AirAsia: Technology Enhances Our Product and Service Delivery

AirAsia X, the long-haul low fare affiliate of Malaysian-based AirAsia Group, has chosen the Samsung’s Galaxy Tab as its gadget of choice for Inflight Entertainment (IFE) and electronic Flight Bag Applications (EFB) for its flights.

The use of the Google-powered tablet in AirAsia X’s flights is a result of a partnership between Tune Box, the new digital media arm of Tune Group, and Samsung Malaysia Electronics.

Tan Sri Dr Tony Fernandes, Tune Group chairman and AirAsia X director, said the Galaxy Tab would be connected to the on-board cabin Wifi to deliver videos, music and interactive games to passengers.

For the EFB solutions, the tablet will be used to bring innovation into the cockpit to help flight crews perform flight management tasks more easily and efficiently.
