Air Belgium has awarded a new contract to Panasonic Avionics to provide the carrier’s new Airbus A330neo aircraft with in-flight entertainment and connectivity solutions (IFEC).
Air Belgium’s two new A330neos will be fitted with Panasonic Avionics’ connectivity and mobile services, which includes full HD seatback monitors, complete with headsets, touch displays, and personalised interfaces.
Air Belgium’s chief executive officer Niky Terzakis said: “We are thrilled to be joining forces with Panasonic Avionics to continue to enrich and elevate our onboard experience. Their flexibility and innovative approach in delivering IFEC perfectly complements our internal resources and strategy.”
The aircraft’s in-flight connectivity will be powered by Panasonic Avionics’ global network of high-speed, high-bandwidth satellites, delivering fast internet, in-flight mobile phone services, and a 3D in-flight moving map platform.
Panasonic Avionics’ chief executive officer Ken Sain said: “Our in-flight entertainment and connectivity solutions will help Air Belgium strengthen their long-haul operations and drive customer satisfaction as they look to grow in the years ahead.”
