East Asian carrier Singapore Airlines said it has taken to the skies with its first of eight new Boeing (NYSE: BA) 777-300ERs equipped with Panasonic Avionics Corp's broadband Wi-Fi mobile phone service and in-flight entertainment experience.
With partners Deutsche Telekom and AeroMobile, Panasonic will deliver broadband Wi-Fi, mobile data and services, and passengers will use their own devices to connect to their social networks, access real-time news and information, and communicate with their family, friends and co-workers.

Enabled by high performance 24-inch, 18-inch and 11-inch high-definition displays, SIA's KrisWorld system will feature Panasonic's open platform technology that delivers a more personal experience and intuitive navigation similar to tablets and smartphones, including multi-tasking using the video touch screen handset as a "second screen."
