Air Ara­bia launches ‘SkyTime’ IFE plat­form

Aviation Business - - CONTENTS -

Low-cost car­rier Air Ara­bia has un­veiled the launch of a new inflight en­ter­tain­ment sys­tem. Aptly known as SkyTime, the new plat­form al­lows pas­sen­gers to connect their pre­ferred mo­bile de­vice and live stream digital con­tent.

Ac­ces­si­ble by con­nect­ing to the SkyTime Wi-Fi net­work right af­ter take­off, the car­rier has al­ready pushed to make the new IFE avail­able across the en­tirety of its fleet.

Fea­tur­ing a wide se­lec­tion of con­tent, pas­sen­gers will be able to ac­cess the lat­est re­leases from Hol­ly­wood and Bol­ly­wood, along with pop­u­lar TV shows trend­ing within the Mid­dle East re­gion.

It has been re­ported by the car­rier that the sys­tem is app-less.

“We al­ways seek to make the best use of tech­nol­ogy to pro­vide added value to our cus­tomers. We are proud to launch ‘SkyTime’, our all new free in-flight en­ter­tain­ment sys­tem solely de­signed to pro­vide cus­tomers with add value while on­board Air Ara­bia flights. This new launch re­flects Air Ara­bia’s commitment to con­tin­u­ously ap­ply in­no­va­tive so­lu­tions aimed at pro­vid­ing real value and con­ve­nience to cus­tomers,” com­mented Adel Al Ali, Group CEO of Air Ara­bia.

The an­nounce­ment is the lat­est tech­ni­cal de­vel­op­ment to be an­nounced by the low­cost car­rier fol­low­ing its re­cent un­veil­ing of Aire­wards, an on­line loy­alty sys­tem that pro­vides cus­tomers with the op­tion to earn points based on money, rather than dis­tance flown.

To date, Air Ara­bia serves over 155 routes from var­i­ous points across the MENA re­gion and main­tains a fleet of 54 air­craft.

It has been re­ported by the car­rier that the sys­tem is app-less.
