China Eastern Airlines Selects Panasonic's eX3 IFE and WiFi

China Eastern Airlines has selected Panasonic Avionics' eX3 inflight entertainment (IFE) system and Wi-Fi connectivity service for its fleet of 35 new A350s and B787 aircraft.

 China Eastern Airlines, in partnership with China Telecom Satellite, was the first Chinese carrier to offer Panasonic's global Wi-Fi service on domestic flights and has already begun offering broadband communications on its international routes.

With this latest contract, China Eastern Airlines' entire wide body fleet will be equipped with Panasonic's high-speed communications service.

Paul Margis, Chief Executive Officer at Panasonic Avionics Corporation, said, "Panasonic remains the only global connectivity provider operating over China today, so we' re delighted to further strength our relationship with China Eastern Airlines through our third partnership agreement together. Panasonic continues to invest in developing reliable broadband Wi-Fi solutions that meet the increasing demand from passengers to be connected across the globe."

Panasonic Avionics' eXConnect uses the company's global Ku-band satellite network to deliver broadband connectivity to aircraft flying all over the world - even over oceans.
