Zodiac Inflight Innovations celebrates 300th aircraft installation
"It is only just over a year ago since we celebrated our 100th installation so this news shows how rapidly we're progressing," said Matt Smith, CEO of Zodiac Inflight Innovations. "This is a very important milestone both for Zodiac Inflight Innovations and for the airline industry as a whole. The IFEC world has been dominated by two suppliers for too long, resulting in airlines not having the choice they deserve and limiting passengers' access to the very best technology."
RAVE™ has four elements, RAVE™ Centric, RAVE™ Wireless, RAVE™ Cellular and RAVE™ Broadband, which together make up the entire IFEC offering that any airline needs. It is modular, so each airline can select the elements that suit it best and airlines can even provide different elements for economy and premium cabins. All the products are available in one integrated package or as standalone products. Whatever the airline wants from its IFEC, Zodiac Inflight Innovations has a flexible solution to meet its needs.
"Everything Zodiac Inflight Innovations does is based around the principles of RAVE™: the technology is reliable, affordable and very easy," continued Smith. "The RAVE concept applies as much to simplicity of use for the passenger as it does to the airline's purchasing, marketing and maintenance teams."
- RAVE™ Centric IFE is the very best in-seat IFE.
- RAVE™ Wireless uses wireless access points (WAP) to create an onboard wireless network for the distribution of films, TV, music and moving maps to passengers' own PEDs, including smartphones, tablets and laptops.
- RAVE™ Cellular is Zodiac Inflight Innovations' inflight mobile phone product.
- RAVE™ Broadband is inflight Wi-Fi and connectivity off the aircraft.
