Royal Jordanian (RJ) launched a new wireless in-flight entertainment (IFE) offering for passengers on the airline’s four Airbus A319 and 6 A320 aircraft.
The new IFE service, which is provided by Bluebox Aviation Systems, provides wireless content streamed to passengers’ personal devices on both Crown (business) and Economy classes.
To be able to view a wide range of films, TV programmes, games, airline info and audio, passengers need to download the ‘Sky Connect’ app on their personal devices from Apple Store or Google Play prior to their flight departure.
This will enable them to stream IFE content provided by RJ for free on their personal devices (smartphones, laptops and tablets).
While RJ provides this service on its A320s and A319s planes, its fleet of Boeing 787s and A321s will still be equipped with the seatback in-flight entertainment system.
Royal Jordanian President & CEO Stefan Pichler said: "We’re continually enhancing our passenger services across all touch points, and Bluebox Wow enables us to do that by delivering wireless IFE to passengers’ own devices.
“It is both a cost-effective and a quick way of modernising the IFE on part of our medium- and short-haul fleet, and with Bluebox’s commitment to continually invest in new capabilities, we know that as the technology advances, so will our ability to deliver even more to our passengers.”For all the latest transport news from the UAE and Gulf countries, follow us on Twitter and Linkedin, like us on Facebook and subscribe to our YouTube page, which is updated daily.
