Loftleiðir Icelandic to deploy Bluebox Portable Wireless Streaming on its exclusive VIP Boeing 757-200

Loftleiðir Icelandic, the charter and leasing arm of Icelandair, will deploy Bluebox’s portable wireless IFE platform on its exclusive Boeing 757-200 for VIP charter.

Arni Hermannson, Managing Director of Loftleiðir Icelandic said: “We take pride in delivering the best of the best to our VIP customers. What we found in Bluebox’s solution is an IFE platform that will deliver not just the best IFE service for them, but a solution that will work best for us – we just needed a system that works for everyone, and we’ve found that with Bluebox.”

“By selecting Bluebox for its VIP charter aircraft, Loftleiðir Icelandic has validated the quality and innovation of our platform on behalf of the most discriminating of customers – the VIP passenger,” said Kevin Clark, CEO, Bluebox. “The technology embedded in it – the Moving Map, app-free DRM content delivery, automatic updates via 3G/4G cellular – ensures Loftleiðir can deliver the most engaging and current IFE service to their customers.”

The interior Loftleiðir’s VIP charter is a 50-seat configuration with lie-flat sleeper seats from Avio interiors (Zeus). For longer-term assignments other configurations are available. Operation of the aircraft is ensured by Icelandair’s years of experience while the passengers enjoy our renowned hospitality and elegant service.

 

Bluebox’s portable wireless streaming platform provides content streamed to passenger devices in any aircraft cabin, providing the capability of storing up to 1.6 terabytes of film, TV, audio, games and other digital content, accessed through any web browser, including DRM content. With a remarkably low cost of ownership, it is a discrete, portable, lunchbox-sized unit. Stowed securely in overhead bins, each box’s single, swappable rechargeable battery delivers up to 15 hours of streamed video content to 50 passengers simultaneously.

 

Loftleiðir Icelandic is the charter and leasing company of the Icelandair Group. Icelandair has over 75 years of experience in aviation with a fleet of over 40 aircraft and the operation of over 20 around the world tours.
