For airlines, in-flight advertising is a valuable source of revenue, especially as they seek to offset the costs of offering in-flight entertainment and other amenities. Advertisers benefit from a captive audience of affluent consumers who are often difficult to reach via traditional advertising channels.

To provide passengers with a more personalized and engaging entertainment experience, in-flight advertising providers are collaborating with streaming services. Panasonic Avionics, for example, collaborated with Amazon Prime Video to provide passengers with streaming access to television shows and movies.

Artificial intelligence and data analytics are increasingly being used by in-flight advertising providers to target ads to specific audiences and measure campaign effectiveness. Global Eagle, for example, collaborated with Black Swan Data to create a predictive analytics tool that allows advertisers better understand passenger behavior.
