Allegiant Air to Offer Row 44 IFE
Allegiant Air will offer the Row 44 video-on-demand (VOD) service on its fleet of 757s, as part of a new partnership with the in-flight entertainment (IFE) provider.
Row 44 said Allegiant will offer its wireless in-flight video streaming only service, which operates without satellite connectivity directly on passengers’ iPad, iPhone, Android and other Wi-Fi-enabled devices. The VOD entertainment content is stored aboard the aircraft on a 1.8 terabyte server, and does not offer the Row 44 satellite Internet service.
"Allegiant has proven adept at pioneering and delivering innovative solutions in the travel marketplace," said Travis Christ, chief marketing and sales officer for Row 44. "Allegiant is a low cost specialist when it comes to linking leisure travelers to popular destinations, and we look forward to complementing their brand with a world-class VOD entertainment experience."
Row 44 will begin installations of its VOD service on the Allegiant Air fleet of Boeing 757s in the first quarter of 2013.
