Moment, a French company specialising in digital services for the air transport industry, has been selected by Hans Airways, the new UK start up carrier, to supply its portable IFE system for onboard entertainment.

Moment’s Flymingo box will be fitted aboard its first Airbus A330-200 ahead of the company’s revenue operations.

Hans Airways is a privately-owned UK start-up, originally founded in October 2019. It is a hybrid, long-haul model which intends to operate from the UK’s Birmingham Airport to India, initially serving the Indian diaspora’s needs in Europe – then moving on to North America.

IFEC options

Through the portable W-IFE solution Flymingo Box, Hans Airways’ passengers will be able to connect with a variety of premium content, including films, TV shows, infotainment or games streamed directly from passengers’ own devices.

Flymingo presents a compact and powerful server. As an autonomous solution, Flymingo Box adapts to non-connected environments and does not require any additional connectivity, operating with its own Wi-Fi network.

Hans Airways is progressing with its plans to commence scheduled services later this year. Its aircraft feature a cabin layout of 275 economy and 24 premium economy seats.
