The TopSeries AVANT system is distinguished for advanced technologies such as high definition video, solid state hard drives and faster processors.

For connectivity, the Thales cabin communications network supports swift broadband capabilities for GSM, Wi-Fi Internet and integrated in-flight entertainment applications. The TopConnect solution integrates OnAir® as the communications service provider, further expanding the relationship between OnAir and Thales.
Royal Jordanian President/CEO Eng. Amer Hadidi said: “Introducing the B787 to the fleet is a major part of the RJ fleet modernization. They will significantly enable RJ to broaden its long-haul network; this has led RJ to invest in the entertainment services offered to passenger on board. Through our proud partnership with Thales, our passengers will experience an advanced IFE system along with superior comfort as they fly with Royal Jordanian.”
“Royal Jordanian is a long-time Thales customer and we are very pleased to be part of their Boeing 787 program. We anticipate that our new system and proven experience with Swift broadband connectivity will be well received by both the airline and their passengers.” said Alan Pellegrini, Chief Executive Officer for the Thales In-Flight Entertainment and Connectivity business.
