The Lufthansa subsidiary Discover Airlines is currently testing a new on-board entertainment system on board the Airbus A320 with the registration D-AIUQ. This will be used from the beginning of April 2024 for at least three years.

Discover Airlines is the first airline in the world to install the Aerena Inseat System from the manufacturer AERQ. The Hamburg startup is a joint venture between Lufthansa Technik and LG Electronics. The cooperation between AERQ and Discover Airlines is supported by the Lufthansa Group Innovation Runway, an internal group initiative that promotes innovative solution finding within the Lufthansa Group and with external partners.

“We are proud to be the first airline to offer this special entertainment system. Discover Airlines guests experience one of the most advanced in-flight entertainment systems in the world on this aircraft. And we are working with our partner AERQ to improve it even further. Our goal is to test the new system in everyday life and, through feedback from our customers, to understand how the travel experience can be further improved and personalized,” explains Maximilian Meintgens, Director Product & Marketing at Discover Airlines. “The insights we collect during the test phase make an important contribution to the further development of the inflight entertainment experience for the entire Lufthansa Group.”
