DAC International, a Greenwich AeroGroup company, announced today that it is collaborating with Cathay Pacific Airways on its e-Enabled Aircraft Program. The Federal Aviation Administration approved the Supplemental Type Certificate for the Cathay Pacific e-Enabled Aircraft Program, and DAC International is providing the Gen-X e-Enabling AID device, selected by Cathay Pacific Airways and Dragonair for their fleet-wide aircraft implementation.

The second generation Gen-X system was specifically developed by DAC International to meet the stringent requirements of the Cathay Pacific program. The system will be installed in the flight deck and cabin to support a wide range of applications including: system interfaces to the aircraft navigation systems, EFB functionality for charts and aircraft documentation, communication system interfaces for text messaging, maintenance support, e-Commerce applications as well as cabin applications for in-flight services.

“We are honored to be part of the team that is implementing the most advanced e-Enabled solution in the airline industry,” said General Manager of DAC International Francisco Hernandez. “The Gen-X e-Enabling AID is a very cost effective solution that incorporates the latest processing technology and is designed to support an e-Enabling solution well into the future.”

Hernandez added that DAC International has already begun delivering units. The Gen-X e-Enabling AID will be installed on Cathay Pacific Boeing 777, 747/400F/-8F, Airbus A320/1 and A330 aircraft.
