AirFi, the provider of portable onboard Wi-Fi platforms, has announced a further expansion of its airline client portfolio to 40.

Having announced six new customers in the run up to Aircraft Interiors in Hamburg in April, at the London Aviation Festival AirFi has just announced another 10 client signings.

AirFi is now flying on more than 350 aircraft worldwide, servicing 40 clients. More than 6m passengers have been served and the company is nearing a 6m cumulative flying hours milestone

Job Heimerikx, CEO AirFi, said: “We are seeing the breadth of successful deployments across all aircraft types and more new use cases for AirFi drive this remarkable interest and sharp increase in client acquisition over recent months.

Coupled with this, we’ve been busy dramatically expanding our offer, primarily through our new premium content management service. We are gaining new content clients each month as we expand our premium non-DRM options across multiple languages, cultures and demographics.

We’ve introduced brand-new-to-IFE Mashable You Tube/viral content, same-day catch up ITV soaps and dramas and the latest Hollywood, International and Arabic movie content and boxsets – and all without the need for apps.

Over the upcoming aviation market conference season, kicking off here at the Aviation Festival in London, we will be exhibiting at the leading events, showcasing the latest generation AirFi Box.”

With up to 24 hours of operational battery life, 1Tb data storage and up-rated hardware and software, Heimerikx says the new box makes a step change forward from its predecessors, yet weighs in under 2kg and retains its “hallmark flexibility, reliability and speed of deployment”.

This next-generation edition enables even more features, use cases and revenue streams to be generated by the market’s widely-deployed portable IFE system.
