New Delhi, Oct 26 (IANS) Twenty-three new Boeing 777 aircraft of Air India will have digital audio and video-on-demand on every seat in both upper and business class sections as part of the airline's plan to upgrade in-flight entertainment.

The equipment will be procured from the French aerospace, defence and electronics giant Thales and will be delivered by February next year, said an official of the state-owned international carrier.

Called the Thales TopSeries system, the equipment comes with a 23-inch display for the first class, 15-inch screen for the business class and 10.6-inch model for the economy class -- all with touch-screen operations, the official added.

The airline had ordered similar equipment for six Boeing 747 aircraft earlier. 'We will offer passengers the best onboard service and also realise new cost savings as a result of the system's lightweight design,' the official added.

Thales, according to officials, had a 40 percent market share in the in-flight entertainment business last year and ranks among the top three players in the market.
