Tailwind 500/550 in-flight TV coverage expands to India and Russia
Rockwell Collins’ Tailwind 500 and Tailwind 550 multi-region Direct Broadcast Satellite TV (DBS TV) systems can now offer regional free-to-air TV access for India and Russia. The two systems are the first to offer business jet travellers coverage for these regions.
“This is an important milestone for Rockwell Collins as we continue to make our Tailwind TV solutions attractive to customers in more regions,” said Steve Timm, vice-president and general manager, information management systems for Rockwell Collins. “We look forward to delivering the new capabilities of our information and entertainment offerings to an increasingly global customer base."
The expanded coverage for India is available immediately, and Russian coverage will be available in August 2009.
