AIX2024: Thales introduce web-based IFE

photo_camera System has been designed to give airlines flexibility over content

Thales have used the first morning of the Hamburg show to launch a web-based IFE system that has the ability to stream content directly from passenger’s phones.

The product, known as FlytEDGE,  features ‘edge caching’. Depending on how the airline has set it up, passengers can instantly stream entertainment using their personal video subscriptions and continue watching shows from the ground to the air and across flights.

Native content on the system can be updated by the airline on demand, as can backgrounds, seasonal themes, etc.

FlytEDGE is certified for use and is currently on trial with one US carrier. We understand that fruitful discussions with another airline at AIX this morning (May 28) could see it fly with another airline soon.

We’re delighted to bring FlytEDGE’s state-of-the-art capabilities to our airline customers to create memorable and fully-tailored passenger interactions.” said Yannick Assouad, Executive Vice-President Avionics, Thales.
