In-flight entertainment and connectivity (IFEC) has come a long way baby, and airlines and travelers are taking serious notice. In fact, IFEC has never been hotter!!
As industry executives from all over the world prepare to descend on Seattle for next week’s Airline Passenger Experience Association (APEX) conference and exhibition – which will no doubt break some records – Eezeer Data Lab has graciously created the following infographics for RWG, which show the evolution of the industry and how airlines finally understand that IFEC has become the cost of doing business.
The third infographic, in particular, speaks volumes about the buzz that IFEC is receiving on social media.
If you’re an IFEC vendor and you’re not actively tweeting, may I suggest you get your butt in gear (meant in the nicest possible way, of course ? You could use Hootsuite or TweetDeck to make sense of Twitter (I recommend setting columns for the words ‘in-flight’, ‘inflight’ and ‘IFEC’). If you’re tweeting from APEX, remember to use the hashtag #APEX11 (and set a column for that hashtag as well) so that you can see and participate in the full conversation. I hope to see you in Seattle but if I don’t, I hope to see you on Twitter!
