Now the Indian air traveler flying between smaller cities connected by Kingfisher Airlines can also enjoy unlimited in-flight entertainment. The new ATR aircraft recently inducted into the fleet have 17 LCD colour screens spread throughout the cabin. The TVscreens operate on a drop down mechanism. No headphones or earphones are required since the audio comes through overhead speakers.
“In view of the explosive growth in the Indian civil aviation market, it is imperative for aircraft manufacturers to provide the best services to Indian travelers,” says ATR CEO Filippo Bagnato. In a short span, Toulouse, Southern France-based regional aircraft manufacturer ATR has captured a major share of the civil turboprop market in India. ATR aircraft are operating to smaller Indian towns that did not have any regularly scheduled air service.
