e.Digital Corporation has announced a continuing agreement with Alitalia covering new eVU sales and on-going content integration and repair services.
The agreement follows an order from Alitalia for more eVU portable in-flight entertainment devices which are exclusive to the carrier’s premium class passengers.
“We’re excited to continue our long term relationship with Alitalia by supplying them with our ‘best in class’ eVU portable entertainment system and services,” said Fred Falk, president and CEO of e.Digital. “Most if not all of the eVU players Alitalia originally purchased four years ago, are still in service as a result of the eVU being a ‘purpose built’ device, making it easy to repair and refurbish. We look forward to working with Alitalia for many more years to come”.
Following the merger between Alitalia and Air One in 2009, the new Alitalia was launched. Alitalia now operates more than 2,200 flights per week to 79 destinations around the world and is a member of the SkyTeam international alliance.
