Air New Zealand (Air NZ) has completed the refurbishment of its first Boeing 777-200ER, featuring Panasonic’s ex3 in-flight entertainment (IFE) system.
The airline is aiming to bring the passenger experience into line with the high quality of service already offered on the carrier’s Boeing 777-300ER and 787-9 aircraft.
Chief marketing and customer officer Mike Tod commented, “From lounge upgrades in New Zealand and overseas to new aircraft, refurbished aircraft and enhanced digital experiences we are committed to reinvesting in the things our customers value.”
ex3 is Panasonic’s 10th generation IFE system for wide-bodied aircraft. It offers high definition and 3D display capabilities as well as surround sound. The company claim that the ex3 monitors are as intuitive as those on passenger’s smartphones and tablets.
Air NZ’s final refurbished B777-200ER aircraft is expected to be rolled out towards the end of 2015
