Fly Baghdad taps Moment for wireless IFE

By Jane Hobson

Onboard digital solutions provider Moment has announced this week it has been selected by Fly Baghdad to provide an inflight entertainment solution aboard its fleet of five Next-Generation 737 aircraft. The partnership strengthens the airline's offering with a suite of features and an enhanced level of comfort in the cabin.

"As the pandemic put the aviation industry to a halt, airlines prepared the business resumption with a new model adapted to the latest passengers’ expectations. In line with this new context, Fly Baghdad wanted to modernize its passengers' experience by introducing new technologies on board," reads the press release.

Available since mid-September onboard the first three Next-Generation 737s, the Flymingo Box platform allows passengers to access various content from their personal devices starting from entertainment (movies, documentaries, series, and press) to information (moving map, flight details). The advanced portable wireless inflight entertainment device enables the airline to improve its retail performance with an online duty-free and catering catalogue for passenger purchases.

Fly Baghdad launched in 2015 and is based at Baghdad International Airport. It has routes to many international destinations and aims to accelerate its expansion outside of the Middle East to operate flights to Europe and India.

"Onboard digital innovation is an important step in raising the level of our fleet and transforming the way passengers travel," said Basheer Al-Shabbani, CEO of Fly Baghdad. "The partnership with Moment allows us to adopt a ready-to-use W-IFE system that is also a globally recognized solution. Flexible and robust, it offers our passengers quality content. We are already working with Moment on the next step which is to install Flymingo Box in new aircraft in the process of being acquired and added to our fleet."

"We are pleased to count Fly Baghdad among our customers. This partnership is important for Moment, supporting our strategy on the Middle Eastern market," said Tanguy Morel, CEO & Co-Founder of Moment. "By helping Fly Baghdad enhance its passengers’ experience via Flymingo Box, we aim to contribute to optimize the services available during the flight and to strengthen, as a result, the reputation of the airline."
