Sun Country Airlines has announced that digEplayer L7 handheld inflight entertainment systems are being introduced on flights three hours or longer; including the carrier’s new service from Minneapolis-St Paul to London Gatwick beginning on 27 May.
“The success of Sun Country’s digEplayer programme over the last eight months and the exceptional features of digEplayer L7 led to the decision to upgrade and expand the programme,” commented Wendy Blackshaw, Sun Country vice-president of marketing and sales. “For example, the touch screen technology, easy-to-use functionality and long battery life played a role in making the L7 the optimal choice for Sun Country and our passengers. This featured device enhances our world-class service which differentiates us from the competition.“
The new digEplayer L7 gives passengers the ability to personalise their entertainment by choosing from among 10 Hollywood movies, television programming, music, music videos and games. The devices will be complimentary for all first-class travellers with passengers in economy being able to rent the L7 for only $6.
“Sun Country is an award-winning airline focused on high-quality inflight amenities and superior customer service. The digEplayer L7 is a natural fit for Sun Country’s ‘we’ll put a smile on your face’ attitude,” remarked Brad Heckel, president of digEcor. “Further, our multi-year agreement with Sun Country further establishes the growing relevance of handheld IFE devices and the ability to earn ancillary revenues through initiatives such as rental programmes.”
