Malaysian airline AirAsia X has launched the Xcite Inflight Entertainment tab to enhance the in-flight experience for traveling guests.

The Xcite tab - which is a Huawei Mediapad 2 that comes with a 10.1-inch Full HD widescreen display, Harman Kardon audio technology for a richer acoustic experience and headset - offers hours of entertainment with options to shop with the AirAsia BIG Duty-Free catalog included in the tab.

Travelers will get to view popular Hollywood blockbusters, as well as other international and local movies and TV shows; and listen to music, play games, browse magazines using the tab.

It supports five languages (English, Bahasa Malaysia, Mandarin, Korean, Japanese) and is complimentary for all Premium Flatbed seats, while guests traveling on Economy seats will be able to pre-book the tab via airasia.com or request it onboard for a fee.

“We are continuously looking for ways to give our guests an enhanced traveling experience with AirAsia X,” said Benyamin Ismail, Chief Executive Officer of AirAsia X Berhad.

“The content will also be regularly updated to ensure our guests are getting the best quality entertainment when they travel with us.”
