Cedar Rapids-based Rockwell Collins plans to acquire a Texas company that provides trip planning services. The AR Group owns several companies, including Air Routing International which is based in Houston.
Air Routing has 240 employees and caters to business flights, providing a wide array of services like route planning to avoid bad weather and getting the right permits for international destinations. The company also makes fuel arrangements.
A Rockwell Collins news release describes Air Routing as the “premier provider of trip support services for business aircraft.” Rockwell Collins executives expect the acquisition to be completed in about 40 days, but specific dollar amounts on this transction aren’t being disclosed.
