Aeromexico will equip its Boeing 737 MAX fleet with inflight entertainment from Panasonic.
The new agreement will see 60 Boeing 737 MAX with Panasonic’s most advanced linefit IFE system for single-aisle aircraft.
This is a continuation of a long-running partnership between Aeromexico and Panasonic Avionics.
eX1 will offer Aeromexico passengers a familiar, easy-to-use, personalised interface that has been designed for an optimal viewing experience. This is backed by the industry’s largest library of games, audio and video.
Panasonic’s IFE system also provides airlines with a business platform that drives additional revenue and promotes greater brand loyalty by offering a consistently engaging experience with the highest levels of personalization.
Each system can be seamlessly combined with broadband connectivity to deliver high value services such as targeted advertising, concierge services, communications, social networking, streaming live television, phone services, and real-time commerce.
Paul Margis, President and Chief Executive Officer of Panasonic Avionics:
“Panasonic has a long and distinguished partnership with Aeromexico, and we’re proud to develop it further with the announcement of these 60 additional aircraft. The enhanced partnership means Aeromexico will now be able to deliver the same entertainment experience of its 787 fleet to its narrow body aircraft”.
Antonio Fernandez, Aeromexico’s VP Product Design and Service Standards:
“At Aeromexico, we are always looking for new ways to offer our passengers the most premium experience across our fleet of aircraft. Panasonic’s new IFE system means that we can deliver engaging content for all flyers, whether short or long-haul, driving loyalty and enhancing the customer experience.”
Panasonic works hand in hand with seat designers and manufacturers to create fully integrated IFE systems that give passengers maximum control of the seat environment.
Its systems act as a powerful business and marketing platform for airlines, making it easy for passengers to browse and buy goods and services inflight whilst enjoying carefully curated content that reflects the airline brand.
