“We have embarked on a complete overhaul of our onboard products and services offering to our customers,” explained Gulf Air chief executive officer Samer Majali. “The portable entertainment solution from digEcor is just the beginning of a major revamp of our total onboard entertainment and business support solution that we will start introducing across our fleet. Meanwhile, our Falcon Gold premium customers will have literally thousands of options in their fingertips that will keep them occupied and entertained throughout their journey.”
The digEplayers will provide a selection of more than 1,500 Hollywood, Arabic, Hindi and Filipino movies, music, music videos and games, television programming including a wide selection of Islamic titles, and children’s programmes.
digEcor president Brad Heckel commented, “We appreciate the relationship and trust that Gulf Air has extended to our team. Our content services, demonstrated by the variety of content in multiple languages that we are providing to Gulf Air, and flexible commercial options helped solidify digEcor as the vendor of choice.” The company will also provide maintenance and repair services.
