Spicejet has launched a revamped version of its complimentary inflight entertainment system called Spicescreen.
Developed in partnership with an Indian start-up, Spicescreen is a light-in-weight, wireless entertainment system that enables smooth delivery of content on to the personal devices of the passengers through the wifi network.
Travellers can easily access Spicescreen content including movies, popular TV shows, cartoons and stand-up comedies, on any of their hand-held devices such as a smartphone, tablet or a laptop by simply connecting to the onboard wireless network.
Spicecreen is now available across all Spicejet flights.
Ajay Singh, chairman and managing director, Spicejet said, “While we are extremely happy to launch our revamped inflight entertainment system offering our passengers the latest and the best blockbuster content, what makes me especially happy and proud is that most of the technology used in Spicescreen is ‘Made in India’ – developed indigenously by our team along with a local start-up. Using Android phones, weighing around 200 grams each, to perform the dual role of wifi servers and content hub is a remarkable achievement and costs us barely one per cent of the cost that we were paying previously to foreign service providers!
“Going forward, we will use the local wifi for providing additional onboard services to our customers. This is yet another step in our journey towards a stronger and a more Aatma Nirbhar (self-reliant) airline.”
