Shackleton investee Bluebox has walked away with another prize – this time at the Inflight Middle East event in Dubai.

The In Flight Entertainment (IFE) vendor was cited for demonstrating an ongoing and sustained commitment to delivering best practice, while showing a creative and innovative approach to in-flight entertainment hardware.  Bluebox’s portable wireless deployment with Jazeera, along other carriers around the world, and the company’s award-winning innovation in accessible IFE were all cited as reasons for the win.

Originally shortlisted for the award along with Panasonic, Thales and Zodiac Inflight Innovations – the win delighted Mark Stevens, Sales Director, EMEA, who accepted the award on behalf of Bluebox.

This year’s system provider award marks the third time Bluebox has won an Inflight Award – the first was the ‘Best Handheld IFE System’ in 2014 for Bluebox Ai, the company’s portable iPad-based IFE platform, and in 2017 Bluebox won the ‘Handheld and/or Wireless IFE System’ award for its Bluebox Wow portable wireless IFE platform.
