Air France benefits from Thales

THALES, the French electronic company, has used the introduction of the first Air France A380 to highlight the significant role it is playing regarding the aircraft both at the front end and for the passengers.  Its technology can be found throughout the aircraft’s avionics system, covering navigation, flight controls, electrical power and utilities such as braking and door management systems.  Within the cabin, the company provides state-of-the-art lighting and the in-flight entertainment.  This includes 100 on-demand movies, 300 audio CDs, 26 games, live camera, flight information map, in-seat chat and a customised menu option for children.  Every seat has a USB socket, enabling passengers to download flight schedules, destinations guides and games for children. www.thalesgroup.com
