Korean GLOBALink Agreements Signed with Rockwell Collins
Korea Airports Corporation (KAC) and Korea’s T’Way Air have signed two separate contracts for Rockwell Collins’ ARINC GLOBALinkSM for their air-to-ground data link communications networks.
KAC is a service provider for civil aviation and airline communications and T’Way Air is South Korea’s fastest growing airline. KAC will use ACARS for pre-departure clearance and D-ATIS messaging, utilising VDLM2 for faster, more accurate and reliable transmissions.
T’Way Air hope to enhance accuracy with their new system, using the real-time benefits of Rockwell Collins’ ARINC solution to increase operational safety.
These latest contracts now mean that all of Korea’s largest low-cost carriers are benefitting from Rockwell Collins’ ARINC GLOBALink for the transmission of communications between aircraft, ground crews and airline DCS.
Heament John Kurion, managing director of IMS for Rockwell Collins’ Asia Pacific said, “Our expertise in communications messaging combined with our understanding of the Korean market ideally positions Rockwell Collins to provide these two leading organisations with robust solutions for their aviation communications needs [and] marks another key milestone in our successful strategy to invest and grow our business in the country and throughout the region.”
