Rajiv Gandhi International Airport in Hyderabad has become the first airport in India to introduce an entertainment-on-demand service for passengers.
The new service allows passengers to download media within three minutes and includes a wide range of blockbuster movies, TV shows and videos. Passengers are able to download content at fast speeds via a wi-fi hotspot available at the security hold area of the domestic terminal.
The new entertainment service has been developed in partnership with Fropcorn, a travel entertainment venture. Travelers simply download the Fropcorn app from the Google Play Store and then select from hundreds of movies available in multiple languages.
S G K Kishore, CEO, GHIAL, the airport operator, said, “At GHIAL, we strive to offer our flyers a stress free and enjoyable customer experience. We understand entertainment is a great way to keep them engaged on the flight as they have limited or no entertainment options. With Fropcorn entertainment hotspots, we now extend the GHIAL experience even beyond the airport premises and ensure our flyers have a great time throughout the journey.”
Kartik Bansal, co-founder and chief technical officer, Fropcorn, said, “We have been working closely with the GHIAL team to ensure our technology and the content catalog meet the demands of the new age traveler. 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.”
