Sky-High Shopping Goes Digital: The Perks of a Web-Based Platform

At SKYdeals, we've embraced a web-based platform for our Inflight Shoppertainment, bringing a world of benefits for airlines and passengers alike.

With no need for onboard installation, integration is seamless and cost-effective. Updates are quick and easy, ensuring the platform stays current and competitive.
Our web-based solution allows us to continuously innovate and launch new Inflight Shoppertainment features like Flying Auctions and Flash Sales, requiring real-time updates for an engaging experience. Plus, we can regularly roll out exciting promotions and events, keeping the in-flight shopping experience fresh and captivating.



SKYdeals is built on a headless e-commerce architecture, which provides greater flexibility and scalability. This allows the platform to easily connect with various external solutions, such as loyalty programs, payment gateways, chauffeur reservation services, or brand inventory systems.


The platform’s API-driven architecture enables seamless integration with various airline systems, including in-flight entertainment systems, connectivity providers, and more. This ensures a smooth and hassle-free onboarding process for airlines.

SKYdeals runs on Vendure, a high-performance Node.js-based e-commerce server, for its backend. This ensures speedy and efficient performance, essential for delivering an exceptional in-flight shopping experience.​

The platform’s frontend utilizes Nuxt.js, a popular Vue.js framework, and Vue Storefront, offering a highly performant and user-friendly interface. This ensures optimal user experience, especially in environments with slow internet connections, such as on board airplanes.
