Rockwell Collins introduces new ARINCDirect
Rockwell Collins introduced its new ARINCDirect suite of flight support services for business aviation. The new ARINCDirect consolidates and integrates the company’s former Ascend Flight Information Solutions and ARINC Direct services into one industry-leading solution for flight planning, regional and international trip support, cabin connectivity and flight operations management. “With our acquisition of ARINC in December of 2013, we recognized that we had two portfolios of flight support services from two great companies, each with best-in-class solutions,” said Jeff Standerski, senior vice president, Information Management Services for Rockwell Collins. “By combining the best of Ascend and ARINC Direct, business aviation operators can now experience the single most comprehensive portfolio of flight support solutions in the industry, along with the reliable performance, industry-leading technical expertise and outstanding customer service they expect — all from a brand they have come to know and trust.” Through the new ARINCDirect, Rockwell Collins will offer its more than 3,500 flight support services customers around the globe the latest in intuitive flight planning using state-of-the-art online and mobile platforms; award-winning regional and international trip support; comprehensive weather services; a full spectrum of cabin connectivity options; and flexible and integrated flight operations and scheduling services.
