Posted 11 April 2018 · Add Comment

ATR has announced Gabon-based carrier Afrijet as the launch customer of Cabinstream, a new wireless In-Flight Entertainment (IFE) solution developed by Phitek.

The airline will introduce this new streaming system into its fleet of ATR aircraft before the end of the year.

Cabinstream allows passengers to enhance their onboard experience by accessing a variety of multimedia content on their personal electronic devices, such as newspapers, music, films, TV series and even downloadable travel guides. Representing a simple IFE box solution that is easy to install, Cabinstream is an option on all new ATRs and easily retrofittable on existing aircraft.
 
Marc Gaffajoli, Chief Executive Officer of Afrijet said: “We are pleased to be the launch customer for Cabinstream. Being able to offer an even better onboard experience to our passengers is a key reason for us in choosing this option. We are looking forward to providing great, innovative and easily accessible content. We are proud to show that Africa is a land of innovation.”
 
Chris van der Loo, Director of Marketing at Phitek said: “We welcome Afrijet as the first ATR operator to benefit from the advantages of our Cabinstream system. It enhances the in-flight experience by delivering rich content to passengers whilst opening up new advertising revenue possibilities for operators.”
 
Zuzana Hrnkova, ATR’s Vice President Marketing stated “This is a further example of how ATR’s culture of continuous development has real and tangible benefits for both passengers and operators. The deal between Afrijet and Phitek introduces another high-tech solution into the ATR cabin.”
 
In 14 years Afrijet has become one of the principal aviation group in Central Africa. Afrijet is notably operating a fleet of 5 ATR (3 ATR 72-500, 2 ATR 42-500), serving mainly a corporate market and paying particular attention to on board products and services. Based, in Libreville, Gabon, Afrijet has the values of the African and European continents. From Europe, the company has rigour and quality of service.
