Sun Country Airlines selects AirFi for fleet-wide WIFE

The AirFI wireless IFE solutionAirFi has announced that Sun Country Airlines has signed for fleet-wide deployment, and becomes the global launch customer, of AirFi’s latest aircraft-powered wireless IFE variant.

Operating fully autonomously, AirFi Boxes need no manual crew intervention or daily loading/unloading from the aircraft.

Each Box is aircraft-powered during the day and uses its embedded battery for content and data transfer at ‘end of day’ and during turnarounds.

Brian Davis, CMO, Sun Country Airlines, said: “Sun Country has begun an exciting new chapter in its history. With fresh investment and a new management team led by Jude Bricker, we are transforming the airline into a leaner, low cost carrier.

“Our challenge for this project was to elevate the onboard passenger experience without impacting our cost base, alongside our seat densification programme to increase passenger load across the network.

“Our search began in September 2017 with a thorough assessment of the broad range of IFE offerings in the market. Sun Country wished to phase out the deployment of its portable tablets across its network, offered as a pay-to-access and complimentary IFE service.

“Passengers have come to expect a digital onboard entertainment offering as part of our inflight experience and so a fully-managed Wireless IFE service suited our future needs best.”
