Singapore Airlines’s first-ever flights featuring iPod and iPhone connectivity on KrisWorld started this week on its newly reconfigured, all-Business Class Airbus A340-500 flights between New York and Singapore, and will feature on flights between Los Angeles and Singapore from August.
Customers can now easily enjoy their personal audio and video content from their iPod or iPhone on Singapore Airlines’ KrisWorld in-flight entertainment system. Each seat features a 15.4-inch widescreen LCD screen for watching television shows and movies, as well as active noise-cancellation headphones.
“Customers on our all-business class Airbus A340-500 flights now have an incredible way to enjoy their own iPod and iPhone music and video on the KrisWorld in-flight entertainment system,” said Yap Kim Wah, Senior Vice-President Product & Services, for Singapore Airlines. “This is yet another example of our philosophy of creating customer satisfaction by providing an enhanced sense of choice and control.”
The integrated 9-pin connection on KrisWorld using a unique inflight cable supports iPod and iPhone via the 30-pin connector, including in-seat power supply and high quality audio, and iPod and iPhone content will still allow for the announcements and instructions made by Singapore Airlines cabin crew and pilots. Customers can take advantage of iPhone’s airplane mode to safely use the iPhone through the integrated system.
