Canadian low-fare airline, WestJet, will introduce in June this year as part of the carrier’s in-flight entertainment (IFE) offeringthe new portable device, TrayVu Slim, developed by Skycast Solutions.
WestJet will offer through the tablet technology a host of pre-loaded IFE content for passengers on board its two newest Boeing 737 Next Generation aircraft.
“We are excited to introduce the TrayVu Slim on board our two newest WestJet aircraft,” commented WestJet’s Vice-President, Product and Distribution, Marshall Wilmot. “Offering our guests a dynamic inflight entertainment option like this is directly in line with our commitment to deliver a remarkable guest experience.”
Skycast Solutions claims that the new portable inflight device is the industry’s only portable IFE that features a unique and proprietary clip that frees the tray for food or beverages and provides optimal viewing angles. The design of the TrayVu Slim is aimed at being compact and weighs less than two pounds which allows airlines to maximize the number of portable units boarded. Units offer an airline-specific user interface with user-friendly tablet navigation and will come with complimentary headphones.
Along with the technology, complete content uploading and operations support is also provided. The TrayVu Slim programme also provides airlines a new transition option if they desire to move to Skycast Solutions embedded TrayVu system.
“We remain committed to make flying more enjoyable while generating ancillary revenue opportunities for our airline customers,” declared CEO of Skycast Solutions, Bill Boyer. “The TrayVu Slim is a game changer for airlines looking at portable inflight entertainment options.”
