AeroMéxico connects with Panasonic to offer inflight broadband
AeroMéxico, Mexico's global airline, has chosen Panasonic Avionics Corporation (Panasonic) as its global inflight broadband Wi-Fi provider for nine of its new Boeing 787-8 Dreamliner fleet.
The airline will become the first in Latin America to offer inflight broadband by choosing Panasonic's Ku-band satellite service — the only global network solely dedicated to aviation.
“This exciting development underlines our commitment to provide the very best service to our customers with the very best technology, onboard the best aircraft with the finest crew. We are delighted to further extend our partnership with Panasonic,” said Andres Conesa, Aeromexico's CEO.
AeroMéxico’s 787s also will include a state-of-the-art Panasonic inflight entertainment system with 16” Elite high definition screens in Premier Class and Eco Monitor touch screens in the Economy Class cabin. They also will offer a moving map application that provides flight information in real time, a jukebox application that allows passengers to create a personalized playlist from the 1,500 songs featured in the system, and Panasonic’s SeatChat solution, which allows passengers to use the IFE system to send messages to other travelers throughout the cabin.
“We are thrilled that AeroMéxico has chosen Panasonic to provide such an exciting and strategic service. Their passengers can now expect an incredible entertainment experience and broadband Wi-Fi everywhere these aircraft fly," said Paul Margis, Panasonic Avionics CEO.
