KID-Systeme is selected by Mirus Aircraft Seating Ltd. as single source USB supplier for Mirus’ seat solutions. The SKYpower system will be seen on the Hawk seat as part of Mirus’ significant launch contract with AirAsia. The contract contains the delivery for 300 aircraft, spanning at least a decade.
SKYpower offers the flexibility to work with the latest cabin and consumer technologies and will be accessed by IFE peripheral experts IFPL. The system marks the customer’s movement to enhance passenger experience. The high-power USB socket itself, and the In-Seat Power Supply unit minimise both weight and intrusion into the passenger space, whilst providing enhanced passenger experience in conjunction with WiFi equipped cabins.
“Today we celebrate a striking success in Asia together with Mirus and we are pleased to announce our new relationship with MIRUS and IFPL, offering an innovative, low cost, low weight & high power USB solution. The system can be installed on Airbus line-fit aircraft as well as on all types of retrofit programmes”, says Jens Markworth, VP Sales KID-Systeme GmbH.
“The innovative and open approach of Mirus, KID-Systeme and IFPL has enabled a step change in the integration of peripherals into the seat. This solution demonstrates that ergonomics and aesthetics do not have to be compromised to deliver a low cost, low weight integrated solution. In fact, it provides a significant enhancement to the passenger experience and competitive advantage to an airline” states David Thomas, VP Business Development at IFPL.
“We are excited to be working with KID-Systeme GmbH to deliver a line-fit offerable power system. Along with the integrated USB port in the armrest (developed in conjunction with IFPL) we are proud to be offering such an elegantly integrated solution that brings quality power to passengers” says Phil Hall, CEO of Mirus Aircraft Seating.
