Volotea has begun installing Immfly’s wireless in-flight entertainment (W-IFE) solution on its new Airbus A319 fleet.
Passengers using Immfly’s platform can access content including newsfeeds, magazines, documentaries, kids channels, music and sports videos on their personal electronic devices via an on board Wi-Fi network.
Immfly is set to go live Volotea in July. The European carrier is in the process of replacing its Boeing 717-200s with Airbus A319-100s, and the digital platform will be progressively installed on all of its A319 aircraft.
The company has also revealed it has secured five further partners, based in both Europe and LATAM, for its W-IFE system.
“These new deals reinforce our position as a strong in-flight monetisation channel to the airline market,” commented Jimmy von Korff, Immfly’s co-founder. “We’re delighted to have the opportunity to draw from entertainment content that improves the passenger experience to provide a powerful ancillary tool for our clients.”
Additionally, Immfly offers passengers last minute deals for those who decide to book activities and tickets before arriving at their destination both on the ground and mid-flight.
von Korff added that Immfly’s objective is to become “the travel industry’s favourite on-board monetisation partner, reaching 100 million connected passengers by 2018.”
Immfly has now been operational with Iberia Express for over a year, and it will soon be made available in five languages: English, Spanish, French, Italian and German.
