Air Cairo is to equip its fleet with the Flymingo box, the wireless IFE system from Moment, to elevate the passenger experience and contribute to enhanced comfort in the cabin.
The airline has selected Moment to offer cutting edge entertainment and new opportunities to generate ancillary revenues in-flight. The ability to create a personalised digital traveller experience was key, as an increasing number of passengers bring their smartphones or tablets aboard.
The carrier is one of the largest hybrid and scheduled operation carriers in Egypt, operating seven aircraft now, with three more joining the fleet by the end of the year 2021 and a total of 19 aircraft by the end of 2024. Affiliated with EGYPTAIR, the airline’s growth strategy includes the opening of new routes to West Africa, East Europe, Middle east, and Europe.
Moment’s Flymingo Box offers the capacity for 100 simultaneous streaming sessions and is both a powerful and compact W-IFE device. The seamless, multi-DRM and browser-based platform gives passengers the opportunity to choose entertainment programs from an international and Arabic catalogue of films, documentaries or podcasts.
“We came to Moment to push the boundaries of what’s possible when using digital technology in an offline environment,” said Hussein Sherif, chairman & ceo at Air Cairo. “The Flymingo Box has a number of attributes that other typical systems do not have. It’s a genuine enterprise system that supports our organisation’s safety, access controls and scalability requirements.”
“We are pleased to strengthen Air Cairo’s customer offering by providing the airline with an unparalleled entertainment service. This partnership is also a big step for Moment as we enter the African and Middle East aviation market”, added Tanguy Morel, Moment ceo.
