PARIS: Alafco opts for Rockwell Collins avionics on A320 neo fleet
Kuwait aircraft leasing and finance company Alafco has selected a suite of Rockwell Collins avionics for its order of 85 A320 nEO aircraft
The package includes MultiScan ThreatTrack weather radar and Multi Mode Receiver (MMR). Alafco is also planning on featuring Rockwell Collins’ PAVES overhead broadcast and PAVES wireless content distribution IFE system when deliveries will begin in 2017.
“The avionics suite we’ve developed for Alafco will deliver unprecedented capabilities in surveillance and navigation to its growing global customer base,” said Claude Alber, vice president and managing director, Europe, Middle East and Africa for Rockwell Collins. “Customers that opt to take advantage of our wireless and IFE systems will have access to faster onboard connectivity due to the wireless system’s ability to accommodate more than 200 passengers, as well as a variety of entertainment and information options.”
