Lufthansa Selects Panasonic Avionics For Boeing 747-8 IFE


Panasonic Avionics has been selected by Lufthansa to provide its NEXT in-flight entertainment (IFE) system and enhanced connectivity solutions for the airline’s flagship Boeing 747-8 fleet.


Panasonic Avionics’ NEXT IFE system will be retrofitted on Lufthansa’s 19 Boeing 747-8s, with the first due to be rolled out in summer 2024.


This higher performance system will provide Lufthansa’s passengers with a superior, immersive cinematic experience using the latest 4K screen technology, with faster network speeds and higher storage capacity.


Business Class passengers will enjoy an enhanced IFE experience with up to 24-inch 4K screens, a large 10-inch additional control unit, high power USB–A / USB-C, AC power and wireless charging capabilities.


Premium Economy Class passengers will experience an upgraded 16-inch 4K screen, with a 13-inch 4K screen for Economy Class passengers, both with high power USB-A and USB-C charging.


Lufthansa and Panasonic Avionics also announced the renewal of connectivity services offered by Panasonic Avionics.


Broadband connectivity, which is already installed on Lufthansa widebody aircraft, uses Panasonic Avionics’ global network of high-speed, high-bandwidth satellites to live up to the connectivity expectations of Lufthansa’s passengers.


Mobile phone connectivity will also be upgraded to 4G speeds on Lufthansa’s Boeing 747-8 aircraft.


Panasonic Avionics Corporation is the world’s leading supplier of in-flight entertainment and communication systems. Leading airlines across the world have Panasonic Avionics IFE systems installed on more than 15,000 commercial aircraft and satellite Wi-Fi connectivity on over 3,400 aircraft.
