Tenzing, ARINC Join On Satellite-based E-Mail Service
Tenzing Communications and ARINC have signed an agreement to provide airlines with in-flight email connectivity via satellite. Airlines that want to enable their aircraft for e-mail can do so by installing Tenzing’s software onto their existing onboard LAN infrastructures. ARINC performs the Internet Service Provider (ISP) role for passengers, integrating with the Tenzing application and managing the billing, customer care, and assignment of e-mail accounts where needed. This provides airlines with an end- to-end solution for in-flight e-mail services to passengers.
