“We are delighted to be working with Air Belgium to enhance the passenger experience on their new fleet. By tailoring the way we offer our award-winning solutions to meet the individual needs of carriers, we are able to create a product portfolio that can fit every airline’s business model,” said Panasonic Avionics CEO Ken Sain in an October 18 press release. “Our inflight entertainment and connectivity solutions will help Air Belgium strengthen their long-haul operations and drive customer satisfaction as they look to grow in the years ahead.”

Panasonic Avionics will power the aircraft’s inflight connectivity with its global network of high-speed, high-bandwidth satellites. The network provides fast internet and inflight mobile phone services. The system will also feature ArcTM, Panasonic Avionics 3D inflight moving map platform.

“We are thrilled to be joining forces with Panasonic Avionics to continue to enrich and elevate our onboard experience,” said Air Belgium CEO Niky Terzakis. “Their flexibility and innovative approach in delivering IFE and connectivity perfectly complement our internal resources and strategy.”
