AirAsia India, a prominent airline, flying passengers day in and out, has announced a new in-flight entertainment solution. The airline has partnered with Sugarbox, a hyperlocal cloud platform, to launch 'AirFlix', an innovative solution to offer digital access in the skies. The solution will be available for passengers in the entire fleet of AirAsia India. So what's so wonderful and special about this new entertainment solution from AirAsia India?
A release from the airline said that AirFlix provides over 6000 hours of high-resolution content which includes 1000+ Indian and international movies, short movies and 1500+ web series episodes. What you will find sweet about this offering from AirAsia India is that it is entirely free for the passengers.
How Can AirAsia Guests Connect with AirFlix?
AirAsia flyers can go to this webpage to connect with AirFlix - http://www.airflix.airasia.co.in/. Passengers can use a variety of devices, including smartphones, tablet PCs, and laptops.
AirFlix is powered by the patented Cloud Fragment Technology developed by Sugarbox. The technology is meant to give flyers a seamlessly mimicked internet experience, even without in-flight connectivity. Indian airlines mostly don't offer internet connectivity options to consumers who are flying on domestic routes. So this entertainment solution from AirAsia India would definitely be a fresh change for the customers.
What's more, is that AirFlix is integrated with AirAsia India's in-flight ancillary platform, which will enable the passengers inside the aircraft to leverage the solution to browse menus and place orders through personal devices.
AirAsia India said, "With a speed of up to 1Gbps and storage capacity of 8TB, ‘AirFlix’ offers a host of customised options, including Games, Ed-tech content, News articles, Music, E-commerce, and much more."
Siddhartha Butalia, Chief Marketing Officer, AirAsia India, said, "We’re excited to introduce the ‘AirFlix’ experience hub for fliers and to partner with Sugarbox on their pioneering technology platform, offering a wider and more diverse range of captivating content and a literally elevated user experience. We’re looking forward to leveraging the potential of this platform, introducing innovative features and technological integrations even beyond in-flight dining, entertainment, and shopping, and enabling personalised experiences that provide a distinct, differentiated flying experience in a hyper-competitive market.”
