Panasonic Avionics and China Telecom partner to connect skies over China

  • 15-Aug-2013 09:43 EDT

Panasonic Avionics signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with China Telecom Satellite Communications Ltd. to jointly develop, implement, and support in-flight connectivity solutions for the Chinese market. The signing of the MOU will also make possible the first ever provision of in-flight connectivity to Panasonic's 36 non-Chinese customer airlines when flying into and over China. Panasonic Avionics' eXConnect system uses its global Ku-band aeronautical satellite network to deliver in-flight broadband connectivity, enabling passengers to access the Internet, send email, or log onto social media. Both parties are working to complete their formal contract and plan to begin offering commercial in-flight connectivity services in the fourth quarter of 2013.
