Over the years, Emirates has significantly invested to equip its aircraft with connectivity. Demand for Wi-Fi on board has been steadily increasing and today over 800,000 passengers per month connect while inflight. The partnership with Thales and Inmarsat will give Emirates customers best in class connectivity on its Boeing 777X aircraft due for delivery starting in 2020.
Emirates and Thales have recently contracted to fit Emirates’ Boeing 777X fleet with the latest generation Thales AVANT inflight entertainment system.
The new agreement is part of the Emirates and Thales’s plans to develop  a state-of-the-art inflight entertainment and connectivity (IFEC) for the 777X fleet and boost Emirates’ award-winning inflight passenger experience.
“At Thales we are committed to build on our partnership with Emirates, through technological innovation, digital expertise and big data management; our teams are dedicated to enhancing Emirates’ inflight experience leadership position. Thales is focused on continuously helping Emirates drive the highest standards of innovation from in-seat entertainment to wireless cabin connectivity,” said Dominique Giannoni, CEO of Thales InFlyt Expereince.
