Posted 12 December 2012 · Add Comment

Saudia Private Aviation (SPA) has launched a new iPad app for customers to use on board its business aircraft.

Saudia Private Aviation presented a gift to STC at the show.The new app is installed on 64Gb Apple iPads, which come pre-loaded with content for passengers to use.
The content can include Hollywood movies (for which SPA has a special licence), music, newspapers, games and even a flight time calculator. Other material includes information about SPA’s fleet and partners, such as hotels and car hire companies, plus surveys for passengers to complete.
Dubai-based Solutions 4 Mobility developed the app and the Saudi Telecommunications Company (STC) sponsored the project.
Solutions 4 Mobility managing director Bachar Kassar said the app could be adapted to suit individual customers. It could also display content in English or Arabic, including an Islamic d’ua (prayer for travel).
“Each iPad can hold up to 10 movies or 500 songs,” he said. “SPA can also hold a profile for each of its customers that shows their individual preferences as to content. This can then be loaded before they board the aircraft.”
The app was launched at the show and STC was presented with a gift by Saudia Private Aviation to mark its support.
