Jambojet, Kenya’s low-cost carrier on Wednesday said it has introduced a complimentary in-flight entertainment (IFE) system that can be accessed by passengers on any of their personal hand-held devices.
In an emailed statement, the airline said the passengers can also use Jambojet Destination Explorer to make the most out of their travel experience.
This includes exclusive offers, rewards, and dynamic maps for the most attractive destinations on its portfolio.
“Passengers spend an average of 1 hour on the flight. The in-flight entertainment system will feature Jambojet Destination Explorer and also have videos, games, and reading material to keep them entertained, informed and engaged during the flight. The in-flight entertainment service also offers an opportunity for corporates and other potential advertisers to promote their goods and services on the platform through video or static image placement,” said Karanja Ndegwa, Managing Director and CEO, Jambojet.
Commenting on the partnership, Global Onboard Partners CEO Kirk Adams said, “Our innovative platform has been designed to provide a win-win for everyone through the delivery of destination experiences and special offers to passengers, through important new revenue streams to airlines.”
