The US-based long-haul carrier Eastern Airlines has selected Immfly to offer its wireless in-flight entertainment (WIFE) platform.
Immfly’s W-IFE platform will be installed on nine Eastern Airlines Boeing 767s in the coming months. Eastern and Immfly will offer a platform with integrated digital services including a combination of revenue generation tools.
Passengers will also be able to access the WIFE portfolio of video and audio content and the platform will also be made available in multiple languages to serve the airline’s demographic profile.
“Eastern looks forward to launching Immfly’s Connected Digital Services Platform across its full fleet,” said Eastern’s President & CEO, Steve Harfst. “We see a clear opportunity to enhance our service and operations with one of the most innovative propositions in the market delivering a premium IFE experience to our passengers while fortifying our competitive edge.”
The agreement with Eastern Airlines marks Immfly’s first customer in America and will bring Immfly’s offering to the North American market.
Jimmy M. Korff, Immfly’s co-founder comments: “We are confident we will contribute real value to Eastern’s current operations and ambitious plans.
“This US partnership with Eastern reinforces the relevance of our unique proposition to international long haul carriers, and builds on the broader success demonstrated with our clients to date.”
