Oman Air has selected Rockwell Collins' Tailwind 560 in-flight TV system for a fleet of seven Airbus A330s with delivery starting July 2009.
The Tailwind 560 is the only proven and certified multi-region Direct Broadcast Satellite (DBS) airborne TV system available for the air transport market.

'Our goal is to surpass our passengers' expectations when flying with Oman Air. Entertainment and connectivity to the fast-changing world while flying forms a major element of our commitment to our passengers,' said Barry Brown, vice president, Commercial, for Oman Air. 'The Rockwell Collins Tailwind 560 enables us to provide our passengers with real-time news, movies and sports television programming.'

'The Tailwind 560 was developed to specifically meet the air transport market's high performance requirements and is unmatched with its multi-region capabilities.' said Tommy Dodson, vice president and general manager, Cabin Systems for Rockwell Collins. 'We're pleased to be selected by Oman Air for this program, and we look forward to working with them to deliver real-time entertainment to their customers.'

The Tailwind 560 can be integrated into existing or new in-flight entertainment system. It receives KU-band DBS television signals and provides access to the full spectrum of digital video and audio programming available from DBS satellites. The system takes these signals, automatically decodes them to the correct broadcast format, and then distributes them to the aircraft's onboard IFE system. With the Tailwind 560, passengers can access the most comprehensive selection of live TV programming, whether it is a live football match while flying from London to Muscat, catching the stock market recap while on the way to Mumbai or watching the evening news on a flight from Bangkok.
