FlytLive consists of a host of fast and secure broadband connectivity, connected services, and live content management services. Finally, FlytCare is a maintenance and repair service leveraged by Thales’s global support network.By providing airlines with a connectivity-enabled Android platform, underpinned by application development services, Thales aims to enhance business to consumer marketing, ancillary revenue generation, flight monitoring, data analytics and reporting to manage and utilise information and live content as part of one fully integrated and optimised solution.“We believe Thales InFlyt Experience is going to revolutionise passenger air travel and the way airlines see IFE providers. Our state-of-the-art AVANT Android system and associated FlytLive connectivity solutions enable an unrivalled passenger experience whilst providing airlines with exceptional value for money and return on investment,” commented Dominique Giannoni, VP Thales and CEO of Thales InFlyt Experience. “Thales’s heritage as a leader in civil aerospace has enabled us to build one of the most successful in-flight entertainment companies in the world and now with the integration of LiveTV’s activities completing our offer, we are ready to reach new heights for the benefit of our airline customers.”
