Pegasus Airlines expands connectivity with Immfly

Pegasus Airlines, the Turkey-based low-cost carrier, is enhancing the digitalisation of its cabin. The airline is achieving that by strengthening its existing partnership with Immfly Group to achieve the full digitalisation of its fleet.

Immfly Group already provides wireless inflight entertainment (WIFE) services aboard Pegasus Airlines’ aircraft. It will now install its state-of-the-art Equilux Aero (LUX-1) hardware solution across the remainder of the carrier’s fleet.

The lightweight and platform-agnostic Equilux Aero LUX-1 hardware is noted for its cost-efficiency. It offers a number of additional advantages that give response to the digital needs airlines face today while providing the perfect foundation for a whole range of connectivity options.

Importantly, Equilux Aero LUX-1 hardware allows for a quick and minimally invasive installation. Airlines experience minimal operational interruption during the installation process.

The equipment offers enhanced reliability as two units are installed per cabin, ensuring that there is always a backup. Significantly, it is scalable and connectivity-ready, providing airlines with the possibility of moving easily from offering WIFE to High-Speed Connectivity should they decide to do so in the future.

Since July 2022, Immfly Group has already completed the installation of the Equilux Aero LUX-1 hardware on 33 aircraft in the Pegasus Airlines fleet. The process was completed smoothly and within the expected time frame.

The first flights equipped with the Equilux Aero hardware were deemed a major success with over 99.99% system availability. The futureproof Equilux Aero hardware gives airlines the opportunity to choose between 4G/LTE ground connection, basic (LEO) inflight connectivity or advanced higher-speed connectivity, allowing airlines to transform their onboard experience.

The installation process will now continue with Pegasus Airlines planning to install four additional aircraft a month until the whole fleet is equipped.

Pegasus operates a network of 126 destinations in 47 countries, including 36 domestic destinations in Türkiye and 90 in other countries. The airline’s main hub is Istanbul Sabiha Gökçen Airport in Türkiye. Türkiye’s leading low-cost carrier represents the new generation of Turkish aviation, having one of Europe’s youngest fleets and serving more than 30 million passengers a year.

Founded in 2013, Immfly Group is based in Barcelona, Spain, and is a technology company specialising in onboard entertainment, retail and connectivity solutions for the airline industry. The company’s services have been installed in more than 1200 aircraft worldwide by 30 leading airlines.
