Panasonic wins $400m IFE contract from Singapore Airlines

By Christine Boynton

Panasonic Avionics won a $400 million inflight entertainment (IFE) and communications (IFEC) contract from Singapore Airlines (SQ).

The eX3 IFEC system will be outfitted on 43 aircraft the carrier has on firm order; 20 Airbus A350s, 15 A330-300s and eight Boeing 777-300ERs. The A350s are slated for deliveries from 2014, while the A330s and 777s will begin deliveries next year.

SQ said it also plans to enhance its existing Panasonic KrisWorld IFE with wider program selection, new and exclusive content, and “possible” hardware upgrades.

The carrier previously announced it would begin equipping its A340-500, A380-800 and 777-300ER aircraft with OnAir wireless internet and mobile data services.
