PaxEx: Air Tanzania Selects Panasonic Avionics For IFEC
To enhance the onboard experience of its passengers, Air Tanzania has selected Panasonic Avionics’ inflight entertainment (IFE) connectivity system onboard its Airbus A220 aircraft.
The airline has equipped two of its A220s with Panasonic’s eX1 IFE solution which is specifically designed for narrowbody aircraft.
Each seat will feature elegant full HD seatback monitors, complete with touch displays and handsets, and an intuitive, personalized interface. Passengers will have access to USB and laptop charging power points at every seat.
Air Tanzania’s A220s will also be fitted with Panasonic’s inflight Wi-Fi service. Panasonic’s next generation connectivity enables fast internet to video streaming, all powered by its new satellite modem featuring bandwidth up to twenty times greater than previously available.
The announcement marks the extension of Panasonic’s relationship with Air Tanzania following the airline’s selection of its inflight entertainment and connectivity solutions for two of its Boeing 787 aircraft and two Airbus A220 in 2018.
Air Tanzania was the first African carrier to take delivery of the A220 in November 2018 and January 2019. It operates a fleet of Dash 8-Q400, Airbus A220 and Boeing 787-8 Dreamliner.
