Japan Airlines selects the Thales TopSeries Inflight Entertainment System


Neuilly-sur-Seine, 20 October 2009 – Japan Airlines has chosen the Thales TopSeries system as the Inflight entertainment platform on its Boeing 767.

“Japan Airlines pays close attention to products that can cater to the needs of our passengers. After a thorough review, Japan Airlines found the TopSeries architecture to be the right platform. We are happy to be working again with Thales, sharing an excellent relationship,” said Shigeru Nagatomi, Vice President of Maintenance Material Planning & Supply Department with Japan Airlines.

The airline has in total committed to install the TopSeries system across its fleet of B767s, B777s, and B787s. System features vary in accordance to domestic and international routes.

“Japan Airlines is one of our first IFE customers, dating back to 1997, when we installed our first generation AVOD system on part of Japan Airline’s B747-400 fleet. We appreciate their vision for the future and we will ensure that the TopSeries system remains aligned to their needs,” said Alan Pellegrini, Vice President and General Manager of Thales’s Inflight
Entertainment Systems business.

Beyond the system itself, Thales supports content management requirements for all aircraft with the TopSeries system onboard. Thales’s turnkey maintenance program, TopCare, is a comprehensive service available to airlines.
