Singapore Airlines offers in-flight iPhone connectivity

Ben Wilson

Singapore Airlines has announced the integration of iPod and iPhone connectivity starting today on its newly reconfigured, all-Business Class Airbus A340-500 flights between New York and Singapore, and between Los Angeles and Singapore from August. The mechanism projects iPhone or iPod-stored content onto the in-seat 15.4-inch widescreen LCD via the standard 30-pin connector, which also supplies power and audio connectivity.

A press release states:

"iPod and iPhone will still allow for the announcements and instructions made by Singapore Airlines cabin crew and pilots to be heard even while content is being played. Customers can take advantage of iPhone's airplane mode to safely use the iPhone through the integrated system. iPod and iPhone integration will commence with Singapore Airlines' A345 non-stop flights from Newark - Singapore on May 15, and on the carrier's Los Angeles - Singapore non-stops from August."
