APEX 2013: Avianca selects Panasonic IFE for new narrowbody fleet

Latin America's Avianca has selected Panasonic Avionics’ eX1 IFE system for its new fleet of Airbus A320 family aircraft.

The eX1 system will be installed on 28 of Avianca’s new narrowbody fleet. It will feature hi-definition (HD) screens throughout each aircraft, with 11-inch energy-efficient, lightweight Eco monitors in business class with touch-screen handsets, and 9-inch Eco monitors in economy class.

Power outlets will also be installed at every business class seat and in every economy class row.

Paul Margis, President and Chief Executive Officer of Panasonic Avionics, said: “Panasonic Avionics has a long history of working with Avianca and we are delighted to be working with them again on a new narrowbody IFE experience.

"Like Avianca, we are committed to delighting passengers with the world’s most advanced IFE systems, and with eX1, we will help truly enhance their in-flight entertainment experience.”

Panasonic's eX1 offers passengers an easy-to-use interface that is designed for an optimal viewing experience, and is backed by the industry's largest library of games, audio, video and more.
