TCS World Travel selects Rockwell Collins to provide onboard broadband connectivity

  • Boeing 757 now operational with Rockwell Collins' CabinConnect in-flight connectivity solution
  • Customized solution ensures fast, reliable in-flight connectivity for global luxury excursions

Guests aboard curated journeys with TCS World Travel, the world leader in all-inclusive private jet expeditions for nearly 25 years, can now experience the fastest global, broadband, in-flight connectivity available following an agreement recently signed with Rockwell Collins, a leading provider of information management solutions for the aviation industry.

TCS World Travel has installed Rockwell Collins’ CabinConnect™ wireless in-flight connectivity system on its custom-configured Boeing 757, operated by TAG Aviation. The fully operational system was launched on August 9, 2017 when 50 guests departed for a 23-day trip across Eurasia.

“Our brand is about redefining luxury travel by providing highly personalized, enriching experiences for our guests from the comfort and convenience of our private jets,” said Shelley Cline, TCS World Travel president. “We chose Rockwell Collins for cabin connectivity because we needed a dependable solution that will keep our guests connected almost anywhere in the world.”

Through the new service, TCS World Travel guests can use an aircraft-provided iPad® or their own devices to check email or browse the internet in flight, as well as access news, sports and weather information with a reliable connection that is similar to the quality and speed they experience when on the ground. The TCS World Travel system includes Rockwell Collins’ Airshow® Mobile for Browsers, a 2D moving map system that keeps pace with guests wherever they fly.

“Rockwell Collins was able to customize the system to interface with our onboard lecture system,” continued Cline. “This allows our guests to receive a live presentation from a travel expert about an upcoming destination that is broadcast to interested guests via the provided onboard iPads.”

“As a leading aircraft communications and service provider, we worked closely with TCS World Travel to understand their individual needs and requirements, and were able to outfit their aircraft with an operational system in just seven months,” said Alexis Hickox, head of Business Development, Cabin Solutions for Rockwell Collins. “Bringing together our aviation expertise with our knowledge of the Inmarsat Global Xpress (GX) network has enabled us to provide TCS World Travel with a service that is very much in line with their mission of creating unforgettable travel experiences for their guests.”
