Air Seychelles et AirFi, a high-flying partnership

Luxury is also about exclusive entertainment on board! Air Seychelles, established in 1978, knows it all and has now selected AirFi to offer a new wireless streaming inflight entertainment experience on its new aircraft, the A320neo.

Having launched its long-haul service in 1983, the national airline company of the Seychelles, currently offers international flights to Johannesburg, Mauritius and Mumbai, along with more than 350 domestic scheduled flights per week in the archipelago. Thanks to its strategic partnership with Etihad Airways, it can boast its position as one of the key stakeholders of local tourism of the island nation. And it will leverage on its new plane, the A320neo set to be delivered in July 2019, to bring a new dimension to inflight entertainment.

AirFi, technology at its best

AirFi, the market-leading provider of portable onboard Wi-Fi platform, will henceforth modernise inflight digital experience for Air Seychelles passengers with extra flexibility and connectivity. Travellers will be able to use their own smartphone, tablet, laptop and headsets to stream the wide available range of inflight entertainment programmes such as movies, TV programmes, games, audio (including a dedicated creole music channel) and moving maps.

Welcome quality on board

The high-speed wireless streaming platform – powered by AirFi boxes and operating in full autonomy as a carry-on equipment – is currently being used across 65 countries. Recently implemented by Air Namibia and Nile Air in Africa, as well as by other A320neo operators in Scandinavia, Asia and the Middle East, AirFi is a must-have for airline companies looking for modern, highly efficient, sustainable and reliable devices for an enhanced tailor-made experience. And, it will perfectly meet the requirements of small fleet operators.

Air Seychelles, a step higher

As stated by Remco Althuis, Chief Executive Officer of Air Seychelles:

“The aviation industry is evolving globally and aircraft operators are increasingly looking into ways to further enhance the experience of their guests in addition to ensuring their business generates better revenue”.
