Immfly enhances SDQ lounges with digital entertainment
Immfly Lounge is now available in the VIP lounges of Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic's Las Aeropuerto Internacional Las Américas (SDQ), one of the largest airports in the Caribbean.
According to a press release from Immfly, the airport handles 3.5 million customers each year and its top 10 routes include direct flights to hubs in the U.S., Europe and South America. Carriers flying out of the location include American Airlines, Iberia, Delta, Avianca, Spirit, Air Europa, JetBlue and United Airlines.
At SDQ, Immfly Lounge provides streaming digital entertainment with customized services for premium airline passengers. With this service, airlines and lounges can extend Immfly’s service to any designated pre-boarding area, to the inflight experience and even post-flight. Plus, optional features such as managed web services ensure customers can access information related to content they will be able to enjoy, prior to arrival at the airport. For example, Iberia Express selected a service that informs its customers prior to traveling which Game of Thrones episodes they will be able to view during their travels.
TV shows, audiobooks and e-books, podcasts, games, music, magazines, destination guides, news and content for kids can be made available for the guests of Immfly's airline customers. Specially customized modules can also be developed for lounge partners, such as shopping opportunities and offers of upgrades and other services.
