RJ launches new inflight entertainment streaming technology

Amman, May 26 (Petra) -- Royal Jordanian (RJ) launched a new state-of-the-art technology offering passengers a wireless inflight entertainment (IFE) system onboard the airline’s four Airbus A319 and six A320 aircraft.

In a statement on Sunday, RJ said the new IFE service, which is provided by Bluebox Aviation Systems, is deployed on the Bluebox Wow portable wireless IFE system.

This solution provides wireless content streamed to passengers’ personal devices on both Crown and Economy classes.

To be able to view a wide range of films, TV programs, games, airline info and audio, passengers need to download the 'Sky Connect' app on their personal devices from Apple Store or Google Play prior to their flight departure.

This will enable them to stream IFE content provided by RJ for free on their personal devices (smartphones, laptops and tablets).

'We are delighted that Royal Jordanian has chosen Bluebox Wow,' said Bluebox CEO Kevin Clark. 'Both the technological innovation and the deployment model of Bluebox Wow make Royal Jordanian and its fleet of A319s and A320s a natural fit for Bluebox Wow.'

He said the solution engages passengers with a variety of IFE content and offers airlines a flexible solution to the upgrade/retrofit question.
