- Aircraft for medium- and short-range aircraft (narrow-body) to long-range aircraft (wide-body)
Reducing the weight of inflight systems
- Aircrafts consume more fuel than other modes of transportation.
Inflight entertainment system Astrova
- Revised the design of the conventional system and optimized the functional configuration
- Modular design that allows only necessary equipment to be replaced
As a leader in the inflight entertainment systems industry
The International Air Transport Association (IATA) has set a target of net-zero CO2 emissions by 2050. For over 40 years, PAC has leveraged its knowledge and technological expertise to provide solutions to airlines worldwide and will promote environmental sustainability with products that cater to airlines and passengers, utilizing our expertise and experience.
Contributing to the reduction of fuel consumption of aircrafts
Our latest inflight entertainment system Astrova has realized an advanced inflight experience and reduced environmental impact. Astrova combines a 4K screen, high-performance audio, and USB-C to deliver the next generation of passenger experiences, as well as a redesign of the previous system to optimize functional configuration.This reduces the system weight by up to 30% compared to conventional PAC systems, reduces aircraft fuel consumption, and contributes to the reduction of CO2 emissions in the aviation industry.
In addition, the modular design allows only the necessary parts to be replaced, making it possible to adapt to future technologies by replacing only some equipment without replacing the entire system. This extends product life, reduces waste, and eases upgrades and maintenance, helping airlines make effective use of resources. We will continue to focus on further weight reduction and performance improvement of all systems using the latest technology, aiming to realize a sustainable society through climate change initiatives in the aviation industry.
