HAMBURG, Germany – Panasonic Avionics Corporation unveiled its new Arc Inflight Map Platform, a 3D inflight map application and service for its NEXT and X Series inflight entertainment and connectivity (IFEC) systems.

Arc brings a wide range of new features to the traditional inflight map application by integrating it with new services from Panasonic including Loyalty (Panasonic’s personalization services), Marketplace (for onboard e-commerce), and Insights (for analytics).

Arc will be available across all inflight displays including seatback, overhead, handset, and within mobile apps and web portals.

“Arc will offer everything that our airline customers have come to expect in a contemporary map application with the addition of many innovative features and tools, made possible only through our ‘Map as a Service’ approach," said Gaston Sandoval, Vice President of Product Management and Marketing. "We believe this is one of the most exciting advances ever for inflight maps.”
