Turkish Airlines Debuts Wireless In-Flight Entertainment System

Turkish Airlines has introduced the domestic production of its "Wireless In-Flight Entertainment System." The flag carrier of Turkey has become the first to use this wireless in-flight entertainment system, which was entirely developed by Turkish engineers in partnership with Turkish Technic Inc. and Havelsan.

Passengers will be able to connect their personal electronic devices to the in-flight entertainment system, which will initially be available on the airline's 44 narrow-body aircraft that do not have seatback screens. Putting the system into practice will help increase the proportion of Turkish Airlines’ fleet with in-flight entertainment systems to 95 percent.

Passengers who would like to use the “Wireless In-flight Entertainment System” must download the application named "Wi-Fi Entertainment" on their smartphones before boarding their flight. Additionally, passengers will also be able to use the system on their laptops with a Google Chrome browser.
