Dubai-based Emirates Airline has selected Rockwell Collins Airshow 4200D 3D Moving Map system for more than 140 aircraft, including 62 new wide-body Airbus and Boeing aircraft currently being delivered.

“The magnitude of Emirates’ Airshow 4200D selection signifies the continued market-leading capability and innovation of the Airshow platform,” said Claude Alber, vice president and managing director of Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EuMEA) for Rockwell Collins. “This selection is another example of how Emirates persistently pushes its creative envelope, and we are pleased to continue our long-term commitment to informing and entertaining their passengers.”

The system includes a new graphical design that utilizes NASA’s Blue Marble map data, which is based on actual satellite imagery, to provide a modernized view of real-time flight information to passengers. Other features include time and flight status displays; day and night views on all 3D maps; and a head-up display view designed to offer a pilot's-eye perspective of the flight.
