Aircom Pacific, through its Taiwanese representative Klingon Aerospace, will provide an on board system featuring dual Ka and Ku band antennas, providing the cutting edge Ka band connectivity where it is available, while using Ku connection for the areas that do not have Ka coverage. This system ensures that coverage is not dropped between bands for a better passenger experience. Utilizing this system allows airlines to take real time payments for duty free purchases, offer direct streaming TV and videos with thousands of channels and offer services on board not previously possible or available. Real time offers of travel insurance, hotel booking options, rental cars and other travel services are now possible for passengers directly from the comfort of their cabin seat. Hong Kong Airlines and Aircom Pacific also entered into an MOU relating to Aircom Pacific’s AirCinema™ system, a revolutionary development that will transform passengers’ IFE experience by offering a true theatre experience while in the air.
