The Zodiac Aerospace’s In-Flight Entertainment system is fitted on Corsair aircraft

Toulouse, November 27, 2012 – Zodiac Aerospace today celebrates the delivery of the first Corsair (TUI Group) Airbus A330-300 equipped with the IFE (In-Flight Entertainment) system developed by Zodiac Aerospace. This IFE system will eventually be fitted to all Corsair’s Airbus A330s and Boeing B747s, including both retrofitted and new airliners.

This new IFE system from Zodiac Aerospace is both modern and comprehensive. It provides passengers audio/video on demand, interactive games, global positioning, etc., and provides airline companies with a new streamlined design, integrated into the seat (“Passenger Centric”), which permits to reduce the overall weight of the IFE system, to lower ownership costs, to limit the costs of integration into the seat, and to significantly improve the reliability of the IFE system, while offering passengers a very high rate of availability.

Zodiac Aerospace is actively promoting growth in this “Passenger Centric” IFE segment. The Group recently announced the purchase of the US company IMS, which should be finalized before the end of 2012. This acquisition will consolidate the Group’s position and increase the pace of its growth in this market segment, both in the cabin-retrofit market and the fitting of new planes, as is the case today.

Corsair has also chosen Zodiac Aerospace to supply the new seats (Zodiac Seats France) and new galleys (Zodiac Premium Galleys) for its entire fleet.

About Zodiac Aerospace and Zodiac IFE System
Zodiac Aerospace is a world leader in aerospace equipment and systems for commercial, regional, and business aircraft, as well as for helicopters and spatial. Zodiac Aerospace has 26,000 employees worldwide, and generated revenues of ?3.4 billion in 2011/2012 through its five business segments: Zodiac Cabin & Structures, Zodiac Galleys & Equipment, Zodiac Seats, Zodiac Aerosafety et Zodiac Aircraft Systems. http://www.zodiacaerospace.com
Zodiac Aerospace has developed a new In-Flight Entertainment (IFE) system providing main IFE functions such as Audio/Video on Demand (AVOD), Games and connection to any Moving Map with a simple architecture which leads to a lighter and more reliable IFE System. As the main difference to current IFE Systems, SiT is based on stand-alone Media Players, which do not need any servers for content streaming. An aircraft network interface is only necessary for the Passengers Services System (PSS), safety functions and additional streaming applications like Landscape Camera. The SiT offers a new simplified architecture yielding reduction of the overall IFE system weight, of approximately 40%, lowering ownership cost, limiting integration costs, and dramatically improving system reliability, by precluding system wide failures and rebooting so currently common. SiT also eases installation while using available and fully mature and tested information technologies. For more information about the SiT system: Contact.SiT@zodiacaerospace.com:
