ARINC Incorporated today announced that long term customer LOT Polish Airlines has chosen ARINC's GLOBALink ACARS data link programme to provide the airline with the timely, accurate information that it depends on every day for its new Boeing 787 Dreamliner aircraft.

LOT Polish Airlines is the flag carrier of Poland and is the first European operator of the Boeing 787 Dreamliner.  The new Boeing 787 incorporates several changes in the way passenger jets are designed, including greater use of electrical systems that save weight compared with older hydraulics.

The airline currently uses ARINC's ACARS data link services for faster, more comprehensive and more reliable operational messaging. Under the new agreement, ARINC will integrate the 787 data link programme into ARINC's data link Management System - OpCenter, allowing seamless operation with LOT's existing fleet. GLOBALink ACARS will enable LOT to operate its aircraft more efficiently and give it more visibility into how its aircraft are performing by maintaining critical, automated, real-time messaging between the flight crew and its maintenance organization.

"ARINC has been providing LOT with industry leading technology for over a decade," notes Tomasz Balcerzak, Board Member for Operations and Maintenance at LOT Polish Airlines. "We are pleased with the entire portfolio of ARINC services and look forward to many future years of working together."

"We are delighted to support our valued customer LOT Polish Airlines as they bring new benefits to their passengers through the introduction of the 787 fleet," said Alexis Hickox, Senior Director, Aviation Solutions, at ARINC EMEA. "We believe the cost saving benefits they have received from using ACARS in the past will prove equally compelling in the future."
