ARINC Launches New Flight Information System for Vehicles

ARINC Managed Services (AMS) launched its newest flight information technology, microFIDS mobile, according to a March 12 company press release.

The new solution allows airport shuttle bus companies, car rental companies and other passenger fleet operators to install flight information displays inside their vehicles.

MicroFIDS mobile also features an integrated GPS system, allowing the information displayed to change based on whether the vehicle is travelling to or from the airport.

"Providing live flight information to customers in transit offers peace-of-mind and eliminates surprises upon arrival at the terminal," said Christopher Forrest, managing director at AMS. "It's another way to take uncertainty and stress out of the travel experience."

    Next step: automatic integration of flight arrival information with counter automation systems. It would help with availability planning and no-show/walkup preparedness and availability.
