Royal Jordanian B787s to feature Thales IFEC systems
Royal Jordanian Airlines have selected Thales In-Flight Entertainment and Connectivity (IFEC) systems for their Boeing 787 aircraft.
The advanced TopSeries AVANT system and TopConnect cabin communications network will be introduced on eleven of Royal Jordanian Airlines’ new Boeing 787 aircraft, with entry into service scheduled for the third quarter of 2014.
Royal Jordanian are the first airline to select the TopSeries AVANT system for their B787 aircraft. The TopSeries AVANT system combines the strengths of earlier platforms with advanced technologies such as high-definition video, solid-state hard drives and faster processors. The award-winning system is renowned for its thin profile, lightweight, modern design and local content storage capacity.
For connectivity, the Thales cabin communications network supports swift broadband capabilities for GSM, Wi-Fi Internet and integrated in-flight entertainment applications. The Thales TopConnect solution integrates OnAir as communications service provider.
Commenting on the selection, Alan Pellegrini, Chief Executive Officer for the Thales In-Flight Entertainment and Connectivity business states that “Royal Jordanian is a long-time Thales customer and we are very pleased to be part of their Boeing 787 program. We anticipate that our new system and proven experience with Swift broadband connectivity will be well received by both the airline and their passengers.”
