ARINC EMEA grows business in Russia


ARINC EMEA grows business in RussiaThe Russian market has become increasingly important for ARINC EMEA which is widening its reach in the region, supporting airlines, airports and business aviation clientele. It recently invested in a series of specialist workshops to highlight how its solutions can help aviation businesses in Russia realise their full potential.

Over 80 delegates attended seminars at the British Embassy in Moscow to learn more about ARINC's flight planning and communications expertise, airport solutions, messaging services, advances in security intelligence and the range of products and services under its ARINC Direct business aviation arm.

ARINC currently provides services for 250 check-in desks and departure gates at three of the four passenger terminals at Russia's Sheremetyevo International Airport, the country's second largest. Since 2008 it has also been providing services to 24 check-in desks and departure gates at Ufa International Airport. ARINC's data link is now utilized by nearly every commercial airline, including Russia's Aeroflot, with whom ARINC has enjoyed a 10-year-plus relationship.

ARINC Direct reports a growing number of direct and indirect Russian customers (aircraft tails that are owned by Russian companies or individuals but are registered elsewhere and operated via management companies based in Europe). ARINC also runs a number of VHF data link ground stations in Russia which support major airports and extend coverage to support trans-Siberian flights for VHF communications. In addition it has an HF data link radio station at Krasnoyarsk, providing complete ACARS coverage of all Russia's airports and airways.

As the regulatory environment eases for business aviation, ARINC Direct is confident about seeing fruitful business in Russia. ARINC Direct has added Russian aircraft for flight planning, including a Yak 42 for one operator, and has the capability to build relatively quickly to support any aircraft, given the data.
