The airline has selected Moment to support its ambition with a cutting-edge digital entertainment service designed to enhance the customer experience while providing new opportunities to generate ancillary revenues in-flight.

 

“We were on the lookout for a full-service IFE company that could support us in all aspects from provisioning the hardware, to creating an engaging IFE portal and sourcing a variety of content,” Said Hussein Sherif, chairman & CEO at Air Cairo.

 

He added: “Moment’s Flymingo Box met Air Cairo expectations as the company was searching for both a powerful and compact W-IFE device. The seamless, multi-DRM and browser-based platform gives passengers the opportunity to choose entertainment programs from an international and Arabic catalogue of films, documentaries or podcasts.”

 

“We came to Moment to push the boundaries of what’s possible when using digital technology in an offline environment. The Flymingo Box has a number of attributes that other typical systems do not have. It’s a genuine enterprise system that supports our organization’s safety, access controls and scalability requirements.”

 

Tanguy Morel, Moment CEO added: “We are pleased to strengthen Air Cairo’s customer offering by providing the airline with an unparalleled entertainment service. This partnership is also a big step for Moment as we enter the African and Middle East aviation market.”
