China Southern selects Panasonic Avionic’ eXO for new Airbus fleet
China Southern Airlines, Asia’s largest airline, is to be the launch customer for Panasonic Avionics’ eXO system, the industry’s most sophisticated overhead in-flight entertainment system. The eXO system is designed with single aisle aircraft in mind and China Southern has chosen it for its new narrow-bodied fleet of Airbus A320s and A321s being delivered from early in 2016. The new fleet being equipped will initially consist of 54 aircraft, with an option of a further 50 as the airline expands. For the new China Southern fleet, the innovative eXO system will deliver overhead retract screens in Full 1080p High Definition (HD), clear digital audio, and in-seat high power USB charging for tablets and smart phones. The superior Full HD resolution of eXO provides passengers with the same high quality video in the air that they enjoy every day in their home.
