June 8, 2015 – London Stansted-based charter and sub-charter specialist Titan Airways has begun to equip a selection of its narrow-body fleet with an installed IFE streaming platform provided by Media inMotion (MiM), a UK-based provider of modular and wireless IFE.
On each of the A320-200 and B757-200 aircraft to be equipped with the MiM platform, passengers will enjoy digital content (ranging from Hollywood films and popular network series to newspapers, magazines and music) streamed wirelessly from a lightweight onboard server to their smart phones, tablets and other wi-fi enabled personal electronic devices. Five wireless access points (WAPs) per aircraft will ensure steady connection without degradation of experience, no matter how many passengers choose to log on.
Martin Cunnison, CEO of Media inMotion, says that for now, the platform’s graphical user interface (GUI) has been configured to reflect Titan’s own branding; but that can be easily changed based on a charter customer’s own requirements.
“The partnership allows us to highly customize the passenger experience to suit the varied missions the aircraft are used for. At the touch of a button, crew can change the entire user interface and content line up to match the audience – whether the aircraft is flying in the easyJet or Jet2 colors or under private charter for Manchester United or Audi,” he explained.
