French company Moment has been selected by Surinam Airways (SLM) to integrate the Flymingo Box solution aboard the airline’s fleet. This decision will give passengers access to an inflight entertainment platform.

    Surinam Airways was looking to offer its passengers a unique service in terms of entertainment while optimising the travelling experience. They chose the French company Moment, after evaluating several solutions, to equip its fleet.

    Flymingo Box is a Wireless InFlight Entertainment solution based on a patented portable server. It can broadcast a catalog of 10,000 hours of content and which can offer IFE streaming to 100 passengers simultaneously.

    Characterised by its power and ultra-compact size, it enables passengers to access a smooth streaming service from any device. All done without the need for an application.

    Thanks to Moment app-free technology, passengers can enjoy Surinam Airways’ DRM-protected content directly from their personal device browser. Moment will also be responsible for the acquisition of content for Surinam Airways’ wireless inflight entertainment and Panasonic seat-back screens. 

    As a result, passengers can access a catalog of premium content including recent movies, documentaries, cartoons, games and music playlists.

    This partnership highlights the quality of our solutions and their ability to enrich the flying experience,” says Michael Serres, COO and co-founder of Moment. “Thanks to its innovative, simple and flexible solution, Moment will make a significant contribution to improving passenger service.”
