SmartTray International, LLC, announced the launch of its SmartTray X1™ innovative and elegant PED friendly tray tables on Asia Atlantic Airlines Boeing 767-300ER aircraft, premium economy class seats.
SmartTray X1™ tray tables have made headlines around the globe with their simple groove design that holds traveler’s brought-on-board tablets, e-readers and smart phones, giving passengers a hands-free experience while freeing up much needed tray table space.
Bobby Haque, President of Asia Atlantic Airlines (HB) said: “We are always looking for ways to give our customers a better in-flight experience and are certain that they will appreciate the extra convenience and much needed space for other items purchased or brought onboard.”
“We applaud Asia Atlantic Airlines’ management in taking a leadership position in Asia to give its customers an innovative tray table that makes using PEDs hands-free possible, makes inflight time more productive for their business travelers, and frees up space for meals, beverages and other items at the same time,” said Nick Pajic, President & CEO of SmartTray International.
