The aviation industry has yet another product designed to restore passenger confidence in air travel during COVID-19 and in a post-pandemic world.
Thales InFlyt Experience has unveiled ‘Ready to Fly’, a range of cabin innovations designed to reduce touchpoints and mitigate passenger congestion so that passengers can have a safe flying experience. The initiative is focused on expediting the industry’s digital transformation through passenger-centric solutions, integrated products and services that increase crew efficiency.
“Most important to Thales is that we are here to support our airline customers and work with them to tackle their toughest challenges during these unprecedented times,” said Neil James, VP of sales at Thales InFlyt Experience.
The range of touchless solutions allows passengers to control IFE systems through their personal electronic devices such as smartphones or tablets, accessing features such as digital versions of onboard paper menus, magazines and safety and health information, as well as entertainment options.
The Travel Assistant feature reduces physical interactions with the crew while maximizing cabin service, as it will enable passengers to request and receive automated information on the seatback monitor. The crew will also have the ability to gather information, receive notifications and control the cabin from their own secure personal phone or tablet.
Thales is working with its network of partners to develop cabin automation solutions that decrease congestion, facilitate aircraft disembarking, and manage passenger flow by using synthetic data.
