Caribbean Airlines is to deploy Bluebox Aviation Systems’ portable wireless streaming platform, Bluebox Wow, on 1 August this year on its Boeing B737-800 fleet for routes across the Caribbean and North and South America.
The platform will deliver ‘Caribbean View’, a free in-flight entertainment service streamed to passengers’ own devices, with content including blockbuster movies, television programmes, games, magazines and other regional content.
“Caribbean Airlines is focused on enhancing the customer experience, and we are excited to introduce ‘Caribbean View’ as part of our in-flight entertainment package,” said Garvin Medera, the carrier’s chief executive officer. “The wireless service will be free to all passengers and the Bluebox Wow platform gives us the quality we want to deliver, in a flexible solution that fits our service upgrade plans.”
Bluebox Wow will be deployed across the airline’s fleet of 12 B737-800 aircraft, on flights of over two hours and above 10,000 feet.
“We’re extremely pleased that Caribbean Airlines has selected Bluebox Wow for engaging its passengers,” said Kevin Clark, chief executive officer, Bluebox. “Bluebox Wow offers a powerful and flexible proposition that will ensure the airline can deliver a fresh and vibrant service that is extremely easy for passengers to access, two things we know are important to an engaging IFE service.”
