IFE Services Produces First ‘History of IFE’ Timeline on Facebook

KNUTSFORD, England, June 28, 2012 — /PRNewswire/ —

Leading in-flight entertainment provider launches a history of the IFE industry, dating back from 1921 to the present day, on popular social media platform.

IFE Services, one of the world’s leading in-flight entertainment (IFE) providers, has produced the first ‘History of the IFE Industry’ on Facebook.

This unique and comprehensive timeline begins in 1921 when the first in-flight movie, ‘Howdy Chicago’, premiered on an Aeromarine Airways flight as the amphibious airplane flew around the city of Chicago.

The timeline includes major milestones in the IFE industry such as the first in-flight movies played on projectors, the launch of in-seat headsets, the development of the first audio visual on-demand (AVOD) system, the introduction of in-seat power and the first ever live TV programme to appear via satellite on an aircraft.

“We’re passionate about our industry and proud of its origins and advancements over the past 90 years,” said Adrian Lambert, Head of Marketing at IFE Services. “We hope IFE professionals and people outside of our industry alike, will find this unique look at the history and developments of in-flight entertainment as fascinating and inspiring as we do.”
