IMMFLY’s Best-In-Class Connected Digital Services Platform Arrives to AILA Lounges
25 June 2019
The Immfly Lounge service is part of a unique customer journey platform Immfly provides airports and airlines. It is designed to enable seamless extension of the customer experience end-to-end: from lounge, to gate, to inflight and post arrival. The Immfly Lounge service is now available in one of the largest airports in the Carribean, serving VIP lounges in Santo Domingo’s AILA airport (Aeropuerto Internacional Las Américas). AILA handles 3.5 million customers annually and the airport’s top 10 routes include direct flights to hubs in the USA, Europe and South America served by carriers including American Airlines, Iberia, Delta, Avianca, Spirit, Air Europa, Jet Blue and United Airlines.
Immfly uses proprietary state-of-the-art wireless infrastructure to provide unrivalled digital entertainment streaming speeds paired with customised services for premium airline passengers visiting the lounge.
To deliver a seamless end-to-end journey, Airlines and Lounges can choose to extend Immfly’s service to any designated pre-boarding area, to the inflight experience and even the post flight segment. Moreover, optional features such as managed web services, ensure customers can access information related to content they will be able to enjoy, prior to arrival at the airport. e.g In a service Immfly provides Iberia Express customers are made aware which Game of Thrones episodes they will be able to enjoy prior to travelling via web content managed by Immfly.
The content made available to lounge customers is also best-in-class in terms of breadth and quality. Beyond new movie releases, Immfly enables lounges and airlines to provide customers a portfolio of top tv shows, best-selling audiobooks and e-books, podcasts, games, music, press & magazines, destination guides, newsfeeds, kids content in addition to specially customised modules Immfly develops for its lounge partners e.g unlocking shopping opportunities, offering tactical upgrades and other services available in using the platform as a communication channel.

Immfly Lounge’s proposition to airline and airport clients focuses on its 3 pillars: Enhanced Customer Experience, Increased Revenues and Reduced Operational Costs.
