Moment has announced Wamos Air has selected its W-IFE system Flymingo Box for two of its nine aircraft. The installation of the solution, planned for June 2022, targets two A330's, providing passengers with a range of digital services that meet their appetite for entertainment content.

The Spanish private airline based at Madrid-Barajas Adolfo Suárez Airport was established in 2003 and has become the third-largest long-haul airline in the country. It belongs to the Wamos Group, one of the leaders in the provision of tourist services in southern Europe. Wamos Air operates regular flights as well as leasing its aircraft from various companies, such as Royal Air Maroc, Finnair, Air Algérie, Corsair, Air Austral, Air Caraïbes or Air France, as part of charter contracts.

The diversified business model allows Wamos Air to provide nearly 3,000,000 seats each year. Focused on vacation destinations like the Caribbean, the Dominican Republic or Mexico, the airline is attentive to the customer experience and services that can lead to a positive customer relationship.

Determined to offer its passengers a quality experience through entertainment, Wamos Air chose the Flymingo Box solution. This wireless system stood out from existing solutions with its customer-oriented portal, MOOD - Modular Open On Demand, offering entertainment content (newspapers, movies, podcasts, TV series, games, etc.) tailored to Hispanic travelers and services, reads the June 2 press release. In addition, Moment provides a Crew Application that facilitates cabin operations, allowing them to monitor and manage the service. This portable wireless IFE server is positioned in the overhead bin with no STC requirement. It is secured by a mechanical kit and powered by the aircraft.

"Our growth strategy is based on the development of new routes, but also on an enhanced relationship with passengers. We are committed to demonstrating excellence and constantly improving the passenger experience, from start to finish," said Javier Senent Sansegundo, Continuous Airworthiness Manager at Wamos. "This cost-efficient W-IFE solution was selected due to its ability to easily provide entertainment services without complex technical installation. The Flymingo Box will support our business model, helping satisfy passengers and allowing us to gain their trust. An important point regarding our airline partners."

"The development of passenger experience of Wamos Air is meaningful for the airline and we are proud to contribute and to provide the Flymingo Box system aboard their aircraft," said Yves Laffiché, CCO of Moment. "We have developed this wireless system with advanced components to easily enable all airlines, whatever their size, to offer an intuitive passenger experience rich in customized content and services, for a unique journey."
