Kenya Airways (KQ) has become the second airline customer for digEcor’s latest in-flight entertainment device, the digEplayer L10.
From early June, the digEplayer L10 will be available to passengers on KQ’s B767 routes to Paris, London, Rome, Dubai, Bangkok, Mumbai and other destinations. IFE content will include a selection of Hollywood, Hindi and African movies, in addition to television programming, music, music videos and games. The L10 will be offered for free to Business Class passengers.
Kenya Airways was a previous airline digEcor customer during 2005 to 2010 using onboard the digEplayer 5500.
The L10, a handheld IFE device, offers an 18+ hour battery, 10 inch screen, Gigabit Ethernet port for fast content loads and a capacitive touch screen. Using the dedicated content update station, 80 L10s can be simultaneously loaded with new content from a single server. The digEplayer L10 is also DO-160 emissions compliant.
“Why invent a solution when one already exists? The digEplayer 5500 worked so well for KQ that we are confident that the new digEplayer L10 will perform even better,” declared Manager of Services Procurement for Kenya Airways, Owino Obonyo.
“We are very excited to welcome Kenya Airways back to the digEcor family of customers and look forward to serving ‘The Pride of Africa,’” commented Adam Williams, digEcor’s Marketing Director.
