During the 2012 NBAA Meeting & Convention next week, ARINC Direct (Booth No N2155) will announce a new partnership with FlightAware to provide enhanced live flight tracking information as a further evolution to its suite of business aviation services. Effective immediately ARINC Direct, the leading global aviation software and data services provider, will exchange information with FlightAware to provide customers with a secure and customized FlightAware interface on ARINC Direct’s website.
FlightAware was the first in the market to offer web-based flight tracking of private and commercial aircraft. Today it boasts the largest flight tracking website in the world with over three million users. ARINC Direct customers will now seamlessly be able to benefit from access to FlightAware’s live web-based flight tracking and fleet maps, including streaming live flight and map updates, worldwide enroute navigation data and a host of other maps and overlays. Messaging the aircraft, worldwide position and flight plan display, arrival and departure information, flight history and airport delay information are also included.
“We’ve been working with FlightAware over the past several months to combine their sophisticated aircraft tracking algorithms and display with ARINC Direct’s datalink and flight plan information. We’re very excited about this new partnership, as it will enable us to deliver many more flight tracking features and improved aircraft location/event notifications and alerts, including enhanced support for mobile devices” said Steve Corfman, ARINC Direct Sr. Manager.
Daniel Baker, CEO of FlightAware, commented, "We are very proud to partner with ARINC Direct, the largest provider of flight operations services to business aviation aircraft operators. We are confident that their customers will really benefit from FlightAware's industry-leading flight
tracking technology for live, worldwide flight tracking which supports and streamlines their flight operations."
ARINC Direct customers will be provided with worldwide flight tracking on a customized FlightAware display. The current “Track Flights” service on ARINC Direct’s website will be completely replaced with the FlightAware powered tracker.
