IFD Detector

Our IFD Detector monitors the processes running on passenger devices and can identify screen capture tools. In cases where a user attempts to screen capture or record media, the streamed media is automatically stopped and passengers are notified to cease the capture process. IFD Detector also prevents the streaming of media to devices that are jail-broken or have HDMI, DVI or display port peripherals connected.

IFD Reporter

IFD Reporter analyses all passenger interactions and provides detailed usage reports to the relevant ontent and service owners. The reports contain a range of valuable data on activities such as page visits, time spent on each page, device type used and any fraudulent attempts captured by the IFD Detector. These data points and reports can be customised to your needs and be used to expand your passenger profiles and enhance your contextual marketing initiatives.

Inflight Retail

With the introduction of wireless IFE, promoting and upselling your inflight sales is easier than ever. By introducing an eCommerce platform that passengers can access at their leisure, the opportunity to upsell increases considerably. Also, by widening and extending the window during which passengers can purchase snacks and duty free, airlines can increase the total volume of transactions on a given flight.

By delivering inflight retail through your wireless IFE portal, and by linking into or utilising stock management systems, you will have real time data and information on stock levels and availability at the flight crew’s fingertips, improving logistics and efficiencies. The availability of this data also creates other inflight retail opportunities such as dynamic pricing and discounts, even the bundling of inflight retail with other services such as content provision.

Your wireless IFE portal can also be used as a platform for launching retail offerings not traditionally available at 30,000 feet. See our Ancillary Revenue section below for more information on these additional retail offerings.


Ancillary Revenue

Inflight Dublin’s partnerships with globally recognised car hire, hotel, events and tourism brands opens up new ancillary revenue opportunities for airlines. Similarly, if you already have agreements in place with 3rd party service providers, we can work with them to incorporate their offerings through your wireless IFE portal, introducing a new channel with which to offer these services.

Advertising and Sponsorship

We have also partnered with global digital advertising agencies to get big name brands onto your aircraft. Through our portal management and data analytics solution you can target individual passengers more effectively, maximising advertising revenue.

Extending your ancillary Revenue Reach

Inflight Dublin will also design, build and manage a custom mobile application so that passengers can avail of these additional ancillary revenue generation services while they spend time at their destination. This will allow you to continue to generate ancillary revenue after the passenger has disembarked the aircraft.

Enhance the Passenger Experience

As well as increasing ancillary revenue, the introduction of these new services can enhance the passenger’s experience with your airline and improve passenger engagement. Some airlines in fact offer free informative content to improve passenger engagement such as 3D moving maps, destination information, airport information and also use the portal as a cost effective way to share airline inflight magazines.

As well as increasing ancillary revenue, these new services will enhance the passenger’s experience with your airline and improve overall engagement. Our dynamic package includes other attention-grabbing features at no extra cost to the passenger, such as 3D moving maps, destination information, and airport information. The IFE portal is also a cost-effective way to share airline inflight magazines.
