Inflight Dublin Pioneering Wireless IFE With Travel Service

Travel Service, the biggest Czech air carrier, launched a completely unique in-flight entertainment service on its flights, providing a superior level of comfort for passengers. The service is initially being rolled out on scheduled flights under the SmartWings brand.

In October 2017 Travel Service agreed to increase its stake in the national flag carrier CSA Czech Airlines, from 44% to almost 98%. Although Travel Service Group carries fewer scheduled passengers than CSA, its overall operation is much larger, as evidenced by its fleet of 34 Boeing 737s, compared with CSA's 18-strong fleet. The fast-growing group has ambitions to operate a fleet of 70-80 aircraft.
