 [Avionics Today 11-10-2015] Royal Jordanian Airlines is now using Rockwell Collins’ ARINC Globalink to provide primary communications for its fleet of aircraft. The airline, based in Amman, provides service to Europe, Asia, Africa, North America, and throughout the Middle East.

“We fly extensively across desert and oceanic routes, so we needed a communications network with global coverage,” said Royal Jordanian’s President and CEO Captain Suleiman Obeidat. “Our aircraft are High Frequency Data Link (HFDL) enabled, and the Rockwell Collins ARINC GLOBALink offering includes HF connectivity. Overall, we found the suite of Rockwell Collins’ solutions to be extremely cost effective and capable of meeting our expansion strategy.”
Royal Jordanian is using Rockwell Collins’ entire suite of ARINC GLOBALink services, including Very High Frequency (VHF), Satellite Communications (Satcom) and HFDL to meet the airline’s diverse range of aviation communication needs. The airline is also using Rockwell Collins OpCenter Web-based messaging solution and future plans call for the implementation of the company’s Web Aircraft Situational Display (WebASD) to enable global flight tracking.
