Jetairfly wins with digEcor?s new product release

14th July 2009 - 11:03 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Long time digEcor customer Jetairfly is to retire its digEplayer 5500s and replace them with new digEplayer XLPs, the first deal for the newly released model.

With its three year contract expiring, Jetairfly needed a new device to handle longer flight times without significant costs to acquire the system. Jetairfly IFE manager Emmanuel Van Damme commented, “The digEplayer XLP was the perfect combination of extended battery life, aesthetic appeal, and price. Flying on several 767-300s, the new programme will launch later this month and is substantially larger than the discontinued 5500 programme.”

Jetairfly will offer a large variety of movies, TV shows, music, and music videos suiting any preference. Passengers in 'comfort class' will have the players as an amenity and passengers flying economy can rent a player for a nominal charge, which helps to offset the programme costs.

Jetairfly will distribute and collect the players via digEcarts. Each cart is a custom built, lightweight Driessen cart designed to hold the maximum amount of players possible per cart. “The digEcart is a key component of the programme as it simplifies player rentals, logistics, and provisioning. Flight attendants are able to seamlessly add the dissemination and collection of players to their regular duties,” noted digEcor president Brad Heckel.
