Seattle-based Tenzing Communications announced a partnership with avionics manufacturer Baker Electronics to develop e-mail and information services for corporate aviation. Called CabinLink, the service is distributed by Baker through the company’s onboard LAN server. In addition to e-mail, users will be offered updated news, sports and other information through the service. The first installations of CabinLink will be on a Dassault Falcon 900, said Tenzing. Based in Seattle, the company has signed agreements with Airbus and a number of airlines for interactive communications services, including e-mail, aboard airliners.
