Aeronautical Radio of Thailand Ltd (AEROTHAI), has extended its partnership with Collins Aerospace Systems to offer its GlobalConnect managed digital services in Asia, to airlines with Airbus A320 and A330 aircraft.
GlobalConnect gives airlines access to wireless movement of both Flight Operations Quality Assurance (FOQA) data and Maintenance Operations Quality Assurance (MOQA) data. It also supports ACARS over Internet Protocol (IP) and an enabled Electronic Flight Bag to reduce pilot workload.
“As overall air traffic growth in Asia continues to accelerate, GlobalConnect will play a key role in helping airlines in the region move towards more digital operations to accommodate increased demand,” said Clotilde Enel-Réhel, general manager for Commercial Aviation & Network Services for Collins Aerospace. “This solution goes beyond just creating a connected aircraft – it creates a connected ecosystem by seamlessly uniting the data flow between the aircraft, the airline and ground applications.”
