What was the requirement identified by Sunclass Airlines?
When Sunclass Airlines began to investigate wireless IFE options, they witnessed the growing popularity and many benefits it offers. Inflight Dublin advised on the Everhub™ solution which would align with their current offering of seatback content and provide a touch-free solution for passengers during a time when hygiene and safety is a top priority.
How we addressed Sunclass Airlines’ requirements
After receiving a demo of the solution, Sunclass Airlines were satisfied to proceed with a full deployment of Everhub™ across its A321 fleet. With tight deadlines to ensure a seamless entry to service, the solution had a complete turnaround of just 8 weeks from discussion to full installation.
