As part of its new SKYFE in-flight entertainment solution developed by Havelsan and Turkish Technic for Turkish Airlines’ narrowbody fleet, the carrier will be deploying Kontron’s ACE flight server and Cab-n-Connect wireless access point.
These hardware products, which are qualified to D0-160G and optimised for a full range of flight information services, will provide the backbone of the cabin Wi-Fi network in the new SKYFE system.
“The selection of SKYFE by Turkish Airlines is a major success for the Turkish Technic, Havelsan and Kontron team,” commented Helina Aykurt, avionics customer programme manager at Kontron. “With Kontron’s global reach, we have been able to add value to the deployment process by working closely with the SKYFE team to support their system integration, installation design, airworthiness approvals and flight test programme.”
There are currently more than 3500 commercial aircraft and business jets operating worldwide with Kontron equipment on board.
