Following the rollout of its in-flight technology on easyJet’s EU and Swiss fleets, AirFi will now deploy its portable streaming solution across the remainder of the low-fare airline’s fleet.
Luton-based easyJet trialled AirFi’s technology in October 2022, and later equipped an additional 108 aircraft. It has now deployed the streaming technology across all 327 of its aircraft.
The in-flight system powers a customised wireless engagement portal enabling passengers to access airline information, games and journey-specific content. To connect, passengers link to a local Wi-Fi network created by AirFi’s hardware solution.
Aircraft don’t need to be taken out of service for the digital upgrade, and access to the content is free.
Simon Cox, easyJet’s Director of Inflight Retail, commented that the technology installed across the aircraft would enable it to “introduce digital solutions for the convenience and benefit of all our customers” and that AirFi had been “able to meet our ambitious timelines for this project”.
Job Heimerikx, CEO of AirFi, added:
“We’re thrilled to have been able to complete a fleetwide deployment with easyJet in such a short amount of time. It’s a real testament to the strength of this partnership and the commitment to excellence on both sides. We are equally excited for the next steps in the partnership.”
