Air China has selected inflight entertainment and connectivity (IFEC) solutions from Panasonic Avionics for its fleet of Airbus A350 aircraft.
Under the terms of the agreement, Panasonic will provide its eX3 inflight entertainment for 10 Air China A350 aircraft.
The first of these will be delivered in December 2017.
The eX3 solution will bring audio and video on demand, a content library that can offer up to 300 movies, 200 TV shows, games, music, a moving map, and much more.
These A350 aircraft will also offer global connectivity services, which will allow Air China passengers to keep in touch with friends, families, co-workers and current events everywhere these aircraft fly.
Panasonic says it now operates its inflight connectivity service in 210 countries, including China.
Hideo Nakano, Chief Executive Officer of Panasonic Avionics Corporation, said: “We are honoured to partner with Air China on its A350 programme.
“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 favourite social media applications like WeChat.
“The reliability, performance and flexibility of eX3 and our connectivity service makes it an ideal choice for these aircraft.”
