Hyderabad International Airport has launched entertainment-on-demand service
Hyderabad: The GMR Hyderabad International Airport Ltd (GHIAL) has launched entertainment-on-demand service at Rajiv Gandhi International Airport (RGIA) in the city, thereby becoming first airport in the country to offer such a service which allows passenger to download movies in a span of three minutes.
With this, passengers have the freedom to download a wide range of blockbuster movies, TV shows and videos at the terminal at hyper fast speeds without needing any internet or data connection.
GHIAl has roped in Fropcorn, a travel entertainment venture, to offer the entertainment WiFi hotspot which is currently available at the security hold area of the domestic terminal. However, the airport has plans to soon extend it to other parts of the airport.
Fropcorn’s WiFi-enabled media servers create a secure hotspot that allows passengers to download a complete movie within three minutes. This can be done by downloading Fropcorn App from Google Play Store.
Flyers can connect their devices to the Airport Movie WiFi available at the terminal and download the movies via the Fropcorn App. Once downloaded, the movies can be viewed at leisure during the flight duration.
The content catalogue includes 100s of high quality movies across multiple genres and languages. “We understand entertainment is a great way to keep flyers engaged on the flight journey as they have limited or no entertainment options.
With Fropcorn entertainment hotspot, we now extend the GHIAL experience even beyond the airport premises and ensure our flyers have a great time throughout the journey,” said SGK Kishore, CEO, GHIAL.
We expect this to be a wow experience for both the flyers and the airlines and shall further augment Hyderabad airport's status as a preferred gateway for South and Central India, he added.
Kartik Bansal, Co-Founder & CTO, Fropcorn, said that company had been working closely with the GHIAL team to ensure its technology and the content catalogue met the demands of the new age traveller.
“We are extremely excited to launch this service in partnership with GHIAL and will be releasing multiple product features and engaging content to keep the service exciting for the airport passengers,” he added.
