[Avionics Today 04-14-2015] Xiamen Airlines has selected Panasonic Avionics to equip its new fleet of Boeing 787 Dreamliners with global aircraft connectivity and In-Flight Entertainment (IFE) systems.
Xiamen Airlines, a Sky Team alliance member that began international operations this year, will equip six of its Boeing 787-8s with Panasonic’s inflight Wi-Fi service as well as its eX3 entertainment system. The system will allow the airline to offer passengers high-definition screens as well as audio and video entertainment. Panasonic, through its partnership with China Telecom, is the only provider authorized to offer in-flight Wi-Fi on flights over mainland China.
