Bluebox Portable IFE Joining TCS World Travel on its Adventures of a Lifetime
04 April 2017
Bluebox Aviation System’s portable inflight entertainment (IFE) solution – Bluebox Ai – has been selected by TCS World Travel, a leading private jet tour operator based in North America, to deliver entertainment and curated educational content on its luxury private jet journeys.

TCS is deploying Bluebox-configured iPads as the primary IFE system on the company’s three Boeing 757 aircraft, with the potential to use some devices on its seasonal charter operation as well. TCS’s Boeing 757s are customized for every journey, taking up to 80 guests on unique itineraries visiting the world’s most iconic destinations.

“We take our travellers on incredible journeys around the world, and offer them luxurious comfort, style and convenience,” said Shelley Cline, President, TCS World Travel.  “Bluebox impressed us with an IFE solution that fits with that ethos – the very best delivery of convenience and high value. That’s what our travellers expect from us, and in Bluebox we’ve found an IFE solution partner that delivers the same.”

“We were exceptionally pleased to learn that it was our reputation for quality and innovation that helped get the conversation started with TCS,” said David Brown, Business Development Director, Bluebox Aviation Systems Ltd. “But we were even more pleased that Bluebox Ai proved the right fit for their needs, as what they were looking for is what we always strive to deliver to all of our customers – great technology that’s fit-for-purpose and simple to deploy.”

Airlines and travel companies around the world are looking for new ways to deliver outstanding services to passengers whose expectations are much greater in terms of technology and content. Bluebox’s use of commercial off-the-shelf devices delivers on these expectations and provides a more cost-effective IFE option than traditional fitted seatback systems.

Bluebox Ai will take its maiden voyage with TCS World Travel on the “Kingdoms and Cultures of Eurasia” expedition departing from Lisbon, Portugal on 20 April 2017. With Bluebox Ai, TCS will provide all 50 travellers with the latest iPad technology pre-loaded with films, TV programmes, destination maps and other curated educational content related to their 22-day itinerary. The expedition includes visits to Portugal, Lithuania, Kyrgyzstan, Turkmenistan, Kazakhstan, Oman, Albania, Romania, and France.
