“E-commerce is the future of shopping, and the integration of this feature into our in-flight entertainment system is another industry first for SIA.” Comments Yeoh Phee Teik, Senior Vice President, Customer Experience.
SIA and KrisShop’s relationship in conjunction with Thales, Panasonic Avionics, and AirFree, work to deliver this electronic experience in the air, with an air-to-ground connectivity system.
Which connects KrisShop to the aircraft’s IFE system for in-stock product updates and credit card authorization.
At the moment, the in-flight shopping service is available for a few A350 aircraft. However, it will gradually be expanded to the entire Singapore Airlines fleet.
