Dubai-based flydubai has announced its latest onboard services as part of its ongoing commitment to providing an enjoyable overall travel experience. WiFi connectivity, live television streaming and a new seatback in-flight entertainment interface mark another milestone in the carrier’s cabin product enhancement series.
Ghaith Al Ghaith, Chief Executive Officer, flydubai said, “flydubai has been committed to investing in product innovations and technologies that enhance the travel experience for our passengers from day one. We want to offer customers more choice, a greater experience and affordable access to the technologies we are all coming to expect in the air, just as we do on the ground. Adding WiFi connectivity, live television along with our enhanced ground-breaking in-flight entertainment system will allow us to continue to deliver that personalised flying experience our customers expect and appreciate.”
From April 24, 2016 WiFi connectivity and Live TV will be available through the In-flight portal for the first time on selected flights as flydubai continues to roll out the service across the rest of its fleet. The wireless satellite-based network will allow passengers to buy a package from as low as US$4 to get connected during a flight using their personal devices and from US$8 to tune in to catch up with the news on BBC World News, Al Jazeera or Al Arabiya, enjoy Arabic shows on MBC1 or fascinating documentaries on Discovery.
Daniel Kerrison, Vice President of In-flight Product, flydubai, who has been driving the innovation of its cabin appearance and services since the launch of the airline in 2008 said, "We are excited to be offering as many creative and innovative product choices as we can to our passengers and giving them the option to decide which products and services they wish to include in their travel experience. We are very happy with our partnership with GEE and we are determined to provide our passengers with an experience similar to what they have come to expect from consumer electronics like tablets and smartphones.”
