Aeromexico’s 787-8 Dreamliners

A total of nine of Aeromexico’s 787-8 Dreamliners will be equipped with high-speed onboard broadband.

Aeromexico has confirmed that it will use Panasonic Avionics’ Ku-band satellite service to offer high-speed Wi-Fi onboard nine of its Boeing 787-8 Dreamliners.

The carrier’s Dreamliners will also include Panasonic’s in-flight entertainment (IFE) system, which as well as movies, music and a real-time moving map application, will also include the SeatChat function, which allows passengers to send messages to one another via the IFE system.

Andres Conesa, CEO, Aeromexico, said: “This exciting development underlines our commitment to provide the very best service to our customers with the very best technology, onboard the best aircraft with the finest crew. We are delighted to further extend our partnership with Panasonic.”

Panasonic Avionics CEO Paul Margis added: “We are thrilled that Aeromexico has chosen Panasonic to provide such an exciting and strategic service. Their passengers can now expect an incredible entertainment experience and broadband Wi-Fi everywhere these aircraft fly.”

Future Travel Experience Up in the airIf you are committed to enhancing the onboard passenger experience, make sure you attend the FTE Up in the Air conference, which will take place at our flagship event, FTE Global 2014, in Las Vegas from 24-26 September 2014. The theme of the event is 'Redefining the end-to-end passenger experience'.

The Up in the Air conference will focus on all things in-flight – including IFE&C, passenger and crew connectivity, cabin design, passenger comfort, personalisation and ancillary revenue generation – and we look forward to playing an important role in shaking up the passenger experience in the air, which has evolved very little in the last 20 years, unlike on the ground.
