Air China has picked Panasonic Avionics to equip its incoming Airbus A350-900s with inflight entertainment and connectivity.

Under the deal, Panasonic will install its eX3 inflight entertainment system on the Chinese carrier's 10 -900s, the first of which will be delivered in December.

"Because the airline's route structure includes very long flights to all seven continents, it needed an IFEC solution that would help keep passengers entertained and offer new opportunities to generate revenue," says Panasonic chief executive Hideo Nakano.

Flight Fleets Analyzer shows that Air China has 10 -900s on order.
