The head of ARINC Direct said that the growing demand for large and long-range aircraft makes the Middle East a “fertile ground” for the company’s communication systems, according to a Flight Global article.
James Hardie, director of Arinc Direct, the data communications group’s business aviation division, said “we are delighted to be expanding our portfolio of services and resources in readiness for the growth.”
He added the company’s capabilities allow it to support “the widest cross-section of customers.”

ARINC Direct currently offers three services via its connect communications system.
The services utilize the Iridium or Inmarsat satellite networks and include aircraft communications addressing and reporting system messaging via an Apple iPad app, high-quality voice using an iPhone or Android device; and managed email.
The company also released ADConnect, an app for worldwide internet access for business travelers.
ARINC is partnering with FlightAware to develop more web-based live aircraft tracking software.
