Panasonic Avionics has been selected by Finnair to upgrade the inflight entertainment (IFE) systems across its wide-body long-haul fleet.

The IFE upgrade is an integral part of the Nordic cabin enhancements being introduced by Finnair across its long-haul fleet.

Panasonic Avionics is installing its latest eX3 system in all cabins on Finnair’s eight A330-300 aircraft. Upgrading them from its eX2 system. Finnair’s 19 A350-900 aircraft, which already carry eX3, will also see their premium cabins upgraded to the latest version of the system. The first upgraded aircraft entered service in February 2022.

“Finnair’s innovative and eye-catching wide-body cabin enhancements take their passenger experience to a new level. Panasonic Avionics is honored to be contributing to this upgrade with our latest inflight entertainment solutions, marking the latest chapter in our relationship with this industry-leading carrier,” said Ken Sain, Chief Executive Officer of Panasonic Avionics, in a April 12 press release.

Passengers will experience Panasonic Avionics’ award-winning eX3 system in every cabin of its long-haul fleet, including HD screens at each seat, complete with capacitive touch displays and handsets, and USB and laptop charging facilities, with the upgrade.

"This upgrade for Finnair reflects our commitment to deliver a premium experience in every cabin on our aircraft. Having the latest technology on board will allow our customers to stay entertained as they travel long-haul,” said Harri Valkama, Digital Channel Lead at Finnair.
