Air Canada, the country’s largest domestic and international airline, has renewed a three-year agreement with Rockwell Collins for the provision of its ARINC Managed Services (AMS) radio support services for ground handling operations.
Through the agreement, 24×7 on-site technical support will be provided for the UHF ground-based communications and radio equipment for the management of the airline’s ground handling operations. Also, repair and response time is expected to be improved for the airline’s depot maintenance facility that provides centralised inventory, parts and spares management.
Rockwell Collins’ ARINC Managed Services Managing Director, Mr Kenneth Schreder said, “We’ve been providing Air Canada with fully managed radio services since 2005. The extension of the agreement is a key milestone with our relationship with them and demonstrates our ability to provide comprehensive, cost-effective radio support service for airlines throughout the region.”
Rockwell Collins’ ARINC physical airport security services continue to deliver consistent enhanced security and communications solutions to facilities with seamlessly reliable technology.
“As Canada’s largest domestic and international airline, our ground-to-ground communications are a critical part of ensuring our flights depart on time and safely,” said Derwin Cady, manager of Airport Technology and Product Development for Air Canada. “Air Canada has consolidated our radio support with Rockwell Collins’ ARINC Managed Services, which saves us time and money by having a single, knowledgeable point of contact for all of our maintenance needs.”
