The Calgary-based flight technology firm said it will install seven of its AFIRS 220 systems and 12 next-generation AFIRS 228B systems on Boeing aircraft.
"We are extremely pleased to welcome this Canadian operator as a new customer,'' vice-president Matt Bradley said in a statement.
"With this addition, our Canadian customer list is now at eight airlines. The airline has indicated to us that our technology will add significant value to their operation and reinforce their commitment to safety and efficiency.''
The systems allow airlines to monitor aircraft operations and data in real time through the Iridium satellite communications system. They track such information as engine trending, airframe and engine exceedances, and Out, Off, On and In times.
