Air Europa Selects Panasonic eXConnect and eX3, Becomes the First Spanish Airline to Offer In-flight Broadband

Air Europa has chosen Panasonic Avionics Corporation’s (Panasonic) eX3 and eXConnect in-flight entertainment and communications solutions for its new 787-8 Dreamliner fleet.

It will become the first airline in Spain to offer in-flight broadband by choosing Panasonic’s Ku-band satellite service – the only global network solely dedicated to aviation. This eXConnect service enables passengers to access the internet, compose and send emails, log onto their favorite social media sites and more right from a connected seatback or their own personal electronic devices.

eX3 is Panasonic’s tenth generation and most advanced IFEC solution. It leverages uncompromising industrial design, high-definition display technologies, a portfolio of advanced capacitive touch handsets, and the latest advances in surround sound to create a home theater atmosphere that draws passengers into the airline’s unique experience.

Juan José Hidalgo, Air Europa’s CEO, said: “This exciting development emphasizes our commitment to provide the very best service to our customers with the very best technology, on board the best aircraft with the finest crew. We are delighted to extend our partnership with Panasonic.”

Paul Margis, Panasonic Avionics’ CEO, said: “We are honored that Air Europa has selected Panasonic to offer such an exciting and strategic service. Their passengers can now expect an incredible entertainment experience and broadband Wi-Fi everywhere these aircraft fly.”
