Lufthansa has started offering its passengers on selected medium-haul aircraft a wide range of Hollywood films, TV series, music and digital media, all delivered to their own personal electronic devices via Lufthansa Systems’ BoardConnect platform. BoardConnect uses a wi-fi infrastructure, with the wireless access points developed and installed by Lufthansa Technik.
Before the flight, guests simply download the Lufthansa entertainment app – for free like the whole program itself – or the Microsoft Silverlight browser plug-in for notebooks. While on board, passengers can put together their own personal entertainment program.
The selection of IFE content includes films in up to eight languages, popular television series and 100 CDs – from classical music, rock and pop to audio books. Passengers also have access to a range of Lufthansa radio programs, various daily newspapers and magazines as e-journals, as well as flight information. In the Lufthansa WorldShop, the latest branded products related to travel, lifestyle, sport and electronics can be ordered from the seat for delivery to a passenger’s home.
This service will commence with 20 Airbus A321 aircraft that are equipped with the system. The planned destinations include Tel Aviv, Ashgabat, Baku and the Canary Islands.
