Want to know more? Below are answers to our most frequently asked questions.
What is the technology of the platform?
Can I add my own modules?
Yes. AirFi also provides an API to obtain basic flight data, passenger data and product data if the connected crew platform is also used on that flight.
Can the AirFi platform run independently from the AirFi Box?
Yes, we are currently talking to multiple IFE and Fixed Wifi providers to deploy the platform on their servers, and provide you with a flexible and cool portal.
Do you provide Internet connection?
No, Satellite systems for aircraft are very costly, require downtime of aircraft and certifications. Next to that the bandwidth used is extremely costly, and passengers have shown not willing to pay it, especially given the quality of the service (low bandwidth, frequently failing connectivity).
AirFi gives local content to Passengers, much more fun and useful than the current systems in the market, and uniquely provides daily updated content (news items, newspaper, video feeds, social feeds, etc)
Do you stream movies?
Yes, movies and television shows. In case it is DRM content (encrypted movies) an mobile app is required. Non-DRM content is shown in the browser of mobile devices.
How many movies can you store?
Depending on your needs, we can store up to 200 movies.
Is the battery dangerous?
Like any lithium battery, this is a risk of failure. But, since the boxes are not connected to power inflight, are sealed in a safe compartment, and shutting down automatically when a threshold temperature is reached, our solution is considered as very safe by industry experts. Of course, the international regulations on use and transport of the batteries are met.
Are logistics and charging difficult?
The logistics process follows your regular duty free process. The boxes are usually transported by your catering / duty free partner. In their facilities the charging takes place.
How do AirFi batteries behave when AC is off for several days?
The AirFi Box will remain charged but will not receive the latest updates or be able to send data usage.
Can AirFi handle long haul flights?
Yes, the batteries have a capacity for 14-15 hours continuous operation.
Why are two AirFi boxes needed in the AC?
For narrow body aircraft 2 boxes are usually needed. 1 box is optimized for 50 pax. The signal is strong enough for the aircraft, but the passenger devices are usually not transmitting sufficiently to cover the range of the aircraft, especially full of passengers.
Can the AirFi batteries be charged on board?
Yes, this is possible, provided the aircraft is able to provide power at the right locations. Certification will take time and bear additional cost per aircraft type. If the boxes do not leave the aircraft updating can be done via GSM although the reliability and speed varies per location.
