Mexico City, Mexico and Lake Forest, California | June 5, 2014– Aeromexico, Mexico’s global airline, has chosen Panasonic Avionics Corporation (Panasonic) as its ground-breaking global in-flight broadband Wi-Fi provider.

It will become the first airline in Latin America to offer in-flight broadband by choosing Panasonic’s Ku-band satellite service – the only global network solely dedicated to aviation.

Aeromexico has selected the in-flight Wi-Fi service for nine of its new Boeing 787-8 Dreamliner fleet.

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

Panasonic Avionics CEO Paul Margis said: “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.”

Aeromexico’s 787s also will include a state-of-the-art Panasonic’s in-flight entertainment system with 16” Elite High Definition Panasonic screens in Clase Premier and Eco Monitor Touch Screens in the Economy Class cabin. They also will offer a moving map application that provides flight information in real time, a Jukebox application that allows passengers to create a personalized playlist from the 1,500 songs featured in the system, and Panasonic’s SeatChat solution, which lets passengers use the IFE system to send messages to other travellers throughout the cabin.
