AirFi, a provider of portable wireless IFE and Connected Crew on-board Mobile POS and Cabin Management platforms, has reached a milestone number of passengers served each year by its on-board digital platforms, reaching over 100 million passengers annually.
Martin Cunnison, CCO of AirFi, said: “It’s with great pride that we are announcing today that AirFi has reached the incredible milestone of reaching over 100 million passengers annually. At least one new client has joined our fast-growing family every month, a fantastic pace we have sustained now for 12 consecutive months, and we are now proudly serving 60 clients around the world.
AirFi created the Portable Wireless IFE system in 2014 to complement its Connected Crew mPOS platform, Cunnison explained, adding: “Through the relentless team-wide focus on operational excellence and continuous innovation, we have evolved AirFi to meet the ever-expanding needs of our customers.”
“As we meet in Dublin for Future Travel Experience Europe over the coming days, I’m also delighted to share recent highlights since the success of Aircraft Interiors Expo. We had a hugely successful launch of the latest generation Venus Box and turnkey Wireless IFE service across Aurora Airlines’ fleet of 15 aircraft in April. Later this month, 41 Venus-equipped aircraft go live with our full service Wireless IFE platform across Aegean’s all-Airbus A320-Family fleet.”
“Connected Crew deployments continue to grow rapidly across our airline partners, in key growth regions and in other key mass transit markets. This growth is a great demonstration of the operational stability and capability of our platforms as passenger transaction volumes sharply increase. The European launch of first-to-market offline debit card processing, has resulted in a significant “step-change” increase in on-board sales-per-flight across our partner airlines,” Cunnison continued.
AirFi recently opened new offices in Singapore and Sydney to complement its existing Asia-Pacific operations in India and Indonesia.
