Vistara to feature panasonic’s arc 3d inflight map application- world’s first 

Vistara Airlines has upgraded the map application in its inflight entertainment (IFE) system and launched Arc, Panasonic Avionics’ new, state-of-the-art, 3D inflight map application on its Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner aircraft. The mapping platform will be progressively made available on the airline’s brand new A321neo aircraft as well.

Arc will be available in all cabins – in the overhead monitors, seatback screens, video handsets as well as on passengers’ mobile devices connected to the inflight Wi-Fi. Vistara passengers will now be able to choose from over 20 distinct map views in 4K for various phases of flight, incorporating everything from stunning 3D satellite imagery, local and global views, down to a personalized feature that enables passengers to see the aircraft’s relative position to their selected map location throughout their flight.

Commenting on the addition of this yet another differentiating feature to their onboard experience, Vinod Kannan, Vistara’s Chief Commercial Officer said: “Inflight entertainment plays an extremely important role in the overall experience of flying with an airline, especially on a long flight. Our partnership with Panasonic has helped us in bringing state-of-the-art IFE systems and satellite connectivity to our customers. We are delighted to make this cutting-edge application a part of the award-winning Vistara experience in our continuous effort to maximize customer delight.”

Andrew Mohr, Vice President of Digital Services and Solutions for Panasonic Avionics Corporation said: “We are delighted by this opportunity to partner with Vistara on the launch of Arc on their Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner aircraft. Arc represents a new generation of map technology, perfectly tuned to take advantage of our latest IFE hardware”
