Shannon based InflightFlix International Ltd announced an major inflight entertainment (IFE) destination content deal with Aer Lingus. This agreement follows an initial partnership from 2018 where InflightFlix produced Wild Atlantic Way and Dublin video guides for Aer Lingus.

InflightFlix will promote 500 reasons to visit Ireland listing 10 reasons to visit each of the 32 counties and 50 things to do, and places to stay and shop in each of the cities of Dublin, Belfast, Cork and Galway.

According to InflightFlix, 200 small Irish tourism businesses have previously signed up. The new affordable platform provides access to airline inflight entertainment systems, which were previously unattainable on smaller budgets.

This summer Aer Lingus has a record number of 2.25 million seats on sale to North America in Summer 2023 operating 15 routes, , making it its largest North American summer schedule to date.

InflightFlix CEO, Martin O’Regan, said “This is a unique opportunity for 10 tourism businesses in each county to get in front of North American passengers pre arrival at an affordable price.
