Envee Inflight Entertainment has partnered with China Eastern Airlines to help them engage passengers and enrich their inflight experience.

Long Beach, California | September 26, 2017– Envee Inflight Entertainment is a leading international IFE provider founded in 2010. The company’s headquarter is based in California, USA with a second office in Chengdu, the ca- pital city of Sichuan, China.

Envee’s content is already available on Panasonic, Thales, Rockwell Collins and Zodiac IFE systems flying on more than 80% of China’s airlines. 2017 is a spe- cial one for Envee due to the successful partnership with China Eastern Airlines, which has helped Envee to become a leader in the IFE software market of China.

It is not easy to integrate with IFE, but Envee is convinced that it is making the best decision. Envee is confident that its deep knowledge of the Chinese people and culture will help it pro- vide the most suitable content for China Eastern Airline passengers.

Games such as “Mahjongg,” “Gumoku” (aka “Five in a Row”), “Huarong Path,” “Chinese Chess” and “Zuma” are favored by Chinese passengers but Envee hasn’t forgotten its Wes- tern passengers or those who want to break from traditional Chinese games.

The Miami-based in-flight games specialist has around 60 new games available for current and future IFE systems. The company is promising to bring a long overdue home gaming experience to the skies that will delight airline passengers of all ages.

For airlines investing in the next generation of Android platform IFE systems, GUE Tech can offer smash hit titles on iPad and Android such as Cut the Rope, Subway Surfer, Ski Safari, Myst and Shadowgun.

For current IFE systems, GUE Tech is releasing even more brilliant titles from the PC and gaming console platforms – iconic titles such as Myst, Riven, Wasteland, Choplifter, Gothic and The Raven.

With these new titles GUE Tech now has an unbeatable catalogue of 220 IFE games for airlines wanting to introduce a top quality gaming package on-board or those wishing to upgrade their existing games package.
