Fourteen months after Panasonic Avionics snatched up Charles Ogilvie from Virgin America to lead its Chinese adventures, the IFE giant has opened its China Region headquarters in Hong Kong (nicely timed with the Aircraft Interiors Expo in that illustrious city).
Panasonic has also revealed it is in advanced negotiations with a Chinese carrier for its Global Connectivity Suite (GCS), which is based on the firm’s Ku-band-based connectivity system, eXConnect.
Charles, you’ve been a busy boy (and you manage to do it while looking pretty darn snazzy)!
Check out Flight Show Daily’s article about the deal that will give Panasonic a six-strong portfolio of GCS customers.
When do we get to see the list, Panasonic?
