Air Arabia, a low-cost airline serving the Middle East and North Africa, and Taiwan’s Eva Airways have signed separate deals with Irvine-based Panasonic Avionics Corp. for in-flight entertainment and information systems covering a total of 226 airplanes.

Panasonic Avionics’ eXW wireless in-flight entertainment (IFE) systems will be used on 172 aircraft in Air Arabia’s fleet, including the Airbus A320neo, A321neo and A321XLR fleets.

The wireless entertainment available to passengers will also have various digital features, including a moving map and an advertising component, Panasonic Avionics said on June 3. Air Arabia is based in the United Arab Emirates.

“Wireless IFE remains a critical component of many airlines’ strategy,” Panasonic Avionics Chief Executive Ken Sain said.

Taiwanese Carrier

Separately, Panasonic Avionics said on May 29 that it will furnish systems for 54 aircraft of the Eva Airways of Taiwan, both widebody and narrowbody.

The new Astrova in-flight entertainment and communications system will be installed on 18 of the airline’s new Airbus A350-1000 and 14 of its existing Boeing 777-300ER aircraft.

The work also includes retrofitting 17 of the airline’s Airbus A321.
