3 Reasons Every Airline Needs to Upgrade Their Inflight Entertainment Systems

3 Reasons Every Airline Needs To Upgrade Their Inflight Entertainment Systems

Nowadays, the act of traveling is much more luxurious than it has ever been before. With more than 8 million people flying somewhere around the world every day, the airline industry has exploded, and with it, in flight entertainment systems. Imagik International Corp. is proud to offer some of the best inflight entertainment systems currently on the market today.

From brand new aircraft display systems to charging ports, more and more airlines are investing in IFE systems and for good reason. Air travel is an enormous industry. In the U.S., direct spending by resident and international travelers averaged $2.5 billion a day, $105.8 million an hour, $1.8 million a minute and $29,398 a second. It only makes sense to reinvest some of the money back into the product and services that account for it all.

Here are three reasons to consistently upgrade your inflight entertainment systems.

    1. Keep Up With Competition: As previously mentioned, there are a lot of airlines making significant profits these days and many of them are doing so by spending top dollar to attract travelers. Approximately 25% of respondents would choose one airline over another if it offered wifi, according to TripAdvisor’s 2013 Air Travel Survey. Close to half (41%) of passengers say they watch movies while in flight. If you don’t have top notch stuff when it comes to inflight entertainment systems like these, customers will take their business elsewhere.

 

    1. Great Return On Investment: Going along with that point is the fact that reinvesting in your product/service provides for a great ROI. In 2014, direct spending on leisure travel by domestic and international travelers totaled $644.9 billion. The bigger piece of the pie you can get, the better for your bottom line. Attracting and retaining clients is the best way to do just that.

 

  1. Convenience and Luxury: It’s not enough to just offer inflight entertainment systems that only include monitors for watching movies. About 37% of air travelers considered an iPad or tablet a carry-on essential in the 2013 survey, up 5% from 2012. Chances are that number is even higher three years later. With products like our Quatro Plus+ in-seat USB charger, you can give your passengers convenient access to power the devices they hold so dear.

For many, air travel is a luxury business. Investing in the proper infight entertainment system is crucial to ensuring success going forward in the 21st century.
