Clear Channel Airports, Inc., (CCA) a division of Clear Channel Outdoor Holdings, Inc., (NYSE:CCO) today announced a partnership with SmartTray International, LLC, to transform decades-old airline seat-back food trays into multi-purpose tech friendly tray-tables capable of simultaneously accommodating both mobile devices and the typical in-flight pretzels and beverages. This innovation is capable of leveraging digital place-based media technology while bringing passengers in-flight entertainment and Internet access right to their fingertips—without their ever having to reach overhead for their stowed tablet or other mobile device.

This partnership comes on the heels of the Federal Aviation Administration’s (FAA’s) October ruling that “…airlines can safely expand passenger use of Portable Electronic Devices (PEDs) during all phases of flight…” As a result, it’s anticipated that airline passengers will soon be reading e-books, playing games and watching videos on their own mobile devices during most phases of flight.

Smart Tray fashioned three different aircraft tray designs to support the use of PEDs -- travelers’ own devices and/or those provided by an airline. The SmartTray X1 features a fixed or rotating groove for a PED device. The X2 is a “tray within a tray,” and accommodates a PED by stowing the tablet inside the tray table while leaving the device fully accessible when the tray table is in the upright or down positions. The X3 is electronic and designed for embedding airline-owned tablet devices into the tray table and eliminates the time consuming and costly logistics of distribution, collection and re-charging of tablet device batteries inside airports between flights.

With the X2 and X3 models, Smart Tray becomes the launching pad for flexible and targeted marketing in the digital arena, reaching consumers when they have the time and the mindset to buy the products and services being presented to them in flight. CCA, the number one marketer of airport advertising, will help airline clients monetize their investments in SmartTray with advertising sales support and activation that adheres to recent FAA guidelines.
