Flight Focus’s Managing Director, Mr. Ralf Cabos, yesterday said "We are delighted to be working with Dutch Antilles Express - our first customer in the Caribbean, to implement the Flight Focus PLATFORM across their entire fleet of aircraft, and adding value to their operation. We have the complete end-to-end solutions in place to support DAE’s growing fleet of aircraft, and with our regionally based staff and 24/7 support network we look forward to a long and successful relationship. With the global reach and cost benefits of Iridium®, the Flight Crew of DAE will have a real time messaging and alerting system that helps to support proactive decision making processes and maintain excellent on-time performance".

Dutch Antilles Express President & CEO Mr Arnold Leonora, who was in Miami with Flight Focus to sign the agreement, said "As a fast growing airline in the region, we wanted a proven EFB solution that helps us to streamline our operations, support flight safety, and one that adds value to both DAE and to our customers.
