Aircraft Maintenance Messaging Solutions ProvidersBintan Island, a 1,030 sq kilometer island off the coast of Singapore in the Riau Islands province could soon be home to a new aircraft maintenance hub with plans to develop tourism and industry to the area. The plan is part of a joint venture between Singapore-based Gallant Venture investment firm and Garuda Maintenance facility AeroAsia.

The companies are committed to the venture, having signed a ‘memorandum of understanding’ only last week at the Singapore Air Show. They said that the island’s existing airport is large enough for the development of a multi-terminal facility with two runways.

The plans include the stationing of Emirsyah airlines regional fleet in Bintan which will enable the venture to target tourism and the business industry.

Aircraft maintenance will form a large part of the new venture, recognising the importance of a dedicated maintenance facility in the area. Reliable aircraft maintenance provision and type b messaging will enhance operational productivity, reducing lost time on the ground and minimising potential delays.

message handling systemPort Moresby, as the main site for Papua New Guinea Air Services, is to serve other airports in Papua New Guinea and in Brisbane, Australia as a message hub with its new, fully operational and ICAO compliant message handling system.

The message handling system, deployed by COMSOFT will bring Papua New Guinea Air Services, (PNGAS), provider of air navigation services, the ability to reinforce the aeronautical message handling system connections with other countries, such as New Zealand, Australia, Fiji & Indonesia who also operate the COMSOFT message handling system.

This is great news for PNGAS, who have been eager to introduce the message handling system technology in Papua New Guinea as, due to the nature of the terrain, air travel is key to the country’s economy.

With the message handling system, operators will be able to access critical flight information; NOTAMs, weather data and flight plans.

Aviation message handling system operations are crucial to safe and efficient flight management and offer solutions to airlines of all sizes.  Aviation messaging providers, such as COMSOFT & ARINC can bring these key solutions closer for compliance with ICAO regulations.
