Bluebox Wow’s list of customers continues to grow after South Korean low-cost carrier Jeju Air announced it will offer the wireless in-flight entertainment platform on 39 narrow-body aircraft.
Jeju Air has decided to deploy the Bluebox Wow portable wireless in-flight entertainment (IFE) across its fleet of Boeing 737-800s, following a trial in late 2018. The lunchbox-sized units can be stowed inside overhead bins and deliver content including movies, TV shows, audio and games than can be streamed wirelessly to passengers’ mobile devices, accessible through any web browser.
The new IFE service is free of charge for passengers on board 10 of the South Korean low-cost carrier’s aircraft on flights between Incheon Airport and destinations including Bangkok, Guam, Saipan, Vientiane, Hong Kong, Macau, Kota Kinabalu and Da Nang. Bluebox Wow is scheduled to be rolled out to a total of 39 aircraft by April.
