“It gives us great pride to announce this partnership with UIA and to be working with such a strong and prominent airline in the industry,” said Inflight Dublin’s CCO Barry Flynn in a release. “Everhub is resonating with the airline market as a cost-effective solution to entertain passengers while simultaneously generating significant revenues.”
Flynn said the initial rollout is only the beginning of this exciting partnership and that he is eager to leverage the unlimited potential of Everhub with UIA over the coming years.
“We are excited to work with Inflight Dublin on leveraging their advertising and analytics platform to generate revenue and gain insights into our passengers’ preferences on board,” said Oleksandr Gerekhanov, UIA’s Head of Technologies & Departure Control System Dept. “With all elements provided by one supplier, it will result in impressive cost-savings and operational efficiencies. We have full trust that Inflight Dublin will guide us through our debut into the wireless IFE space and we look forward to providing an enjoyable, touch-free experience to our passengers,” Gerekhanov added.
Advertising will also play a key role in creating new revenue streams for UIA.
