Spanish airline, ‘Evelop!’ has renewed its inflight entertainment (IFE) services agreement with Global Eagle, an airline content and connectivity provider. The new contract includes licencing, programming and delivery of movie and television content from major Hollywood and other international studios, increasing the media load by a reported 80%. Content will be managed by Global Eagle’s Spanish programming team, to customise it for Evelop! passenger profiles.
Bruno Claeys, Evelop!’s managing director stated, “This is an important year for our transformation into a modern airline. The addition of next-generation cabin products, including individual onboard inflight entertainment on our recently delivered aircraft, combined with the selection of Global Eagle as our partner, creates the perfect combination to provide a better experience for passengers. Both our regional and growing international customers are sure to be fully entertained.”
Evelop! will move to Open, Global Eagle’s cloud-based content platform in the coming months. This gives the carrier’s IFE manager control over its content and the ability to refresh at will. The new content was made available as part of Evelop!’s June 2019 media cycle update.
