The best entertainment on a flight in or out of Paro, Bhutan arguably comes from the majestic Himalayan mountains just outside. But travelers looking for a bit more on board now have another option, as Bhutan Airlines launches its new streaming entertainment platform, in partnership with AirFi.
Passengers on all Bhutan Airlines flights now have access to watch Hollywood and regional film, television series, and documentary content on their personal device while en route. As with most airlines, the moving map offering is proving to be the most popular content for travelers.
Pema N. Nadik, Chief Executive Officer of Bhutan Airlines, describes the new solution as part of the carrier’s “ongoing efforts to improve our services and provide our customers with the highest level of comfort and convenience.”
AirFi CEO Job Heimerikx notes the implementation has room to grow, particularly around inflight sales opportunities, “When Bhutan Airlines is ready add new features to the IFE offering or wished to boost ancillary revenues from onboard sales, we will be ready with flexible, tailor-made options.”
Bhutan Airlines is the country’s first private airline. It currently operates two A319s, with daily service between Paro and Bangkok via Kolkata and thrice weekly service to Delhi via Kathmandu.
