Qatar Airways has become the launch customer for Panasonic Avionics’ new EcoFW 10” in-flight entertainment (IFE) upgrade program.
The seatback IFE monitors on the airline’s fleet of 37 Boeing 777 aircraft will be updated with Panasonic’s new EcoFW 10” monitor upgrade—creating a next-generation HD passenger experience while extending the life of the fleet’s IFE system, and reducing operational costs.
Panasonic’s IFE upgrade program, which can be achieved on an aircraft during routine overnight maintenance, includes the installation of a new passenger entertainment server.
This provides passengers with a wider range of content and helps to modernize the airline’s offering and keep up-to-date with the demands of changing consumer preferences.
This also enables the airline to achieve faster media loading times – all without any increase in weight, and with dramatically improved reliability levels.
The first aircraft from Qatar Airways’ Boeing 777 fleet has already completed its IFE upgrade.
This commitment from Qatar Airways marks the latest milestone in a longstanding partnership with Panasonic, which first started in 2000.
