Lumexis has announced that flydubai will continue to use the former’s Fiber-To-The-Screen (FTTS) inflight entertainment system for its follow-on order of 11 Boeing 737-800s scheduled for delivery during 2016 and 2017.
“flydubai continues to invest in the latest technology to ensure that our passengers are getting the best onboard experience," declared 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 FTTS system has been used by flydubai since 2010, providing passengers with over 1,300 hours of television shows, audio, games and movie titles in Arabic, English, Hindi and Russian.
“The Lumexis team is delighted to be continuing our partnership with flydubai,” noted Lou Sharkey, president and chief operating officer of Lumexis. “With its flexible service and revolutionary High Definition IFE system, flydubai has consistently set new benchmarks for inflight customer experience.”
