Aeromexico has opted for Panasonic Avionics Corporation (Panasonic) in-flight broadband solution, claiming to become the first airline in Latin America to offer an in-flight connectivity service.
Powered by Panasonic's Ku-band satellite system, Aeromexico has selected the in-flight Wi-Fi service for nine of its new Boeing 787-8 Dreamliner aircraft.
Aeromexico’s 787s also will include Panasonic’s in-flight entertainment (IFE) system with 16” Elite High Definition Panasonic screens in Class Premier and Eco Monitor Touch Screens in the Economy Class cabin. In addition, passengers will have access to a moving map application that provides flight information in real time, a Jukebox application that creates a personalized playlist from 1,500 songs, and Panasonic’s SeatChat solution, which lets passengers use the IFE system to send messages to other travellers throughout the cabin.
