The agreement sees Inflight Dublin providing IFE content services to Uganda Airlines with quarterly updates commencing in January 2021.
Inflight Dublin is the largest CSP in Africa, and is currently in partnerships with more than ten airlines in the African region. This experience and knowledge of the African market allows Inflight Dublin to curate a bespoke content package for Uganda Airlines’ passenger audience, including local and international content. The extensive catalogue also consists of Hollywood movies, TV Shows, boxsets, music, games and publications.
Maintaining a current fleet of four Bombardier CRJ-900 aircraft, Uganda Airlines links Uganda to the rest of Africa by operating flights to nine destinations across the continent including Kenya, Somalia, Burundi, South Sudan, Tanzania and Democratic Republic of Congo. In December 2020, Uganda Airlines will take delivery of brand new Airbus A330-800neo and thereafter launch intercontinental flights to Europe, Asia and the Middle East.
“As this is a new venture into the inflight entertainment space for Uganda Airlines, we wanted to choose an experienced and stable partner and Inflight Dublin ticked all the boxes. To partner with such a prominent operator will ensure a smooth entry into service and we look forward to working with them to continue providing the highest level of service to our passengers,” said Cornwell Muleya, Uganda Airlines’ CEO
“We are delighted to secure a 5 year partnership with Uganda Airlines and further strengthen our standing in the African market. To be awarded this contract during such an uncertain time for the industry highlights that our approach and value proposition are really resonating with airlines,” added Barry Flynn, Inflight Dublin’s CCO
