Jeju Air Adopts SITAOnAir’s Aircom FlightTracker Solution

Jeju Air 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 modifications.”
