NetJets Entertainment™ offers most elaborate IFE system available industry-wide; Installation has begun for all NetJets Signature Series Aircraft
COLUMBUS, OH (April 15, 2015 )- NetJets® Inc., a Berkshire Hathaway company and the worldwide leader in private aviation, announced the integration of a new In-Flight Entertainment (IFE) system into all its Signature Series aircraft. The IFE system streams movies, television shows, news and other information to the customer’s personal devices, and is continuously refreshed with the latest content. This addition to the Signature Series is just one more convenience exclusive to NetJets customers in the U.S.
“The new IFE system in our Signature Series aircraft is yet another added benefit for our customers that set us apart from anyone else in private aviation,” said Adam Johnson, SVP of Global Sales, Marketing and Owner Services. “NetJets is the first and only private aviation company to offer this valued ‘extra’ in addition to other amenities and experiences like WiFi, Text & Talk, and other modern conveniences that makes the NetJets experience unique.”
IFE is currently being installed in the new Signature Series aircraft entering the fleet starting with the Phenom 300. By the end of 2016 the system will be retrofitted on all Signature Series aircraft including the Challenger, Global, and Latitude fleets in the U.S. and Europe.
NetJets Entertainment is an application (app) for use on a passenger’s personal tablet, laptop, or the NetJets device assigned to the aircraft, and it is exclusive to NetJets. A server installed on the aircraft is automatically updated with content upon landing at one of more than a dozen designated locations around the U.S.
