New Editor Piers to Pilot Inflight at Hamburg


Surrey, UK | April 6, 2015–Inflight is pleased to announce that newly appointed editor, Piers Townley, will be attending this year’s Aircraft Interiors Expo in Hamburg to meet with leaders in the in-flight entertainment and connectivity (IFEC) industry.

“Taking the editorial helm of a publishing team with world-class knowledge of the industry as a good editor is a privilege and a challenge,” commented Piers. “I look forward to witnessing Inflight reach new heights as our team of respected journalists continue to push the editorial of the Inflight media portfolio to keep you at the forefront of IFEC.”

Whilst the event is taking place, Mark Howells, publisher of Inflight, will also be presenting Markus Gilges, director of business development at VT Miltope, with the Inflight award for ‘Innovation in commercial airline cabins’ which was announced earlier this year at the prestigious Inflight Awards Middle East event held in Dubai.

VT Miltope won the award after Inflight’s judging panel of experts selected the company from a number of nominations from leading industry suppliers. The winning criteria was based on VT Miltope’s Cognitive Hotspot Technology.

“Inflight is pleased to award VT Miltope as the winner of the ‘Innovation in commercial airline cabins’ category,” said Mark Howells. “The company is a worthy winner with the development of its Cognitive Hotspot Technology which aims to provide airlines with a solution in facing the challenges of seamless connectivity in-flight.”

The award presentation will take place on VT Miltope’s booth 3C28 at noon on Tuesday 14th April.

Inflight is also proud to be a media partner at The Crystal Cabin Awards.
