Sichuan Airlines selects Thales CORE IFE


Sichuan Airlines is fitting Thales’ CORE IFE system to its future fleet of A350 aircraft, with entry into service scheduled for the fourth quarter of 2021. The airline’s A350s will be fitted in a two-class cabin configuration, equipped with 17in IFE displays in business class and 12in displays in economy class, all running the new Select graphical user interface (GUI) featuring user-experience technologies with a focus on an intuitive passenger experience.

The CORE IFE system is based on Thales’ established AVANT platform, which is fitted on Sichuan Airlines’ current fleet of A350s, enabling a streamlined process for configuration and delivery and a competitive cost of ownership. CORE is packaged with Thales support services.
