Sun Country partners with digEcor to offer inflight entertainment options

ST. PAUL, Minnesota June 8, 2010 - Sun Country Airlines today announced that it will offer customers the very best in personal entertainment systems through a partnership with digEcor, Inc. Beginning this weekend with the launch of its inaugural flight between the Twin Cities and London, Sun Country will offer customers use of the digEplayer XT, one of the very latest in inflight entertainment systems. The devices will be complimentary for all first-class travelers and available in coach class for just $10.

Each digEplayer will come preloaded with a selection of first-run movies including Avatar and Percy Jackson/The Lightning Thief as well as TV shows, music and games. Sporting an 8-inch screen, the digEplayer XT offers DVD-quality video and crisp, clear text and graphics and two independently controlled headphone jacks. With a battery life in excess of 12 hours, the digEplayer will keep travelers entertained throughout their flight.

"The digEplayer is perfectly suited for air travel, particularly on longer flights," said Wendy Blackshaw, Sun Country Vice President of Marketing and Sales. "digEcor has been a leader in designing personal entertainment systems for in-flight use and truly understands what travelers want. The digEplayer is intimate, and the device fits comfortably in your hands, on your lap or on a tray table. Our customers will have plenty of movies, music, games and other activities to choose from as they fly. It compliments the great service our customers have come to expect from Sun Country Airlines and continues the tradition of quality and innovation that we are known for."

Brad Heckel, President of digEcor, added, "We are excited about our new partnership and the opportunity to provide a comprehensive IFE solution to Sun Country and its passengers. Using our in-house content services and studio approved security methodology, the digEplayer XT will be loaded with a great selection of movies and TV shows and much more."
