fflya is a game changer
New York, NY (PRWEB) October 21, 2016
AS-IP Tech, Inc. (OTCMKTS: IPTK) announced today that fflya, the world’s first Bluetooth Smart airline connectivity solution, has been commissioned on an A340.
fflya is an inflight connectivity revolution that provides free app messaging and destination savings that will enhance the passenger’s flight experience and allow the airline to earn revenue without having to charge.
fflya substantially reduces equipment costs and eliminates the high cost of satellite transmission by combining a proprietary satellite protocol with a Bluetooth Smart network capable of connecting every passenger on-board with a single Bluetooth hotspot.
Company CEO Ron Chapman said, “fflya is a game changer because until now airlines have had only two expensive ways to connect via satellite in an aircraft – a proprietary link for the cockpit and Wi-Fi for the cabin. On the ground people are communicating more than ever using apps, with the common belief that messaging is free. fflya now meets this societal expectation in the air by delivering free app messaging and more for passengers.”
fflya provides value-added services that allow the airline to promote its brand, extend the digital reach and generate revenue in a way never seen before.
Significantly, airlines can test the unique fflya platform without any modification to the aircraft. fflya is a self-contained portable system including Satcom and custom window antenna that classifies as a carry-on device so there is no aircraft certification required.
