Jet Airways of India has become the first customer for the wireless Air Cities from Global Eagle Entertainment which brings trusted content from the world’s largest travel site, TripAdvisor – without the need for internet access or a seatback screen.
“Every passenger wants the world at his or her fingertips, and Global Eagle is constantly seeking innovative products to satisfy the rising demand for unique content onboard,” said Global Eagle CEO Josh Marks.
Global Eagle’s Air Cities service provides destination guides that are curated from content supplied by TripAdvisor. This includes points of interest within specific categories, such as accommodation, restaurants, and experiences. Passengers will see locations that are top-rated by global travellers, photos, and reviews. No internet connection will be needed to view the content.
“Air Cities is part of an expansive product offering for airlines to offer passengers,” said Marks. “Global Eagle offers the leading movie, TV, music and gaming content in the industry, as well as flight tracking, education and other options, with advertising and sponsorship opportunities that generate revenue.”
