Tibet Airlines selected Rockwell Collins to provide a suite of avionics for the airline's Airbus A319s. The systems will initially be installed on nine of Tibet's new Airbus A319 aircraft, with an option for nine additional aircraft. Deliveries will begin in July 2011.

The electronics selected include Rockwell Collins' Digital Programmable Audio Video Entertainment System (dPAVES) in-flight entertainment system (IFE), MultiScan Threat Detection System and GLU-925 Multi-Mode Receiver (MMR). The dPAVES system includes a High-Definition Media Server (HDMS), a touch screen flight attendant entertainment control panel (ECP) and USB ports. The HDMS provides 160 gigabytes of solid state digital audio and video storage capability, integrated pre-recorded announcements and music (PRAM) functionality, and an embedded Airshow moving map application.

Tibet Airlines also selected the following sensors from Rockwell Collins: ADF-900 Automatic Detection Finder, DME-900 Distance Measuring Equipment, VOR-900 VHF Omnidirectional Radio, HFS-900D High Speed Data Radio, VHF-2100 Very High Frequency Transceiver, LRA-900 Low-range Radio Altimeter and RDMI-743 Radio Distance Magnetic Indicator.
