The premier IFEC event for the Middle East and North Africa.

With no respite in rising passenger expectations for in-flight entertainment and connectivity (IFEC), airlines are continuing to invest in their passenger experience offerings. Middle Eastern carriers are widely recognised as global leaders in the quality, diversity and efficiency of their in-flight experience.

Since the inaugural event in 2013, Inflight Middle East has firmly established itself as the premier IFEC event in the gulf region. In 2018, the show expanded to encompass carriers based in North Africa, too. Taking place as an official event of Aircraft Interiors Middle East (AIME), the Inflight Pavilion, Workshop and Awards offers a regional forum dedicated to IFEC and cabin technology.

Showcasing innovation

The Inflight Pavilion provides an area of the exhibition floor reserved exclusively for the latest innovations in passenger experience. Leading in-flight entertainment and connectivity manufacturers and suppliers are invited to showcase their product and service solutions to a highly targeted audience of key decision-makers from the vibrant Middle East and North Africa region.
