All Nippon Airways (ANA), which is Japan’s largest airline, has received its first B787-9 aircraft with Panasonic’s inflight entertainment (IFE), live television and broadband Wi-Fi from Panasonic Avionics Corporation.  

ANA’s new Dreamliner will have the full suite of the world’s best inflight entertainment and connectivity solutions from Panasonic, including its industry-leading live television product, eXTV. The service will give ANA passengers opportunities to view a host of live channels during their flight, including NHK World Premium, CNN and Sport 24, allowing them to keep up with both news and live sporting events.

In addition to live television, ANA passengers will also be able to purchase Wi-Fi access to browse the internet and send emails using Panasonic’s eXConnect service. The 787-9 aircraft will also feature eX3, Panasonic’s most advanced inflight entertainment system.

Mr Koji Oka, Director of Products and Services Strategy for ANA said, “For years our passengers have enjoyed an incredible entertainment experience through our partnership with Panasonic, and with our new 787-9 aircraft, we wanted to elevate this experience to a whole new level. With a powerful mix of early window content, live television and international Wi-Fi, we’re setting a new standard for air travel, and we are proud to partner with Panasonic.” 

Panasonic Avionics Corporation President and Chief Executive Officer Paul Margis said, “ANA’s goal was to create something truly unique for their passengers. Together, we have combined the world’s most advanced inflight entertainment technology to offer a connected seatback experience that includes multiple channels of real-time news, the world’s most popular sporting events and other television programming. The result is a one-of-a-kind experience for their passengers.”
