HAMBURG, Germany – 19 May 2010 – Panasonic Avionics Corporation (Panasonic), the world leader in state-of-the-art in-flight entertainment and communication (IFEC) systems, today announced that Lufthansa will deploy the Panasonic eX2 IFEC system on its flagship Airbus A380 aircraft.

Panasonic’s eX2 IFEC system will provide Lufthansa’s passengers – in every service class – with a full complement of entertainment and communication options at their fingertips. The eX2 IFEC system will provide an enhanced passenger experience with access to a wide variety of audio and video on demand (AVOD) selections including the latest feature films in up to eight languages, TV series, international radio channels, CDs, games, flight and connecting gate information, all displayed on in-seat monitors. The user friendly interface gives passengers a choice of 10 different navigation languages. Power for personal electronic devices is available in first, business class and economy class.

“As Lufthansa planned its new flagship aircraft, they aspired to offer best-in-class amenities and provide each passenger with a superior entertainment experience,” said Paul Margis, Chief Executive Officer of Panasonic Avionics Corporation. “We’re proud to be a part of that. By selecting our eX2 IFEC system for its A380 fleet, Lufthansa ensures all of its passengers will enjoy the most engaging content in the sky.

“This is a major step forward for both Lufthansa and Panasonic,” Margis added. “This sets a new standard for flight comfort, service and entertainment.” Lufthansa has ordered 15 of the Airbus A380 aircraft. The aircraft will have 526 seats in three classes on two levels. With four of the planes expected to be in service by the end of the year, initial routes will be between Frankfurt and the destination cities of Tokyo, Beijing and Johannesburg. The inaugural commercial flight will leave Frankfurt June 11, en route to Tokyo.
