The system creates an e-enabled aircraft by offering fully customized, integrated communications management of flight operations, data communication services, cabin services, maintenance, diagnostics, and vital safety information, according to Arinc.
"E-enablement is the future of aviation for Cathay Pacific. Increased operational efficiency of our flights has a clear and direct impact on our continued ability to offer passengers award-winning service, as well as increased operational efficiencies across the organization," said Russell Davie, general manager of Flight Operations, Cathay Pacific.
Arnic said it worked with Cathay Pacific over a two-year operational trial to fully customize the technology. Now Cathay Pacific and its wholly owned subsidiary Dragonair are able to maintain a consistent data delivery connection between aircraft and remote host systems, the vendor added.
