AirFi off to a flying start in 2018

Posted 25 January 2018 · Add Comment

AirFi, a provider of portable onboard digital platforms, has signed two new large airline clients - a major contract expansion and a landmark deal to expand and support its growing Middle East and North Africa footprint.

“Welcoming two new larger fleet operators into the AirFi client family and tripling the AirFi-enabled fleet at one of our longest-standing airline customers, represents a hugely exciting opportunity for us and the level of confidence our clients have in our technologies and capabilities,” said comments Job Heimerikx, CEO.

“Again, all three customers have opted to entrust AirFi with our fully-outsourced turnkey service, providing not just the AirFi Wi-Fi platform but also sourcing a wide range of curated content across international and regional distributors and adding to the number of languages and written script variants that AirFi now supports.

"We are continually looking at how AirFi can be as simple and powerful to deploy across large fleets as it is for smaller fleet operators and into new markets. We are already seeing a high level of interest in our simple but elegant aircraft-powered alternative to using the 24-hour battery power, so AirFi Boxes remain classified as carry-on equipment, but can stay onboard instead of rotating daily with the catering bar sets.”

He added: “The magnitude of this new deal with a major regional catering organisation in the Middle East, really underlines how robust and adaptable our technologies are considered, being slated for rapid deployment throughout their entire organisation.”
