Aeromexico selects Panasonic Ku-band connectivity


Mexican carrier Aeromexico has chosen Panasonic Avionics as its Ku-band broadband wi-fi provider for nine of its new Boeing 787-8 Dreamliner fleet. With this deal Aeromexico will become the first airline in Latin America to offer in-flight broadband.

Aeromexico’s B787s also will include a Panasonic IFE system with 16in Elite HD Panasonic screens in business class, and Eco Monitor touchscreens in economy. There will also be a moving map application, a Jukebox application that allows passengers to create a personalised playlist from the 1,500 songs featured in the system, and Panasonic’s SeatChat solution, which lets passengers use the IFE system to send messages to other travellers throughout the cabin.
