The Weather Network, and its European counterpart El Tiempo, will for the first time take-off their weather services onboard Immfly’s digital service platform, operative onboard several short and long-haul airlines, after both companies have partnered to offer passengers real-time weather conditions of over 100 destinations.
In line with Immfly’s ambition to work with best in class content suppliers that guarantee quality onboard services, the company has recently announced a new partnership with The Weather Network to provide passengers with live weather updates while in-flight. Starting from July 2017 passengers onboard XL Airways, Volotea, Iberia Express and upcoming clients, will be able to view their destination’s real-time meteorological conditions along with a 7 day forecast.
Available now, the Your Destination section of Immfly’s platform, which includes activities, transfer services and travel tips among others, will extend its offering to embrace the weather report, hence providing users an 360º overview of their destination. Integrated with Immfly’s white labeled channels, The Weather Network’s and El Tiempo’s digital content performs seamlessly across devices creating an informational user-friendly section available in several languages.
“We are very excited to bring our company’s on board services one step further with the offering of this new channel hand in hand with a well-known worldwide provider, The Weather Network,” states Martina de Santis, Key Account Manager at Immfly. “Our focus lies on continuously building projects around technological and content innovations that keep us and our airline clients ahead in the market, in order to reassure that we offer passengers a unique and wide-ranging digital experience.”
Carlos Astorqui, Managing Director for El Tiempo added “Travel and weather go hand in hand, there’s certainly a need for weather information on this platform and we’re delighted to offer travellers an up to date, accurate forecast while in the air. It’s important that we’re able to provide forecasts and deliver content whenever it’s needed and Immfly’s network has allowed us to do this. It truly is your weather when it really matters. We will be working closely with Immfly in the coming months to further develop this partnership.”
