Air China selects Panasonic suite for A350s

 

Air China has selected Panasonic’s eX3 inflight entertainment and connectivity solutions for its fleet of A350s.

Panasonic will provide the eX3 on 10 Air China A350s, with the first delivered in December 2017.

Air China will offer audio and video on demand, a content library that can offer up to 300 movies, 200 TV shows, games, music, a moving map, and other features. Also included is global connectivity service in 210 countries.

"We are honored to partner with Air China on its A350 program,” said Hideo Nakano, Chief Executive Officer of Panasonic Avionics Corporation.Because the airline's route structure includes very long flights to all seven continents, it needed an IFEC solution that would help keep passengers entertained and offer new opportunities for it to generate revenue.

"With eX3, Air China will offer its passengers a memorable experience that lets them watch movies and television, listen to music or connect to their favorite social media applications like WeChat. The reliability, performance and flexibility of eX3 and our connectivity service makes it an ideal choice for these aircraft."
