Cathay Pacific chooses ARINC to implement fleetwide e-Enabled aircraft program
ARINC Incorporated announced that Cathay Pacific Airways will implement an advanced information management system into its full fleet of Airbus and Boeing aircraft. ARINC’s communications solution creates a true “e-Enabled aircraft” by offering fully-customized, integrated communications management of flight operations, data communication services, cabin services, maintenance, diagnostics, and vital safety information. Cathay Pacific worked closely with ARINC over a two-year operational trial to fully customize the technology in order to effectively maximize operational benefits and reduce costs. Cathay Pacific and its wholly owned subsidiary Dragonair now have the capability to select the most cost-effective communications connectivity for the aircraft and maintain a consistent data delivery connection between aircraft and remote host systems.
