Bamboo Airways has selected Panasonic Avionics to provide inflight entertainment and connectivity systems (IFEC) for its widebody fleet.
Panasonic Avionics is installing its ‘eX3’ inflight entertainment system on the airline’s 787-9 fleet, with the aircraft entering service on its intercontinental routes to Europe and Australia in recent weeks.
According to Panasonic, eX3 offers an “immersive, cinematic” experience with HD screens at each seat, complete with capacitive touch displays and handsets, and USB and laptop charging facilities. There will be 18-inch HD screens in Business Class, with 13-inch and 12-inch screens in Premium Economy and Economy Class respectively.
Bamboo Airways has also selected global inflight connectivity services from Panasonic Avionics, which can deliver average speeds up to 100 megabits per second (Mbps) to the aircraft.
“We are honoured to be partnering with Bamboo Airways’ as they launch intercontinental services,” said Panasonic Avionics’ chief executive officer Ken Sain. “We are confident that our proven inflight entertainment and connectivity systems will enhance their passenger experience, and help them quickly build customer loyalty on these major new routes.”

With the cooperation with our trusted partner Panasonic Avionics, we expect to bring the most fulfilling flight experience to our passengers on every journey in the future.”
