Ife screens

Millions of people travel by airplane every day. The majority of the travels are taking the trip for leisure, like a vacation. When you plan a vacation, it usually has to be done months in advance, at least if you are flying.

So you’re ready for vacation, and you have your itinerary all planned out for the trip. You’re all packed and ready to go. You make it to the airport, get through security, and board your plane in plenty of time. You’re in the seat that you will be stuck in for several hours. Now what? You didn’t plan on what to do on the plane like you did for your vacation.

What is there to do on an airplane? You’re sitting in the same place for hours on end. Many passengers rely on their devices for in-flight entertainment. A study conducted by Trip Advisor’s Air Travel Survey in 2013 reported that 37% of airline passengers consider their i-pad or tablet a carry-on essential. These results are up 5% from the previous year. This is why an airplane display with an in flight entertainment system is so important!


Watching movies on a flight is one of the best ways to pass the time, especially when the flight is excruciatingly long. However, movies sometimes can suck a lot of battery power out of a device. Having an in seat power outlet with the airplane display would mean unlimited movies while aboard the aircraft!


Reading has been a very common pastime on flights, even before devices like smartphones and tablets were around. Now that these devices are in everyone’s hands at all times, reading on a tablet or i-pad is the new thing. Many airlines are now offering airplane plug adapters so you can plug in your device, even if you do not necessarily have the proper connection. So you don’t have to worry about your device losing power when you’re at the best part of the book!


Last but not least, the good old games on our smartphones are a great way to stay entertained on a flight. In flight entertainment companies are taking note of things like this, and are making it easier than ever to use and charge your smartphone or tablet on any flight. So if you want to play Candy Crush to your heart’s content on the airplane, you are more than capable!

An airplane display that has outlets for passengers to charge their devices is an essential for air travel because we just can’t put down our devices!
