Moment has partnered with Iraq-based Fly Baghdad to deploy its Flymingo Box wireless in-flight entertainment (wireless IFE) solution across the carrier’s fleet of Boeing 737NGs.

Looking to meet the ever-evolving needs of mobile-obsessed passengers, Fly Baghdad has chosen to install Moment’s Flymingo Box wireless IFE platform across its fleet of five Boeing 737NGs. 

The system has already been installed on three of the five aircraft since September. It allows passengers to access a host of digital content like movies, TV shows, news and documentaries, as well as detailed flight information and a moving map using their personal electronic devices. Moment’s solution will also enable the carrier to strengthen its existing retail offering with the option to introduce online duty-free shopping and in-flight menus.

Launched in 2015, Fly Baghdad currently offers international flights from its main hub at Baghdad International Airport to Dubai, Istanbul, Cairo, Amman, Pakistan and Saudi Arabia. In future, it is also looking to expand its network to destinations in Europe and India.

Fly Baghdad’s CEO, Basheer Al-Shabbani, said introducing state-of-the-art wireless IFE onboard provides an additional way for the carrier to stand out from its competitors moving forward. 

“Onboard digital innovation is an important step in raising the level of our fleet and transforming the way passengers travel,” he explained. “The partnership with Moment allows us to adopt a ready-to-use globally recognized wireless IFE system. Flexible and robust, it offers our passengers quality content.” 

Tanguy Morel, CEO and co-founder at Moment, said, “This partnership is important for Moment as it supports our strategy in the Middle Eastern market [and] we are pleased to count Fly Baghdad among our customers. By helping Fly Baghdad enhance its passengers’ experience via Flymingo Box, we aim to optimize the services available during the flight and to strengthen the reputation of the airline.”

Al-Shabbani said that Fly Baghdad’s partnership with Moment is already going so well that both parties are now working towards pre-installing the Flymingo Box solution on all new aircraft being added to the carrier’s fleet.
