Corendon Dutch Airlines selects Arconics for Wireless IFE platform and content

Arconics are delighted to announce that Corendon Dutch Airlines has selected the company’s CloudStore Wireless IFE platform for installation on its B737-800 aircraft, which will enter passenger service in Q1 2015.

CloudStore streams content, retail and advertising to passengers’ own mobile devices, and is the first IFE platform designed to drive engagement and ancillary revenues over the entire passenger journey. It allows the airline to understand customer behaviour and refine and customize the offering in real time. The CloudStore Content Management System does away with traditional IFE media integration timelines and costs, allowing airlines to take realtime control of their IFE platform and create new ancillary revenue streams before, during and after the flight.

Founder of the Corendon Group, Atilay Uslu says: ‘
Our immediate goal with the IFE program is to enhance the passenger experience, but over time we expect to create new ancillary revenues. We did a comprehensive evaluation of the various IFE systems on the market, and CloudStore stood out. It gives us a one-stop-shop for the core IFE features, and allows us to add payments, e-commerce, and new retail partnerships when we need them. Equally importantly, Arconics demonstrated the ability to work with our internal technology team to deliver a system that perfectly meets our requirements. Over the coming years, CloudStore will enable us to serve our customers better and increase our ancillary revenues through innovative new offerings.’

Arconics will provide a turnkey solution for Corendon Dutch Airlines, including the software platform, mobile apps, and content licensing and encoding. Content for the go-live system will include Hollywood and Dutch movies, television shows, music, moving map, and destination content for the guests of Corendon Dutch Airlines.

Of the partnership, Arconics CEO Niall O’Sullivan said: ‘
We’re thrilled that Corendon Dutch Airlines has selected CloudStore to power its wireless IFE product. CloudStore is a few steps ahead of the game; it’s a powerful platform for engagement and ancillary revenue that puts the airline in full control. It’s hardware agnostic, flexible like no other IFE system we’ve seen and affordable too – it’s win-win – and we’re looking forward to seeing the benefits flow through to Corendon Dutch Airlines and their customers.’
