Bluebox IFE upgraded on TCS World Travel Boeing 757 flights

TCS World Travel, which offers luxury tours on a Boeing 757 operated by TAG Aviation, has upgraded the Bluebox Ai IFE system on the aircraft, deployed in April 2017, to Bluebox Hybrid, the connected version of the system. Bluebox Hybrid delivers pre-loaded early window content (EWC) in a wireless cabin, viewed on iPads.

“We provide our guests with unique, highly personalized journeys around the world, and with internet connectivity now installed on one of our aircraft, we’re able to do even more to enrich their experience while in the air,” said Shelley Cline, president, TCS World Travel.

“This goes beyond keeping our guests entertained or connected, but allows us to offer innovative ways to educate them about their next destination, such as live presentations from travel experts broadcast to our Bluebox Hybrid iPads.”

“With Bluebox Ai, we delivered the IFE quality and the ‘it just works’ simplicity TCS World Travel wanted, but we also knew we could grow with them when they were ready to offer full internet connectivity,” said David Brown, business development director, Bluebox Aviation Systems.

“It’s what Bluebox Hybrid is all about – providing the security studios demand for EWC but offering connectivity as well, whether via a local/in-aircraft wi-fi network or to the wider internet if an aircraft has a satcom system installed, as TCS World Travel has just done.”

Rockwell Collins’s CabinConnect, which uses Inmarsat’s GX Aviation service, was recently installed on the Boeing 757.
