Aeromexico has added live television to its Boeing 787-8 Dreamliner aircraft.
This new service will initially offer two channels - Sport 24 for live sporting action from around the world, and CNN International.
In partnership with Panasonic Avionics, the service will be available to passengers from both the seatback inflight entertainment and communications system and on their own personal electronic devices.
Sport 24, owned and operated by IMG, offers live coverage of the world’s most popular sporting events.
The channel shows live action from the Premier League, NFL, UEFA Champions League, NBA, Bundesliga, Formula 1, MotoGP, and the Ryder Cup.
Antonio Fernandez, Aeromexico vice president, product design and service standards said: “At Aeromexico, we are always looking for new ways to keep our passengers happy and entertained, and there’s nothing quite like live television.
“Our clients will now be able to stay current on world events and also watch their favourite athletes and teams compete in real time at 35,000 feet.”
Aeromexico will begin rolling out the service in August in four of its nine Boeing 787-8 Dreamliner , the most modern aircraft in the world, that operates to Tijuana within Mexico and to international destinations such as Buenos Aires, London, Los Angeles, Madrid, New York, Paris, Shanghai, Santiago and Tokyo.
