MEKCO Group Secures Americas' Distributorship for AirFi IFEC Systems
MEKCO Group announces it has been named the North/South American distributor for AirFi’s in-flight entertainment and communications system (IFEC) and will operate as AirFi America Inc. Additionally, the company announces Eastern Airlines as its launch customer. Eastern Airlines will have the AirFi system installed in its entire fleet of Boeing 767s and 777s.
“I am delighted to announce that Eastern Airlines is our first client with our newly established AirFi partnership. Eastern will be deploying the latest, zero-touch AirFi FASE system, which further reduces virus-transmission touchpoints for crew and passengers throughout the flight,” says Bill Utset, AirFi America Inc. president.
“We are thrilled with the AirFi speed and efficiency of the wireless IFEC and rollout across our entire fleet. Our first AirFi FASE aircraft was outfitted during its regular two-day check,” says Steve Harfst, president and CEO, Eastern Airlines.
AirFi Aero is the largest provider of flexible wireless IFEC systems, powering more than half of the aircraft flying today and growing in five years to become the fourth largest global wireless IFEC OEM overall.
