Estonian Air has completed the rollout of MI Airline’s AirFi system across its entire fleet of Bombardier CRJ900 NextGen and Embraer 170 aircraft.
AirFi offers a secure in-cabin network which passengers can connect to via WiFi-enabled devices to access newspapers and magazines, view RSS-feeds, chat with others onboard, play games and shop. The solution has also been customised to include Estonian Air’s bespoke destination guide for ideas on how to spend time in various cities or plan their next Estonian Air flight.
“We are very proud to have Estonian Air as one of the first airlines to implement the MI Airline system fleet-wide and look forward to developing additional onboard network opportunities together,” declared Job Heimerikx, CEO of AirFi. “With AirFi, Estonian Air has tapped into a wide realm of potential for ancillary offerings and entertainment.”
“In co-operation with MI Airline and their ingenious AirFi system, the entire fleet of Estonian Air is now equipped with a fast and portable network which provides for us a solution that does not require any modification to the aircraft. This enables us to offer passengers a ‘connected experience’ using their own devices. Our system does not require passengers to install an app before the flight and the service is provided for free,” explained Indrek Randveer, Estonian Air’s CCO.
