Adaptive, developer of the ACES mobile IFE and digital press system, is celebrating a company milestone, as passengers have downloaded or streamed more than 25 million copies of digital newspapers and magazines since the company’s launch in 2012.
The content has been accessed from passengers flying with more than 20 airlines and airport lounges, with client benefits including cost savings compared with hard copies in terms of fuel usage and transporting/disposal. Passengers also benefit, from access to a wide variety of digital newspapers and magazines from around the globe, in multiple languages, immediate access to new digital content as soon as new issues are released, and the ability to access all of the IFE content at the gate, while waiting to board and to finish reading it once they land in their destination, on their personal device.
“As an airline with 1.5 million+ passengers per year, we are always looking for ways to improve our passengers’ inflight experience and make ourselves stand out from our competitors, without breaking the bank,” said Sophie Jean-Victor, inflight manager at ACES customer, Air Caraïbes. “We chose ACES six years ago because it allowed us to remove all paper magazines and newspapers from our flights while enhancing our press offer. It has proved to be a very reliable and versatile solution, as it can handle many use cases and gives our passengers access to many different content genres, in different languages.”
