FlightPath3D has now installed its wireless in-flight entertainment (IFE) 3D Moving Map product on over 1,000 aircraft in total. The news follows a recent announcement that the company had secured its 50th airline customer in less than five years.
On installing its 1,000th aircraft with its wireless IFE moving map solution, president of FlightPath3D Duncan Jackson said, “We’re delighted to have many airline customers flying with our wireless IFE map, including Southwest, Air Europa, Air France, All Nippon Airways, Air Arabia, Arkia, Jet Airways and WestJet.”
“Our use of personalization and new artificial intelligence will enable passengers to travel globally like a local,” Jackson continued. “For example, we’ve analyzed hundreds of millions of traveler data points to recommend hyperlocal attractions in every town and back corner of the world and even sorted them by popularity – it looks amazing!”
“We also want to help airlines drive revenue, allowing passengers to explore flight times and destinations to promote airline ticket sales, and estimate journey times from aircraft to hotel to promote ground transportation partners. It’s a potent cocktail when you combine rich passenger experience features with revenue generating capabilities,” he concluded.

Commenting on the milestone, Alexis Capdevila, manager, Inflight Entertainment and Connectivity at Air Europa, stated, “We selected FlightPath3D as the map provider for our fleet as they have the most innovative feature-rich product, providing an immersive game-like 3D experience for our passengers, enabling them to follow the flight path, explore things to do at their destination and for our younger travelers, discover the animals of the world.”
Dr. Joe Leader, Chief Executive Officer of the Airline Passenger Experience Association (APEX), said, “While the number of aircraft with seatback screens continues to increase every year, advances in wireless streaming will massively expand the number of airline passengers worldwide able to enjoy in-flight entertainment. APEX is proud to see FlightPath3D reach its 1,000th wireless implementation to reach more passengers than ever watching their journey fly forward on their mobile phone, tablet, or laptop.”
