AirFi makes waves in China 

AirFi has expanded into China with United Enterprise.

To mark this new partnership, the cabin technology supplier has branched out under the title AirFi China. 

United Enterprise will represent its box IFE streaming, Connected Crew mPOS and LEO connectivity.

Plans to integrate backbone technology to AirFi’s in-seat ordering capability with AliPay are also underway. Payment with QR codes is a priority.

Job Heimerikx, CEO at AirFi, said: “United Enterprise is a very well-established player in China with a vast network of customers and broad experience in aircraft OEM projects, aftermarket sales and distribution, MRO and more. We look forward to growing AirFi’s presence in the Chinese market together.”

Angie Peng, Business Development Manager at United Enterprise, added: “AirFi is the global leader in portable wireless IFE solutions, onboard retail technology and low-bandwidth aircraft connectivity and we see a great need for such innovation in the Chinese aviation sector. 

“It is expected that the market response to AirFi China will be strong. We have already begun marketing AirFi solutions in the region with positive responses.”
