Titan gains wi-fi

Stansted-based charter and sub-charter specialist Titan Airways has begun to equip its growing narrow-body fleet with an installed IFE streaming platform provided by Media in Motion (MiM), a UK-based provider of modular and wireless in-flight entertainment (IFE) solutions. 

On each of the A320-200 and Boeing 757-200 aircraft passengers will enjoy full digital content streamed wirelessly from a lightweight on-board server to their smart phones, tablets and other wi-fi enabled personal electronic devices (PEDs).  Five wireless access points (WAPs) per aircraft will ensure steady connection without degradation, no matter how many passengers choose to log in.

“This solution just seemed to tick all the boxes for us.  MiM are already working with another UK airline, so we were able to actually touch and feel the product.  It has been tried and tested, which for us is really important,” said Alastair Willson, Assistant Director of Titan.

“We very much aim to be a premium service,” Willson continued, adding that Titan always has an eye on the future. “All of our A320s are under 10 years of age and the 757s are some of the youngest in the world.  We believe that in a short time this type of digital IFE offering will become a necessity in this highly competitive business."   www.titan-airways.com   media-in-motion.co.uk
