Innofly, a provider of digital ancillary business opportunities for Korean carriers, has deployed in-flight entertainment for Eastar Jet, T’way Air and Asiana Airlines subsidiary Air Busan, using the AirFi platform. Having launched simultaneously with the three carriers in August 2018, Innofly is now also in final negotiations with Korean Air subsidiary Jin Air.
“Every airline in Korea is determined to offer their passengers great movies and television shows, music, travel information and shopping opportunities,” said Sang Hyuk Lee, CEO of InnoFly. “Free content is supported by advertisements, while there are also options to pay for content and products.”
AirFi has also secured global distribution rights for Dance 24, adding audio and video content from the electronic dance music (EDM) scene to its in-flight entertainment catalog. Passengers will be able to see live streams and recordings of DJ sets, documentaries, interviews and more, from international festivals like Ultra, Mysteryland and Awakenings, featuring DJs such as Armin van Buuren, Tiesto and David Guetta.
“We are hugely excited to have the exclusive rights for the travel industry to bring these mega dance music events to the world’s travelers,” said Martin Cunnison, CCO at AirFi. “At the same time we’ve removed all the uncertainty of music streaming licenses as DANCE 24 is 100% rights cleared.”
