Emirates A350 fleet to fly with Thales’ AVANT Up

Emirates, one of the largest international airlines, has 50 Airbus A350-900 aircraft on order with deliveries scheduled to begin in 2024. This new fleet of A350’s will be equipped with Thales’ premier AVANT Up inflight entertainment solution to offer the finest cinematic and personalized customer experience. Thales’ IFE system will be integrated with Emirates’ preferred next generation connectivity solution.

Emirates’ award-winning entertainment system, “ice”, features over 5,000 channels of entertainment. Content will be delivered on Optiq, Thales’ new 4k QLED HDR displays. These are the only aircraft displays using Samsung’s QLED, the best technology for optimal in-seat viewing. Optiq is the first smart display in the industry to offer two Bluetooth connections, built-in Wi-Fi for passengers to pair multiple devices including phones, tablets, headphones and even game controllers, while also supporting up to 70 watts of in-screen charging for passenger devices

– 10 watts from the USB-A and 60 watts fast charging from the USB-C.

Emirates is the first airline to select Thales’ award-winning Pulse. With Pulse’s patented power management technology charging performance will be unaffected no matter how many users are charging their devices at the same time.

To enrich passenger engagement, Emirates has chosen several AVANT Up digital services. These services include highly integrated personalization features, expanded personal electronic device (PED) capabilities and user interface enhancements enabling visually impaired passengers to have an immersive experience.

Thales and Emirates continue to build on their successful collaboration to advance the future of travel. Through the partnership in Dubai’s Aviation XLab, an aviation-specific incubator, Thales and Emirates bring the passenger’s “Joy of Journey” to new heights.
