Cyprus Airways deploys AirFi Wireless IFE on its all-Airbus fleet

Cyprus Airways is deploying AirFi’s wireless in-flight entertainment on board its all-Airbus fleet of two A320 and two A220 aircraft and seeks to outfit new aircraft that are added to the fleet with AirFi’s products in the near-term.

Each aircraft will feature two AirFi boxes that enable passengers to access in-flight entertainment on their personal electronic devices such as movies, TV games, music, a moving map and destination-based video content. AirFi’s Dance24 channel will also be part of the entertainment offering.

In-seat ordering will be enabled during the second phase of the deployment. AirFi’s technology will seamlessly integrate with the mobile point-of-sale (mPOS) solution used by Cyprus Airways’ crew to allow travellers to order items from the carrier’s in-flight menu using their mobile devices.

AirFi’s CEO Job Heimerikx commented: “We’re honoured that the flag carrier of Cyprus has selected AirFi as a cornerstone in its plans to level-up the onboard experience. And personally, I’m delighted to be working with Cyprus Airways’ CEO, Paul Sies, whose achievements I very much admire.”

“With the addition of the A220, our products have now been deployed across every aircraft in the Airbus family. This proves that our offering is truly versatile, and the benefits that come with it are indiscriminate of the type of airline using them,” Heimerikx added.

Paul Sies, Cyprus Airways’ CEO, said: “We are highly impressed by the range of functionality offered by AirFi’s intuitive wireless in-flight entertainment and in-seat ordering solutions. We needed something scalable to suit our ambitious growth plans and provide a hassle-free travel experience that serves all our guests needs. We’re looking forward to having AirFi along the flight to the success of Cyprus Airways.”
