Inflight Dublin partners with American-French company SkyLights to deliver new generation IFE experience!

Today, Inflight Dublin announced a strategic collaboration with American-French company SkyLights, which leverages VR headset technology to offer premium passengers a fully immersive cinematic experience.

This pioneering entertainment solution corresponds to the latest IFE trends, which seek to use technical innovation to unlock a new era of onboard entertainment.  

The SkyLights experience is the equivalent of watching 2D, 3D and 180° films and series in a private movie theatre. The signature solution, which covers everything from content licencing to servicing, has been deployed onboard 700 + flights, with 4 hours average use time and 90% recommendation rates. With such strong results it is clear SkyLights offers airlines several benefits:

  • Improve the NPS of their premium guests
  • Differentiate how passengers feel with a unique and memorable journey
  • Boost the airline’s brand by certifying it as an industry pioneer
  • Let passengers enjoy a cinematic experience with a choice of early window content available in different formats

Inflight Dublin will provide SkyLights with award-winning international content from their extensive film catalogue. The combined content will come in 2D, 3D or 180 °  and can be fully branded for the airline.

“We are excited about this innovative IFE solution. This partnership underlines our commitment to continuous development of the passenger experience.  Our extensive international content collection certainly adds value to SkyLights’s technology. This is yet another great example how tech trends are being deployed in aviation market and we are proud to be part of it”, said John White, Inflight Dublin’s CEO.
