Aer Lingus Renews Pact with ARINC

By Tish Drake | July 2, 2007

ARINC said it won a three-year contract renewal with Irish airline Aer Lingus to provide the airline with ARINC's GLOBALink VHF aircraft communications addressing and reporting systems (ACARS) data link serive and GLOBALink satellite communications. Terms of the deal were not disclosed. The Dublin-based airline said as passenger volumes have increased, so have data transmission volumes. “Our low-cost business model places strategic emphasis on efficiency whilst driving down our cost base,” said Enda Corneille, Aer Lingus Commercial Director. The airline will expand to three new U.S. routes in 2007—San Francisco, Orlando, and Washington Dulles.
