The Flymingo Box is the most capable portable W-IFE solution in the industry and has met the expectations of the airline by enabling passengers to connect easily to a local cloud, via their browser, and to access entertainment services directly on their mobile devices. Designed as a compact, battery-operated or aircraft powered server, the system has the capacity to provide video streaming to 100 passengers simultaneously. With this flexible solution, the airline will be able to offer state-of-the-art services to its travelers: AVOD streaming, digital shopping and an interactive moving map.
The new all-Canadian carrier is backed by a seasoned team of aviation-industry executives and board of directors, offering convenient travel options and more destination choices than competitors.
