Using Everhub SmartWings passengers in Czechia, France, Hungary, Poland and Slovakia, Poland, Hungary, France will soon enjoy streaming content on the airline’s complete fleet.
In the initial phase, Inflight Dublin will be offering the latest content, including movies, TV, audio, games, magazines and newspapers, provided in different languages. The second phase will include the roll-out of the extended service offering beyond content such as destination services, ground transportation services and retail services.
Peter Sujan, Travel Service’s sales director, said, “This revolutionary wireless IFE system comes at the right time for Travel Service, who are dedicated to boosting passenger experience to the new level. We are delighted that Travel Service is one of the first Central European airlines that offers this service to its passengers.

John White, Inflight Dublin’s CEO, added, “This is our first Everhub partnership in the Central Europe and we couldn’t be more excited! Travel Service’s continuous dedication to elevating passenger experience sits accordingly with our strategic vision on bringing IFE to every airborne passenger.”
