Inflight Dublin has been chosen by Nigerian airline Air Peace to provide a trial of its wireless IFE solution, Everhub. The Ireland-based supplier will equip Air Peace’s brand new Embraer 195-E2 aircraft with the DO-160G certified Everhub Portable wireless server. The browser-based software platform features secure DRM streaming and a fully-customisable Graphical User Interface (GUI) to align with Air Peace’s brand guidelines.
The content package consists of Hollywood blockbusters and TV shows, international content, documentaries, publications and games from Inflight Dublin’s innovative gaming platform, Gladi8tor Gaming.
Air Peace is a passenger and charter airline with a varied fleet of 28 aircraft (B777, B737, ERJ-145 and E195-E2) and currently services 16 local routes, five regional and two international destinations including Johannesburg and Dubai via Sharjah. The airline is reputed for its best-in-class flight services and strong commitment to passenger safety.
Commenting on the news, Air Peace’s inflight entertainment engineer Akram Beldi said: “We have benefited from Inflight Dublin’s expertise in the inflight entertainment industry for many years, allowing us to provide the best on-trend and engaging content to our passengers during their flight. Introducing wireless IFE onboard was something we had been eagerly investigating and Inflight Dublin’s wireless solution ticked all the boxes.
“We are delighted our passengers will be able to experience great inflight entertainment on their journey with Air Peace, whether it is on a seatback screen or their own personal devices.”
Inflight Dublin CCO Barry Flynn added: “We are thrilled to continue to grow our relationship with Air Peace, a valued client for over four years. Deploying Everhub on board their E2 aircraft in a matter of weeks demonstrates the flexibility of the solution and commitment of Inflight Dublin to adapt to our clients ever-changing needs. The continued success of Everhub during such a challenging time for our industry emphasises that our cost-effective approach to high quality wireless IFE is positively resonating with the market.”
Last month, Inflight Dublin announced that it had been chosen by Norwegian regional airline Widerøe to provide a six-month trial of Everhub. Inflight Dublin will equip three of Widerøe’s Embraer E2 aircraft with the DO-160G certified Everhub Portable wireless server.
