The AviNet Airport network service of ARINC Incorporated, a transportation communications and systems engineering company, has been selected by China Southern Airlines, an airline in The People's Republic of China, to connect its host computer system at Beijing with international passenger operations in Australia, Japan and Korea.

China Southern Airlines said the AviNet Airport global IP network solution allows it to network traditional and up-to-date operation applications, securely and cost-effectively, via a single connection.

It will include operations at Australia's Melbourne International Airport, Japan's Kansai International and Narita International Airports and Korea's Incheon International Airport.
