Air Europa is set to equip its new 787-8 Dreamliner fleet with Panasonic Avionics (Panasonic) in-flight entertainment and connectivity (IFEC) services.
Once Air Europa installs Panasonic’s eXConnect solution on its 787-8 aircraft, it will become the first Spanish airline to offer in-flight Wi-Fi. Passengers will be able to send emails, browse the internet and social media and more either from a connected seatback screen or their own personal electronic devices.
eX3, Panasonic’s tenth generation IFEC system, will offer Air Europa passengers high-definition touch-screen displays and surround sound, amongst other cutting edge features.
“We are honoured that Air Europa has selected Panasonic to offer such an exciting and strategic service. Their passengers can now expect an incredible entertainment experience and broadband Wi-Fi everywhere these aircraft fly,” said Paul Margis, CEO of Panasonic Avionics.
