Sichuan Airlines equips A350 with Thales Avant IFE


Sichuan Airlines is introducing the Airbus A350 XWB into service, a great aircraft in itself, made a little more special as it is the first A350 in China to be equipped with the Thales Avant IFE system. This deal further strengthens the relationship between Sichuan Airlines and Thales, which is already the airline’s preferred business partner in avionics, including the flight management system for its A320/A330 fleet.

“Thales is honored to equip Sichuan Airlines’ new A350 XWB aircraft with our state-of-the-art inflight entertainment system, Avant. We support Sichuan Airlines’ ambitions to drive the highest level of passenger satisfaction as we work together to shape new opportunities to provide a truly unique experience to all travelers,” stated Philippe Carette, CEO of Thales InFlyt Experience.
