To give our customers better and detailed insight into the In-Flight Connectivity and Entertainment (IFEC) industry, we have teamed up with Valour Consultancy, an independent research company, merging its in-depth IFEC intelligence with our own extensive fleet database.

The collaboration means that the ch-aviation customer will be able to see which IFEC system, from which manufacturer is installed on an aircraft, how the system was installed (retrofit or a line fitment) and who the service provider for it is.

These are the data points that can now be added to our fleet data:

IFC – (Inflight Connectivity System)

  • IFC product type (Wi-Fi / cellular / Wi-Fi and cellular)
  • Service provider
  • Fitment type (retro/line fitment)
  • Technology type (L-band / Ku-band / Ka-band / 2Ku / ATG / Hybrid)

IFE – (Inflight Entertainment System)

  • Product type (seatback, overhead, fixed installation W-IFE, portable W-IFE)
  • Service provider and equipment providers
  • Fitment type (retrofit / line fitment)
  • Internet-enabled / not Internet-enabled (W-IFE)

Both datasets form Valour Consultancy’s quarterly IFC and IFE trackers, representing a fundamental part of the company’s portfolio of aviation intelligence. The data has become a trusted source of information for Valour’s clients located worldwide and is subject to a comprehensive due diligence process, ensuring a high level of accuracy. It is recommended for anyone with a vested interest in the IFEC space and seeking regular updates on installation activity or new wins.

Furthermore, Valour Consultancy is committed to gradually expanding its IFEC trackers with new data points being introduced regularly through subscriber feedback.
