It’s the age of digital dependency. We’re addicted to technology and our smart devices. Adults typically spend an average of 2 hours and 49 minutes on their phone each day*. Younger people aged 15 to 24 often spend even more time, four hours on average, using their smart phone daily*. Those figures are expected to rise over the coming years.
With smart device use comes the need for USB power. Before your passengers even arrive at the airport they’ve probably checked into their flight, booked a ride to the airport, checked their social media, surfed the internet, sent some work emails and made a few calls. And then they would like to enjoy your inflight entertainment on their personal device without the frustration running out of power. After all, your passenger will need a charged smart device to check-in with loved ones or order a ride when they arrive at their destination.
digEcor’s in-seat power solutions help airlines to exceed passenger expectations and stay competitive in the air, by offering easy-to-install in-seat power that maximise seat space. The innovative in-seat solution delivers a lightweight and affordable installation of passenger power. It’s designed with reduced components, lowering weight and cost, and requiring minimal installation time.
Personal devices also provide an opportunity for you to unlock ancillary revenue. Visit the digEcor team at booth A13 during the FTE Asia Expo to learn more about unlocking the value of USB power and seat-centric IFE.

Stu McGraw, digEcor’s Asia Pacific Regional Sales Manager, will be also discussing this growing trend in the Inflight Innovation Session at 10am on Wednesday 14 November. Don’t miss out!
