Cyprus Airways installs AirFi tech

Cyprus Airways has become the latest carrier to use AirFi’s wireless in-flight entertainment across its fleet of Airbus jets.  

The airline is installing AirFi’s portable wireless streaming solutions onboard its all-Airbus fleet of two A320 and two A220 aircraft. It will also seek to outfit new aircraft that are added to the fleet with AirFi’s products in the near-term.  

Each aircraft will be equipped with two AirFi boxes, enabling passengers to access digital entertainment on their personal electronic devices including movies, TV games, music, a moving map and destination-based video content. AirFi’s streaming in-flight entertainment solution is set to go live in time for the holiday season.

AirFi’s Dance24 channel will be on offer, aimed at those who will be travelling to and from the country’s music festivals and party resorts, such as Ayia Napa.  

During the second phase of the deployment, in-seat ordering will be enabled. AirFi’s technology will integrate with the mobile point-of-sale (mPOS) solution used by Cyprus Airways’ crew to allow travellers to order items from the carrier’s in-flight menu using their mobile devices.
