Fleet-wide In-Flight Entertainment enhancement aboard expanding Cyprus carrier’s Airbus A320/A319 fleet.

Larnaca, Cyprus– Cobalt Air, Cyprus’ expanding airline has enhanced its onboard experience for all its passengers with the introduction of  Bluebox’s portable wireless IFE platform – Bluebox Wow – across its Airbus A319 and A320 fleet.   Cabin crew training was completed last week in readiness for the system to go live this week, across Cobalt’s route network.

Bluebox Wow, from BlueBox Aviation Ltd in Scotland, delivers wireless media content streamed to passengers’ own devices - to phones, laptops, tablets and even Kindles.

At launch Cobalt passengers can enjoy Movies,  TV shows and other digital content including WatchMojo – the big trend with young flyers, accessed simply through the web browser.   

Cobalt Air has specified three Bluebox Wow boxes per aircraft, which are conveniently secured in overhead lockers, ensuring that every passenger can access inflight entertainment throughout the flight.

Bluebox Wow is a discrete, portable, lunchbox-sized unit.  Each box’s single, swappable rechargeable battery can deliver up to 15 hours of streamed video content. 

“We are very pleased to be offering inflight entertainment on board our flights now,  just ahead of the peak summer and family holidays,” said Cobalt Air CEO Andrew Madar.  “From the outset we were clear that we didn’t want to have any disruption to our extremely busy fleet that a fitted system would incur.  This easy to install solution from Bluebox was ideal for us – affordable and excellent quality – just like us.   All our cabin crew have to do is turn it on and charge it when required.   Families always travel with multiple devices so we are making sure that every passenger can access our movies and tv shows.”

 “We are delighted to be playing a part in widening out the appeal of flying Cobalt Air,” said Kevin Clark, CEO of Bluebox Aviation Aviation Systems.  We are delighted to welcome this terrific forward-thinking airline to our growing customer base and are very pleased they have opted for Bluebox Wow, an exceptional and award-winning product we are all so very proud of.”
