Lufthansa Systems has partnered with the National Research Council of Canada (NRC) with the aim of further developing its BoardConnect in-flight entertainment solution.
The partnership means BoardConnect will become part of an NRC cabin simulator due to feature at the latter’s new research facility. Currently under construction, the building is being designed to simulate the entire airport and aircraft environment to assist airlines, aircraft manufacturers and other aviation industry suppliers to investigate and improve the passenger experience.
“We plan to co-operate closely with the National Research Council in the future in terms of features and functionalities,” says Norbert Müller, SVP BoardConnect. “Like ourselves, NRC has many highly capable software developers. This partnership will enable us to benefit from each other’s expertise and experience and has the potential to greatly enhance the creative development of our BoardConnect platform in the future.”
The new research centre is based in Ottawa, Canada, and is due to open its doors during the summer of 2016. BoardConnect is expected to be installed at the facility by the end of this year.
