AirFi's portable streaming solution now on easyJet’s entire fleet
After an initial trial period, easyJet has now deployed the AirFi portable streaming technology across its entire fleet of 327 aircraft. “The inflight system powers a customized wireless engagement portal enabling passengers to access games, journey-specific content and airline information, plus browse inflight retail offerings using their own mobile phones, tablet or laptops,” a recent release said.
To access the content, passengers simply connect to a local Wi-Fi network created onboard by AirFi. Aircraft do not need to be taken out of service for this digital upgrade. Access to the content is free, and there is no requirement for passengers to download an app before the flight or share personal information to get connected.
“We’re thrilled to have been able to complete a fleetwide deployment with easyJet in such a short amount of time. It’s a real testament to the strength of this partnership and the commitment to excellence on both sides. We are equally excited for the next steps in the partnership,” said Job Heimerikx, CEO of AirFi, in the release.
