AVIANCA CHOOSES PANASONIC IFE FOR NEW NARROWBODY FLEET

Avianca, a leading airline in Latin America, has selected Panasonic Avionics’ eX1 IFE system for its new fleet of Airbus A320 family aircraft.

eX1, the most advanced IFE system for single-aisle aircraft, will be installed on 28 of Avianca’s new narrowbodies.

It will feature Hi-Definition (HD) screens throughout each aircraft, with 11 inch energy-efficient, lightweight Eco monitors in Business Class with touch-screen handsets, and 9 inch Eco monitors in Economy Class. Power outlets will also be installed at every Business Class seat and in every Economy Class row.

Paul Margis, CEO of Panasonic, said: “We have a long history of working with Avianca and are delighted to be working with them on a new narrowbody IFE experience. Like Avianca, we are committed to delighting passengers with the world’s most advanced IFE systems, and with eX1, we will help truly enhance their in-flight entertainment experience.”

eX1 has a proven, uncompromising, industrial design and offers passengers an easy-to-use interface that is designed for an optimal viewing experience, and is backed by the industry’s largest library of games, audio, video and more.

“Avianca’s A320 interiors have been completely redesigned under the airline’s new brand image, offering passengers a renewed and improved onboard experience. We chose Panasonic to continue our work together striving to deliver a world class service to our customers,” said Estuardo Ortiz, COO of Avianca.
