The design of the TrayVu Slim allows airlines to maximize the number of portable units boarded. In June 2012, Canada's preferred airline, WestJet, will introduce the new tablet technology, offering a host of pre-loaded content for guests on board their two newest Boeing 737 Next Generation aircraft.


"We are excited to introduce the TrayVu Slim on board our two newest WestJet aircraft," said Marshall Wilmot, WestJet Vice-President, Product and Distribution. "Offering our guests a dynamic inflight entertainment option like this is directly in-line with our commitment to deliver a remarkable guest experience."

TrayVu Slim represents the very latest in portable IFE technology and support. As the only portable IFE device with duel stand/clip for optimum customer enjoyment, the product offers still-in-theater movies, new release movies, TV shows, children's programming and more. The TrayVu Slim is compact and weighs less than two pounds, which allows airlines to maximize quantities on board. 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 program 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," said Bill Boyer, CEO of Skycast Solutions. "The TrayVu Slim is a game changer for airlines looking at portable inflight entertainment options."
