On first blush, the new FlightPath application for Panasonic Avionics’ in-flight entertainment systems looks simply like a cool flash interface. But look a little deeper and you’ll see that it is an entirely different approach to the whole passenger experience.
Providing an event-driven, content-rich seatback environment, FlightPath was quietly shown to airlines at last year’s WAEA conference and exhibition. Since that time, everything has “started to snowball in terms of capabilities”, says Panasonic Avionics director of corporate sales and marketing Neil James. Airlines are lining up for FlightPath, and some are keen to totally “customize their own cities” to drive business to their own brand partners.
RWG is pleased to show FlightPath to the traveling public for the very first time. Is IFE still relevant in a connected world? Oh Yeah!
