has become South Korea’s first low cost carrier to adopt SITAOnAir’s
Aircom FlightTracker solution.
Aircom FlightTracker, deployed across Jeju Air’s fleet of
29 Boeing 737s, gathers data from multiple global
sources, filling in any gaps between terrestrial tracking
to help improve flight operations.
Aircom FlightTracker can deliver this service
using equipment already present on most aircraft, without the need
for modifications or additional avionics.
The Jeju Air and
SITAOnAir Aircom solutions agreement will also see the airline’s
fleet upgraded with SITAOnAir’s FlightMessenger, which ensures seamless, intelligent cockpit communications.
FlightMessenger achieves this by integrating and translating
cockpit data into a format feeding directly into airlines’
pre-existing IT infrastructure, improving data communication efficiency and effectiveness.
Kim Sanghoon, Director of
Operations Control Center at Jeju Air, said, “Jeju Air selected SITAOnAir’s Aircom FlightTracker and FlightMessenger after
extensively evaluating the full range of products on the market.
SITAOnAir’s solutions appealed to us for their rich functionality,
seamless integration with our airline systems, their
user-friendliness, and top quality customer support.”
In bringing together the best available inflight position data
from multiple sources in one application, SITAOnAir’s Aircom
FlightTracker empowers airline cockpit crews and operations teams
to maintain more accurate aircraft awareness. The knowledge that
bridges any ANSP tracking gaps may include problematic weather and
expected en-route turbulence information, helping to improve
flight operations and support timely pilot decision-making.
Aircom FlightTracker also enables automated reporting in both
normal and abnormal operations, and can also be configured to help airlines meet the ICAO’s one-minute distress tracking standard –
four years before its introduction.
Katrina Korzenowski, Vice President Asia-Pacific
at SITAOnAir, said, “Our Aircom
FlightTracker arms airlines with the powerful flight-tracking
capabilities they need to actively enhance their flight operations
and meet the ICAO’s forthcoming 15 and 1-minute tracking
best-practice requirements. By pulling together and integrating a
wealth of aircraft position sources, including ACARS, ADS-B, radar
and ATC Datalink, our Aircom FlightTracker offers 100% global,
real-time coverage to all airlines – without the need for costly
