Emirates details the in-flight entertainment system chosen for the A350 fleet | New


The Middle Eastern airline Emirates will equip its next fleet of 50 Airbus A350s with a Thales in-flight entertainment system.

The Dubai-based airline said it has chosen the Thales Avant Up system for the jets, with deliveries expected to begin in 2024.

Emirates says the system includes 4K screens for its ‘ICE’ entertainment product – which offers more than 5,000 channels of content – and will include an “enhanced” solution offering a wider choice of live TV and news.

The airline says it has selected a variety of digital services for the system, including “highly integrated custom features” and expanded capabilities including fast charging and pairing of multiple personal electronic devices.

He says he aims to “enrich” the engagement, adding that the interface will allow visually impaired passengers to have an “immersive experience”.

Emirates will also use Thales’ “Pulse” power management technology, which ensures that charging performance is not affected by the number of concurrent users.

“Our investment in next-generation Thales systems for our new A350 fleet will strengthen our lead, enabling us to deliver even better experiences to our customers,” said Adel al Redha, Chief Operating Officer of Emirates.

The carrier is investing more than $350 million in the program.

Thales Avionics Executive Vice President Yannick Assouad says the airline’s customers can “expect the extraordinary” from the new system.
