Inflight technology provider AirFi has completed the roll out of its technology across the easyJet fleet.
The completion of the project follows successful trials in 2022 and the deployment in the lowcost carrier’s EU and Swiss fleets of 108 aircraft.
AirFi is now installed in all 327 aircraft providing a customised wireless engagement portal enabling passengers to access games, journey-specific content and airline information, plus browse inflight retail offerings using their own mobile phones, tablet or laptops.
To access the content, passengers connect to a local Wi-Fi network created onboard by AirFi’s hardware.
Aircraft do not need to be taken out of service for this digital upgrade. Access to the content is free, and there is no requirement for passengers to download an app before the flight or share personal information to get connected.
EasyJet director of inflight retail, Simon Cox, said: “We are really pleased, that following a phased roll out, we have now completed the program of installing the technology across all our aircraft which has enabled us to introduce digital solutions for the convenience and benefit of all our customers.
“AirFi has been able to meet our ambitious timelines for this project and have integrated well with our existing partners.”
Job Heimerikx, chief executive 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. Stay tuned.”
