Turkish Airlines updates IFE


Turkish Airlines has renovated its in-flight entertainment, with the view to making it more user-friendly.

The airline’s IFE interface has been re-designed with feedback from “professional usability and user experience laboratories” to make the digital entertainment and information easily accessible to passengers.

The entertainment section encompasses a range of movies, TV, music and games shows from across the globe. New IFE features allow passengers to filter their search by genre and ratings.

There is also a recently added an ‘Accessible Movies’ category with subtitles or voice recordings dubbed for visually challenged or hearing impaired passengers.

The improved 3D map gives passengers impressions about the current flight including position, cockpit, right and left window views, and virtual imagery accompanied with realistic animations and real-time updates on the distance from the port of disembarkation, current altitude and geographical features of the land below.

Passengers can switch to ‘Do Not Disturb’ mode, which lets the cabin crew know that you wish to be left alone during the flight.

Further, the business class cabins now have an additional handset with a second screen, so that passengers can simultaneously enjoy movies on the IFE and track the flight status on their handsets.
