flydubai is to extend its collaboration with Lumexis by installing the in-flight entertainment (IFE) provider’s Fiber-To-The-Screen (FTTS) system on 11 Next-Generation Boeing 737-800 aircraft ordered for 2016 and 2017.
The FTTS IFE system has been part of the flydubai experience since 2010, providing passengers with over 1,300 hours of television shows, audio, games and movie titles in Arabic, English, Hindi and Russian.
“flydubai continues to invest in the latest technology to ensure that our passengers are getting the best on-board experience," stated Daniel Kerrison, flydubai’s Vice President Inflight Product. “Being the launch customer for the FTTS system, we were very happy with what it had to offer and we look forward to rolling out the new 4th generation of the system which will enter service with flydubai from May 2016.”
“The Lumexis team is delighted to be continuing our partnership with flydubai,” commented Lou Sharkey, Lumexis President and Chief Operating Officer. “With their flexible service and revolutionary High Definition IFE system, flydubai has consistently set new benchmarks for in-flight customer experience”.
