Arinc Direct (stand575) has added a new local dialling option to its ground-to-air telephone service for business aircraft operators basedoutside the USA.

The service, branded Direct Dial International, allows subscribers to place phone calls directly to their aircraft by dialling a telephone number that is local to them. Previously, customers had to dial a number local to the USA.

Direct Dial International is available immediately to customers in 75 countries and "hundreds of metropolitan areas around the globe, including much of Europe", says Arinc Direct, a Carlyle Group-owned provider of flight planning, weather, flight following, contract fuel and international trip support services.
