Vietnam Airlines has selected Thales to equip its new Boeing 787-10 Dreamliner with AVANT IFE, becoming the first airline to fly the B787-10 with the IFE product in the Asia-Pacific region.
The agreement expands on the existing partnership between Vietnam Airlines and Thales – the airline has previously chosen the Thales AVANT IFE system for their A350-900 XWB and B787-9 aircraft. Thales also provides turn-key maintenance services on these aircraft in collaboration with VAECO.
The IFE solution will provide passengers of Vietnam Airlines with a choice of television series, the most recent feature films, music and games during their flight.
Philippe Carette, CEO of Thales InFlyt Experience, said the company is proud to partner with Vietnam Airlines, adding: “This award further demonstrates Thales’ commitment in supporting the airline’s ambitions to provide the best-in-class onboard experience with our state-of-the-art AVANT IFE and aircraft maintenance services.”
