Rockwell Collins intends to buy AR Group and its affiliated companies including Air Routing International, which provides business aircraft flight departments with trip planning services.

Houston-based Air Routing also provides online access to its flight support tools, including weather services, flight planning services, fuel arrangements, international trip handling and concierge services.

"The acquisition of Air Routing will broaden our information management and aftermarket services offerings. Air Routing's strong customer relationships, flight operations support services and trusted agent network complement our information management strategy to deliver enhanced value to business aircraft operators," Rockwell Collins chairman, president and CEO Clay Jones says in a statement.

The transaction is expected to close in roughly 40 days pending regulatory and other approvals. Rockwell Collins will acquire all outstanding shares of AR Group and its affiliated companies.

Financial terms of the deal were not released.
