Moment has been selected by Air Senegal to install its wireless inflight entertainment (W-IFE) system, the Flymingo Box, aboard the airline’s fleet of A321s and A319s.

The Flymingo Box server uses technology that allows passengers to connect to a local cloud and access streaming content and digital services directly from the browser of their connected personal electronic devices. The Flymingo Box is a hybrid solution, available in battery or aircraft-powered version, that can store a catalogue of 10,000 hours of content and broadcast it simultaneously to 100 passengers inflight.

“Air Senegal strongly believe[s] that the Flymingo Box is remarkable for its fundamental characteristics, such as easy battery change, effortless installation in the aircraft, as well as dynamic content updates,” reads the February 3 press release from Moment.

Air Senegal operates Blaise Diagne International Airport in Dakar and serves 19 routes including domestic and regional destinations, as well as four European destinations, including Paris, Marseille and Barcelona. The Senegalese airline is seeking to accelerate its development, including bringing innovative solutions into the cabin to develop its commercial offering and optimize the passenger experience of its current fleet.

“We are thrilled to be working with Air Senegal and to promote their growth by introducing a new unique and personalized digital passenger experience,” said Tanguy Morel, CEO of Moment. “As Air Senegal contributes to the expansion of African aviation, we are proud to provide a high-end inflight entertainment solution like the Flymingo Box that establish the quality of travel offered by the airline.”

“As Air Senegal was looking to strengthen its commercial strategy in both the leisure and business travel segments, we needed to develop advanced on-board services,” said Mamadou Ba, Executive Director Performance of Air Senegal. “Moment has proven to have strong capabilities to help us in building digital services and accelerating our growth. With the Flymingo Box, we found a compact and powerful solution that is easy to deploy. Its unique functionalities enable us to offer customers traveling on our medium-haul flights a reliable entertainment service with an appealing catalogue of content.”
