalization and more entertainment options than ever", notes Thales.
USB and AC power will also be available for every JetBlue customer to keep their devices charged...
