EL AL Israel Airlines (EL AL) has chosen Lufthansa Systems’ BoardConnect wireless solution as the carrier’s in-flight entertainment (IFE) offering.
EL AL has installed the system on ten Boeing 737 and two Boeing 767 aircraft. Passengers can access via their laptops, tablet PCs or smartphones, a choice of entertainment and information, including on-demand audio and video as well as other content.
“With BoardConnect we will be able to offer our passengers a significantly advanced travel experience,” explained Elyezer Shkedy, CEO of EL AL. “EL AL is one of the first airlines worldwide and the first airline that provides this service from Israel to Europe and vice versa, which offer sophisticated in-flight infotainment not only on wide-body aircraft, but on 737-class aircraft as well.”
“We are proud that EL AL as one of the leading Middle East carriers has selected BoardConnect,” said Stefan Hansen, CEO of Lufthansa Systems. “It is a revolution in IFE, which not only takes in-flight entertainment to a new level but opens up entirely new ways how airlines communicate and interact with their passengers on-board.”
