Sichuan Airlines has taken delivery of an Airbus A320 equipped with Rockwell Collins’ PAVES seat-centric in-flight entertainment (IFE) system throughout its first class cabin and PAVES Broadcast IFE in economy.
“We see great value in Rockwell Collins’ IFE solution and the strong customer support network it brings,” remarked Li Haiying, president, Sichuan Airlines. “More importantly, we know our passengers will be pleased with a solution that they can rely on during their journeys.”
An additional Airbus A320 and Airbus A321 aircraft will be delivered to Sichuan Airlines equipped with both PAVES seat-centric and Broadcast IFE in the coming weeks.
PAVES Broadcast leverages the same on-board media server as PAVES seat-centric IFE, reducing weight while providing the airline with unprecedented flexibility to control the loading and unloading of its own digital content.
“Airlines want flexibility and control when it comes to their cabin and our PAVES system makes that possible,” added Greg Irmen, vice president and general manager, information systems for Rockwell Collins. “We worked closely with Sichuan Airlines to develop and design a complete solution that meets their needs to make passengers’ journeys as enjoyable as possible.”
