Seamless Air Alliance CEO Talks OpenIFC Release 2

October 30, 2020

On this episode of the Connected Aircraft Podcast, Jack Mandala, CEO of Seamless Air Alliance, joins to discuss the organization’s latest in-flight connectivity standard, “OpenIFC” Release 2.

Seamless Air Alliance was established in 2018 by Airbus, Airtel, Delta, Sprint and OneWeb as a coalition with the goal of driving down the price and increasing the availability of in-flight connectivity service, technology and upgrades. Following its publication of the world's first inflight connectivity (IFC) standard earlier this year, Seamless Air Alliance, a global community of airlines and technology leaders driving solutions to advance inflight connectivity, today announced the completion of Seamless Release 2.0.

This latest Release defines the information provided by each network component, enabling suppliers to design and build OpenIFC products using the modular architecture and open interfaces from its first release.
