flightPOS’ integration of the payment software with the W-IFE vendor of choice for the airline. flightPOS can provide the full W-IFE system through our partnering relationships, with the ability to go from concept to live in a month in most cases.
On their own devices, passengers pay for full access to the system or for individual digital content provided on the W-IFE. No crew intervention required, the passenger makes payment and flightPOS ensure that payment lands in the airline bank account.
Merchant accounts can be created, and APIs exist to integrate with specific acquirers if needed.
All the features of System 1 plus the ability to sell trolley stock or simply selected products.
Provision of the crew notification method allows the crew to be informed of orders placed once they are paid for. Crew can deliver the order to the seat with the option of editing the order. The products are managed so the passengers cannot order out of stock items.
For aircraft without W-IFE but with airline Wi-Fi, flightPOS can install a dockerised module allowing a sales platform for passengers to order and buy F&B on their own devices.
Crew notification device allows sales to be fulfilled. Full history of activities exists, multiple crew devices are supported, only one crew member can claim an order to fulfill ensuring smooth operations onboard.
