Papua New Guinea national carrier, Air Niugini, will equip as of Spring 2013 its long-haul fleet of B767s with The IMS Company’s RAVE “seat-centric” in-flight entertainment (IFE) system.
Supporting the installation process and FAA certification of the RAVE IFE system will be aircraft maintenance and engineering services provider, Icelandair Technical Services.
“The RAVE system provides us a high level of technology combined with lower weight and more customer convenience,” remarked the CEO of Air Niugini, Wasantha Kumarasiri. “Our existing relationship with Icelandair Technical Services made this program possible and we look forward to introducing this new product to our customers.”
Air Niugini cited several reasons why they chose RAVE including its design, reliability, lower weight and lower cost of ownership. Air Niugini has become the eighth airline to choose the RAVE standard Graphical User Interface (GUI).
“The GUI provides a diverse passenger base with a familiar and intuitive way to interact with RAVE,” explained VP of Sales and Marketing for IMS, Harry Gray.
“Our standard approach allows us to offer a growing list of features to our current and future customers at a fraction of the cost and in less time than traditional IFE systems,” added IMS CTO, Steve Hawkins.
