Vueling has renewed its communications contract with ARINC to receive the latter’s ACARS data link and OpCenter message management service.
ARINC has been Vueling’s preferred supplier since the airline was established in 2004. The new agreement makes ARINC the carrier’s exclusive datalink provider and includes service commitments supporting growth from Vueling’s 2009 merger and recent route expansions.
The new agreement provides Vueling with ARINC’s ACARS datalink service, Type B messaging and connectivity, and ARINC’s OpCenter solution. OpCenter integrates datalink information across the enterprise, and enables real-time automatic data processing to support Vueling’s expanded fleet of 47 aircraft and 24/7 flight operations.
“Through our recent expansion, we have come to rely on ARINC to help us maximise productivity and efficiency at optimum cost,” remarked Albert Pérez Subirós, Vueling’s manager of engineering and planning. “We are very pleased at their ability to assist in our growth while keeping a sharp focus on cost control and the bottom line.”
