Singapore Airlines Offers First Airline iPod Support

May 15th, 2008 | By | Category: General, iPods & Portable Media Players

Singapore Airlines (SIA) claims that it’s the first airline to offer passengers the ability to connect their iPods to an in-flight entertainment (IFE) system.

The first flight to allow passengers iPod integration with the Panasonic Avionics IFE system was operated out of Singapore earlier this month. The Airbus A340-500 is operating to Newark in the USA.

A spokesman says a check with Apple has confirmed that SIA is the first airline to let passengers play iPod/iPhone music and videos through an IFE system.

“Customers can now easily enjoy their personal audio and video content from their iPod or iPhone on Singapore Airlines’ KrisWorld in-flight entertainment system,” says SIA. “Each seat features a 15.4 in widescreen LCD screen, which is perfect for watching television shows and movies, as well as active noise-cancellation headphones.”

United Airlines also plans to introduce iPod support.
