The Bluebox Wow system went live on Royal Jordanian May 26

Royal Jordanian has selected Bluebox Aviation Systems to provide a wireless inflight entertainment system on board the airline’s four Airbus A319 and six A320 aircraft.

“Sky Connect”, as the new IFE service is called, is deployed on the Bluebox Wow portable wireless IFE system that went live May 26. Royal Jordanian passengers are able to stream movies and TV shows for free to their own personal devices. Additional content includes music, games and airline information.

"We’re continually enhancing our passenger services across all touch points – and Bluebox Wow enables us to do that by delivering wireless IFE to passengers’ own devices,” said Royal Jordanian President and CEO Stefan Pichler. “It is both a cost-effective and quick way of modernising the IFE on part of our medium- and short- haul fleet, and with Bluebox’s commitment to continually invest in new capabilities, we know that as the technology advances, so will our ability to deliver even more for our passengers."

“We are delighted that Royal Jordanian has chosen Bluebox Wow,” said Kevin Clark, CEO, Bluebox. “Both the technological innovation and the deployment model of Bluebox Wow make Royal Jordanian and its fleet of A319s and A320s a natural fit for Bluebox Wow – a solution that engages passengers with a variety of IFE content and offers airlines a flexible solution to the upgrade/retrofit question.”
