[Avionics Magazine 10-20-2016] Panasonic Avionics Corporation and AeroMobile have announced the global availability of the new 3G eXPhone system. The technology builds on Panasonic’s eXPhone service, which is already installed on more than 450 aircraft across 19 airlines worldwide, according to the companies. Airlines such as Etihad, Cathay Pacific, Aer Lingus, EuroWings, SAS and Air Serbia have already started to install the 3G technology.
The inflight 3G network, which is operated over Panasonic’s eXConnect service, enables a quality and range of services much closer to those experienced on the ground, according to the company.
