Interactive Mobility has enhanced its Flymingo portable W-IFE solution, with the introduction of an automatic Passenger Announcement pause function.
The feature allows to pause the IFE streaming system for PA announcements without crew or pilot intervention.
Using proprietary technology available on any Flymingo box connected to the aircraft electrical network, the solution works by picking up signals from the passenger announcement system.
“This is a long awaited product feature. Airlines came to us because they wanted a fully automatized way to comply with passenger announcement regulations. Flymingo Box now enables our customers to address safety standards while offering streaming for up to 100 passengers” said Tanguy Morel, CEO at Interactive Mobility.
“Flymingo is a hassle-free IFE solution which improves both passenger and crew experience on board” added Morel.
Flymingo Box can be entirely monitored via a dedicated mobile application. Crew members can access a dashboard on their electronic device to oversee and control the service. The application allows for example flight attendants to view the Wi-Fi status, check the number of connected devices, and even receive orders.
Flymingo Crew Application is available on any electronic device, and has an Apple Watch version.
Interactive Mobility was selected to provide this new featured IFE equipment to four European airlines. Flymingo Box will be installed on thirty A320 and A321 aircrafts by mid-2019.
