Xejet, a Nigerian business class-only airline airline that launched last year, is set to deploy Moment’s Flymingo Box, a portable wireless in-flight entertainment system, across its fleet. Xejet already flying the system on its two 50-seat Embraer ERJ 145 aircraft, and will fit it onboard its new 56-seat Boeing 737-500. Xejet passengers can connect their personal electronic devices to the box and access free IFE content in different languages, including films, TV shows, musical playlists, games and podcasts tailored to the airline’s passenger profiles.
The Flymingo Box also features a Crew App that simplifies operations related to passenger IFE services. Xejet crews can use a tablet to monitor the IFE system and manage wi-fi connections, box battery life or deactivate streaming during announcements.
“We are very satisfied with this collaboration on our existing ERJ 145 aircraft, as we were looking for an upgraded passenger dedicated solution. Our agile, startup business model requires experienced technology partners,ˮ said Emmanuel Iza, CEO of Xejet. “Considering the size of the aircraft we operate; we want our passengers to benefit from the same personalised service they can experience on a private jet. Flymingo Box supports our development across the continent, a growing market where we must be operational and innovative to respond to new opportunities.”
Tanguy Morel, CEO and co-founder of Moment added, “Africa is a promising market, yet full of challenges, with each airline having its specifics. The great strength of Flymingo Box is its ability to adapt to all infrastructure. Its agile technology is easily integrated into all aircraft and allows airlines to select only the content they want for an enriching experience at an affordable price.”
