SpiceJet on Monday announced that it has launched a revamped complimentary in-flight entertainment (IFE) system called ‘SpiceScreen’.
The system can be accessed by passengers on any of their personal hand-held devices like mobiles or laptops.
In the tweet, the airline said, “Take a flight of fantasy with SpiceScreen – SpiceJet’s in-flight entertainment system! Immerse yourself in a world of Bollywood and regional blockbuster movies, TV shows, cartoons and much more, delivered directly to your personal device, with SpiceScreen!“
The airline also posted the instructions to use the service:
“An enhanced version of the airline’s existing in-flight entertainment, SpiceScreen…enables seamless delivery of content on to the personal devices of the passengers through the Wi-Fi network,” it said.
Unlike traditional in-flight entertainment systems, flyers can access SpiceScreen on any of their handheld devices, a smartphone, tablet or laptop, by simply connecting to the on-board network with a few simple steps.
We are extremely excited to bring our redesigned in-flight entertainment system to market, bringing the latest and greatest blockbuster content to our passengers. However, what makes me especially happy and proud is that most of the technology used in SpiceScreen was developed by Made in India, our team together with a local startup.Ajay Singh, Chairman and CEO of SpiceJet.Advertisement
The airline said SpiceScreen will also bring compelling regional content to users in eight major languages, Tamil, Bengali, Telugu, Malayalam, Marathi, Kannada, Punjabi and Gujarati.
Planned international passenger flights have been suspended in India since March 23 due to the novel coronavirus pandemic.
However, India has formed bilateral bubbles with countries like the US, UK, France and Germany, in which airlines from both countries are allowed to operate international flights under certain restrictions.
