Connecting with Connectivity: Thales Inflyt Experience hits IATA and GCA

Four days, two conferences, one topic – connectivity. This week, Thales InFlyt Experience made its presence known at both the International Air Transport Association’s (IATA) annual meeting and the Global Connected Aircraft Summit 2015.

With overlapping dates, the mantra was divide and conquer – up first, IATA. This event, which began on Sunday, June 7, is the world’s largest gathering of airline and aviation leaders. As a long-time strategic partner of IATA, Thales’ Dominique Giannoni, CEO, InFlyt Experience, was at the meeting to interface with customers and partners. He also made time to speak with media about Thales’ growth potential in inflight entertainment and connectivity.  Speaking with Thompson Reuters, Mr. Giannoni predicted strong growth in the market saying, “Annual sales growth of in-flight entertainment systems will remain near or above 10 percent for several years as airlines equip their fleets with connectivity services.”

Hitting on trends in airline connectivity and passenger expectations, Mr. Giannoni was not alone this week in his predictions of Thales’ strengths in inflight entertainment and connectivity.

At the Global Connected Aircraft Summit 2015, Thales InFlyt Experience engaged in all things connectivity, from nose-to-tail, for airlines. This event provided great opportunities for Thales to get in front of key airline buyers and leverage our position as thought leaders in the industry.

Participating in a panel discussion on how airlines can be more resilient to passenger demands in the future, Duc Huy Tran, Vice President Strategy and Marketing for Thales InFlyt Experience focused on cost drivers of connectivity and Thales’ stake in the market.
