Panasonic to Provide IFE and Connectivity for EgyptAir's B787
Passengers who will fly on EgyptAir’s on-order Boeing 787-9 Dreamliners can be sure to enjoy some really dreamy moments onboard the long-haul next generation aircraft.
EGYPTAIR has entered into a deal with Panasonic Avionics Corporation (Panasonic) to provide inflight entertainment and connectivity (IFEC) systems for its six Boeing 787-9 aircraft.
The agreement will see the six Boeing 787-9 aircraft fitted with Panasonic’s eX3 IFE system along with inflight connectivity.
Panasonic’s eX3 inflight entertainment solution features the industry’s largest selection of options including HD monitors, capacitive touch handsets, in-seat power, and ensures a premium experience in every cabin class.
The combination of the eX3 IFE system with our global, high-speed communications service are designed to meet a wide range of passengers’ and crew needs.
In Business Class, each seat will feature an 18-inch screen, a video touch handset, a USB jack for high power charging in-seat and a noise cancelling audio jack. Economy Class passengers will each have a 12-inch screen and shared access to power outlets.
Each of the six Boeing 787-9 aircraft will also be fitted with overhead 16-inch screens throughout each cabin.
Panasonic’s eX3 system is capable of delivering over 700 hours of on-demand audio and video entertainment and offers excellent picture quality with enhanced colour and contrast features.
Its in-flight connectivity services include high-speed, global Wi-Fi, multiple channels of live television, and the ability to use smart phones to make and receive calls, SMS messages, and emails, and browse online.
EGYPTAIR has also opted for additional software applications across the fleet including passenger surveys, onboard shopping, 3D moving map and OneMedia for advertising.
