Sichuan Airlines has installed Panasonic Avionics  Corporation's eX2 in-flight entertainment and communications (IFEC) system on its new Airbus A330 aircraft which will enter service on 9 February 2010.

A significant milestone for both Panasonic and Sichuan Airlines, the eX2 equipped A330 aircraft is the airline's first audio and video on demand (AVOD)-equipped aircraft. At the same time, Sichuan Airlines is the first Panasonic customer in mainland China to adopt the eX2 system cabin-wide onboard. The Panasonic eX2 IFEC system provides an interactive experience cabin-wide with AVOD at every seat.

Sichuan Airlines, headquartered in Chengdu, Sichuan in the People's Republic of China, operates over 51 aircraft to 50 destinations across the globe. Based at Chengdu Shuangliu International Airport, Chongqing Jiangbei International Airport and Kunming Wujiaba International Airport, Sichuan Airlines has the largest Airbus fleet in southwestern China.

"We chose the Panasonic eX2 system because it has the most innovative features and the richest functionality that will engage and excite our passengers," said Lan Xinguo, Chairman for Sichuan Airlines. "By being the first to install eX2 in mainland China, Sichuan Airlines will certainly differentiate our brand in China's rapidly growing transportation industry. We aim to lead our market with passenger satisfaction, and expect that the addition of Panasonic's eX2 system will create greater customer loyalty for our airline."
