Talk about a cloud-based solution. MI Group has secured a €1.3 Million investment to further develop AirFi, their successful onboard WiFi solution for airlines. The investment comes from Mainport Innovation Fund II, which consists of powerful aviation partners like KLM Airlines and Schiphol Group. The €1.3 Million is part of a third financing round of €7.5 Million that AirFi is currently trying to establish. Another €5 Million in listed bonds should be finalised by the middle of the month.
MI Group first took off in 2010 with their digital information solution MI Airline. Their Connected Crew service increased onboard sales and crew productivity by connecting tablets of crewmembers. The success of Connected Crew then led to the development of AirFi, an onboard WiFi solution for passengers.
