The Weekly Wrap with APEX: Episode 12

This week’s wrap kicks off by looking at a host of in-flight connectivity (IFC) news, from Gogo enabling IFC at 3,000 feet to FTS’ XStreamSAT becoming the first Ka-band system to launch in China with Qingdao Airlines.

Hosts Maryann Simson and Seth Miller also chat to Christian Mundigler, VP Aftermarket Services at FACC, about the company’s new LAV4ALL concept. He explains how LAV4ALL was designed to give passengers with disabilities more independence and privacy, and details plans to roll out the product across different aircraft types.

Finally, they take a look at how airline alliances have come together to communicate with passengers about the “new normal” in air travel and investigate how On Target Spray Systems’ electrostatic sprayer disinfects aircraft cabins.
