"American Airlines has partnered with Thales since 2011. Over the years, our exceptional collaboration and innovations have resulted in the highly successful deliveries of 213 B737 and A320 family of aircraft with Thales IFE solutions,” said Philippe Carette, CEO, Thales InFlyt Experience. “American Airlines has trusted Thales as the inflight entertainment partner for these new 787-8 aircraft. This award further demonstrates Thales’s commitment in supporting the airline’s ambitions to provide their guests the best onboard experience.”

Thales’ AVANT IFE system features a highly customizable passenger experience with a robust selection of features and applications. With its sleek and lightweight design, Thales’s high performing AVANT IFE solution will provide travelers an exceptional inflight experience with a vast choice of entertainment during their flight.

The new high capacity server for the AVANT IFE solution has evolved to store an impressive catalog of HD movies, TV show episodes and music albums. Main Cabin seats will be equipped with 10” screens and Premium Economy seats will have 12” Fit High Definition (HD) screens providing a brilliant viewing experience.

American’s Flagship Business passengers will enjoy full HD 17” Flex screens, integrating Avii, touch passenger media unit, a handheld device offering an intuitive navigation and second screen experience.

Thales and American Airlines began their partnership in 2011 when Thales was first selected to equip their future B737 and A320 family deliveries. This long standing relationship with the airline has supported the delivery of 213 single aisle aircraft with Thales’s inflight entertainment solutions.
