French company SKYdeals has joined the LVMH Group Startups Acceleration Programme, effective 5 September.
The programme, based in the Station F campus in Paris, facilitates access to all LVMH brands (Kenzo, Givenchy and Guerlain etc) in order to test new solutions or launch innovative projects.
Launched in January 2019 on all Air France connected flights, SKYdeals aims to reinvent travel retail through onboard connectivity (inflight wi-fi). The SKYdeals platform allows brands to promote preferential offers to passengers in the air which are connected to the internet.
The company has signed agreements with 60 brands and is available on long-haul, short-haul and medium-haul flights. Passengers can have products delivered to their home or can collect items on arrival at their destination airport.
Julien Sivan, Co-Founder and CEO, SKYdeals said: “We are very proud and delighted to be part of the LVMH La Maison des Startups programme. We look forward to taking advantage of this opportunity to significantly increase the number of partner brands, particularly in the luxury industry.”
SKYdeals will once again exhibit at the TFWA Innovation Lab in Cannes. TRBusiness is the first travel retail specialised media to sign up as sponsor for the new TFWA concept.
