Regional carrier adopts Bluebox Wow to provide wireless IFE to customers
Air Inuit, a regional airline in Canada serving Quebec’s northernmost communities in Nunavik, has selected Bluebox Aviation System’s portable wireless IFE system – Bluebox Wow – for deployment across its Boeing 737 and Bombardier Dash 8 fleet.
The ‘BYOD’ model
“We were looking for a system to offer our passengers a courtesy entertainment service under a ‘BYOD’ model,” said Christian Busch, Vice-President, Operations and Chief Operating Officer for Air Inuit.
“Plus, as our Boeing 737s and Dash 8s are combi Passenger/Cargo aircraft operated in flexible passenger configurations, the portable Bluebox Wow solution suited our mixed-use and mixed-fleet requirements. Its simplicity, power, portability and passenger friendly interface convinced us Bluebox Wow was the right solution for Air Inuit’s onboard customers.”
Moved on and off aircrafts
“We’re extremely pleased to add Air Inuit to our growing list of Bluebox Wow customers, all of whom recognise the benefits of having a portable wireless system that can be moved on/off and between aircraft,” said Kevin Clark, Chief Executive Officer, Bluebox Aviation Systems Ltd.
“Our award-winning Bluebox Wow is helping make IFE an accessible and affordable option for those airlines that might not have otherwise considered it previously. And we’re delighted to help regional airlines such as Air Inuit enhance their passenger experience with an IFE service.”
Low cost wireless streamed content
The technology provides wireless content streamed to passenger devices in any aircraft cabin, including film, TV, audio, games and other digital content, accessed through any web browser.
With a low cost of ownership, Bluebox Wow is a discrete, portable, lunchbox-sized unit. Stowed in overhead lockers, each box’s swappable rechargeable battery offers 15 hours of streamed content to 50 passengers.
