Thales has introduced a portfolio of solutions which aim to support its global airline customers with advanced technologies to restore confidence in air travel by enhancing the health safety and wellness of passengers.
The Ready to Fly portfolio of solutions are designed to help airline customers restore passenger confidence in air travel during the crisis and in a post-pandemic world.
With Ready to Fly, Thales InFlyt experience is focussed on expediting the digital transformation through passenger-centric solutions and integrated products as well as services that increase crew efficiency. Ready to Fly solutions enable cabin innovations that reduce touch and mitigate passenger congestion.
The touchless solutions allow passengers to safely control the inflight entertainment system with their personal phone or tablet, including digital versions of onboard paper menus, magazines and important safety and health information. To reduce physical interactions with the crew, while maximising services, the Thales Travel Assistant solution will enable passengers to request and receive automated information on the seatback monitor. The crew will also have the ability to gather information, receive notifications and control the cabin from their own secure personal phone or tablet.
Thales is leveraging its network of partners to develop cabin automation solutions that decrease congestion, facilitate aircraft disembarking, and manage passenger flow by using synthetic data.
“Most important to Thales is that we are here to support our airline customers and work with them to tackle their toughest challenges during these unprecedented times. Our solutions are highly automated, reduce the need for interaction, and increase the efficiency of airline ground and air personnel. Ready to Fly brings multiple innovations that enhance wellness in the cabin while providing the best passenger experience,” said Neil James, Vice President Sales, Thales InFlyt Experience.
