Shandong Airlines has chosen Rockwell Collins’s dPAVES high-definition (HD) IFE solution and the company’s full-suite of avionics for installation on 30 new Boeing 737-800 aircraft.
With the second generation of dPAVES, Shandong passengers will experience a more diverse range of information and entertainment content than past offerings in an overhead video console. In addition, Rockwell Collins state that the airline will notice a reduction in volume, weight and power, and reduced maintenance costs when compared to analog systems.
Other avionics selected by Shandong Airlines include Rockwell Collins’s WXR-2100 MultiScan Threat Detection System, GLU-925 Multi-Mode Receiver, ADF-900 Automatic Direction Finder, DME-900 Distance Measuring Equipment, HFS-900D High Speed Data Radio, LRA-2100 Low-range Radio Altimeter, VHF-2100 Very High Frequency Transceiver, VOR-900 VHF Omnidirectional Radio, Passenger Address Unit (PAU), TTR-2100 Traffic Collision Avoidance System (TCAS), and Communications Management Unit (CMU-900).
Deliveries are expected later this year and to continue through 2013.
