Cobalt Air, a Cyprus airline, enhances its onboard experience for all its passengers with the introduction of in-flight entertainment (IFE) across its Airbus A319 and A320 fleet via portable wireless IFE platform, Bluebox Wow. Cabin crew training is complete in readiness for the system to go live across Cobalt’s route network.

Bluebox Wow, from Bluebox Aviation Systems Ltd. in Scotland, delivers wireless media content streamed to passengers’ own devices, including phones, laptops and tablets. It is a discrete, portable, lunchbox-sized unit. Each box’s single, swappable rechargeable battery can deliver up to 15 hours of streamed video content.

Cobalt passengers can enjoy movies and TV shows, with music, games and magazines to follow later, all accessed simply through a web browser.  

Cobalt Air has specified three Bluebox Wow boxes per aircraft, which are conveniently secured in overhead lockers, ensuring that every passenger can access IFE content throughout their flight.

“We are very pleased to be offering inflight entertainment on board our flights now, just ahead of the peak summer and family holidays,” says Cobalt Air CEO, Andrew Madar.  “From the outset we were clear that we didn’t want to have any disruption to our extremely busy fleet that a fitted system would incur. This solution from Bluebox was ideal for us—affordable and excellent quality—just like us. All our cabin crew have to do is turn it on and swap batteries when required. Families always travel with multiple devices so we are making sure that every passenger can access our movies and tv shows.”

“As Cobalt Air is an airline committed to offering its passengers exceptional service, we’re thrilled to be part of this latest enhancement on board,” says Kevin Clark, CEO of Bluebox Aviation Systems. “We’re delighted that Bluebox Wow will be engaging Cobalt passengers throughout the peak holiday season and beyond.”
