TAP Air Portugal has selected in-flight entertainment and connectivity systems from Panasonic Avionics for a fleet of Airbus A321LRs.

Panasonic says that the contract covers line-fit installation of its X-series IFE equipment on 14 A321LRs to provide passengers with an "immersive home-theatre entertainment experience".

Passengers will also benefit from in-flight wi-fi, with bandwidth 20 times greater than on previous systems, says Panasonic.



TAP received its first A321LR in April. The aircraft is configured to accommodated 171 passengers: 16 in full-flat business-class seats, 48 in premium economy and 107 in economy.

Panasonic IFE equipment is also installed on TAP's A330neo fleet.
