Kuwait-based low-fare carrier Jazeera Airways has selected U.S. avionics manufacturer Rockwell Collins (Stand E350) to supply avionics and in-flight entertainment (IFE) systems for 30 Airbus A320s, deliveries of which are set to start in January. The airline already operates 10 Airbus A320s, which are fitted with 165 leather seats in two classes: Jazeera class and Jazeera Plus class.

“This newest contract is a testament to the reliability of Rockwell Collins’ products,” said Stefan Pichler, Jazeera CEO. Jazeera has been a customer of the U.S. group’s avionics and in-flight entertainment systems since it launched services in 2005.
The cockpit avionics suite will include the Collins hazard detection system, traffic collision avoidance system and data-link system. The IFE system will be the company’s dPAVES product.
