[Avionics Today 04-12-2016] Turkish Airlines will deploy Kontron’s wireless In-Flight Entertainment (IFE) system “SKYFE,” across its fleet. SKYFE allows passengers to download applications from Google Play and Apple Store to their own smart devices during preflight and access wireless entertainment content during the flight.

Turkish Airlines selected the system, which was developed jointly by Havelsan and Turkish Technic, for deployment on its narrow-body fleet. Based at Istanbul’s Atatürk Airport, Turkish Technic is an aircraft Maintenance, Repair and Overhaul (MRO) service company in the region. Havelsan, based in Ankara, is the software provider for the system.
