It has been announced that Japan Airlines has made its largest deployment of Rockwell Collins' ARINC AviNet across 50 of its domestic and international airport locations in a bid to manage significant growth in the Asia-Pacific region.
'This is the largest network deployment for JAL and one of the largest in the Asia-Pac region,' said Mr. Jun Sato, director of Planning and Promotion, Passenger System Planning for Japan Airlines. 'The global reach of Rockwell Collins' ARINC network and strong customer service with many in-region airports will be invaluable for keeping our airports communicating and operating at the highest efficiency.'
Robust, proven connectivity
ARINC AviNet provides robust, proven connectivity from an airport's common-use passenger processing system (CUPPS) to the departure control system (DCS), enabling increased cost-effectivity and cost-sharing applications over the largest private wide-area network. Airlines enjoy an enhanced check-in system using common-use terminal equipment and the streamlined system offers increased operational productivity with faster processing times to improve passenger experience.
The Rockwell Collins team worked closely with Japan Airlines and the individual airports involved in the rollout to complete the deployment ahead of schedule, including comprehensive systems integration and a reduction in network lag time.
'AviNet Airport will enable JAL to check-in passengers using the new DCS at each of their international airports while seamlessly migrating over from JAL's legacy system, minimising downtime,' said Paul Hickox, director of Global Network Solutions for Rockwell Collins. 'We are pleased in JAL's confidence in our solutions and our commitment to developing AviNet Airport as a versatile system to meet their growing needs.'
