STRATEGIC DEVELOPMENTS
On 17 August, LEVEL announced it was the first airline brand to introduce innovative ‘Pair & Pay’ technology allowing customers to browse and buy products onboard from their seats using personal devices. The technology lets customers order items at any point in the flight and is very simple to use. To speed up the process even further, the LEVELair app allows customers to set up their own account and store a payment card to make onboard purchases.

On 31 August, Aer Lingus launched its Saver Fares which are the airline’s new low fares on direct flights between Ireland and North America. Saver Fares include one piece of 10kg cabin baggage, in-flight entertainment and on-board meals. Customers can then choose from a range of added on extras from checked baggage, seat selection, blanket and headphones at additional cost.
