Transavia teams up with Piksel for better in-flight entertainment
Transavia is teaming up with Piksel, a global leader in video services, to provide travelers with better in-flight entertainment, the airline announced earlier this week. Transavia will be the first customer to make use of the Piksel Voyage to power the airline's Transavia Entertainment App. Transavia travelers will be able to select and download a broad range of TV shows and movies onto their own personal devices, such as smartphones and tablets, before boarding a flight. The content will only be available during the flight time window, which adds 2 hours extra to account for delays. Once the flight window time window is closed, the content will automatically be deleted from the device, to avoid any potential licensing issues. The app took four months to develop and was launched in April. By using this app, Transavia is cutting out the high costs of installing expensive infrastructures on their planes to deliver video, while at the same time offering its passengers better quality viewing experiences by using the high quality screens found on user devices.. "The way people consume media has changed rapidly in recent years, and the airline industry needs to reflect his in its in-flight entertainment systems." Roy Scheerder, Chief Commercial Officer at Transavia said in the press release. "Working with Piksel demonstrates Transavia's leadership in Europe as the premiere affordable airline in hospitality service and digital; choosing to go the extra mile for our passengers."
