"World first" claim alert, as Singapore Airlines introduces an app for passengers to plan and control their in-flight entertainment on-board.
The airline says the app (available for both Android and iOS6-hosted tablet devices) allows passengers to view the lists of video and audio content that will be available to them on a flight.
Users can pre-select favourite items and then, on-board, control the seat-back IFE system from their device.
Apple and Android smartphones will have an app made available in the second quarter of 2016.
To control the system, passengers connect to the aircraft's wifi once in the air, giving them access and control to their own seat's IFE and a list of their pre-selected favourites.
Singapore's KrisWorld IFE system is powered by Panasonic Avionics. The app was created by Travelport-owned MTT.
Passenger functions usually contained within the system, such as flight progress and information, will be available on the app in the air whilst video and audio content continues to run on the seat-back viewer.
The carrier's new Airbus A350 aircraft will be the first to feature the service, with Boeing 777s next on the roll-out, followed by the remaining members in the fleet.
