Vistara is World’s First Airline to Feature Panasonic’s Arc 3D Map App

Vistara has upgraded the map application in its inflight entertainment (IFE) system and launched Arc, Panasonic Avionics’ new, state-of-the-art, 3D inflight map application on its Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner aircraft.

The map platform will be progressively made available on the airline’s brand new A321neo aircraft as well.

As the launch customer of Arc, Vistara is the world’s first airline to offer this immersive inflight map experience to customers that brings a wide range of innovations to the traditional inflight map application, while expanding the concept into a fully integrated experience within the IFE and connectivity system.  

Arc will be available in all cabins, in the overhead monitors, seatback screens, video handsets as well as on passengers’ mobile devices connected to the inflight Wi-Fi. Vistara passengers will now be able to choose from over 20 distinct map views in 4K for various phases of flight, incorporating everything from stunning 3D satellite imagery, local and global views, down to a personalised feature that enables passengers to see the aircraft’s relative position to their selected map location throughout their flight.  

More equally engaging features such as the Kids Map and street map views will be introduced in a subsequent release. 

Commenting on the addition of this yet another differentiating feature to their onboard experience, Vinod Kannan, Vistara’s Chief Commercial Officer said: “Our partnership with Panasonic has helped us in bringing state-of-the-art IFE systems and satellite connectivity to our customers. Arc, with trailblazing capabilities, will not only help us keep our customers engaged on their flights, but also open up a whole new medium for us to interact with them. We are delighted to make this cutting-edge application a part of the award-winning Vistara experience in our continuous effort to maximise customer delight.”
