Saudi Royal Fleet set up with a w-IFE


April 4, 2017 – Saudi Royal Fleet, part of Saudia Airlines, has selected Bluebox Wow portable wireless IFE for seven aircraft across its Boeing 747, Boeing 757 and Airbus A340 aircraft – with the systems billed to be set up and flying within a matter of weeks.

“Our standards for our fleet are second to none, and that applies to all aspects of what we deploy in our cabins,” said Dr. Fawzi Alghamdi, Bluebox IFE project manager, Saudi Royal Fleet. “We wanted an innovative IFE solution that would allow our VVIP to use personal devices to access new and exciting content whilst aboard our aircrafts, but given the nature of the use of our fleet we needed something that was easy to deploy with no disruption to service.”

Bluebox Wow (Walk-on w-IFE) provides wireless content streamed to both passenger- and airline-owned devices in any aircraft cabin. The system supports streamed video, audio, moving map, games, digital magazines, and Bluebox’s Seat2Seat networked messaging – all contained within a portable, lunchbox-sized unit.
