Singapore Airlines, Royal Brunei and Norwegian Air Shuttle to Deploy SITA OnAirs Aircom FlightTracker

Travel News Asia Latest Travel News Podcasts Videos Thursday, 18 June 2015

Singapore Airlines, Royal Brunei and Norwegian Air Shuttle have signed-up for SITA OnAirs Aircom FlightTracker.

The product uses existing equipment and re-purposes air traffic control data to provide consistent monitoring throughout the flight.

The three airlines will deploy it on their entire fleet starting this month.

Norwegian Air Shuttle has a strict selection process for every new solution we introduce. This is particularly true for something as important as aircraft tracking. It quickly became clear that SITA OnAir is the only provider that could give us exactly what we need. SITA OnAirs FlightTracker is the most complete solution available. Using multiple sources of data, we can track all our aircraft at 15 minute intervals or less. It also provides the most accurate data, using "smoothing" to combine position sources, said Chief Operating Officer Geir Steiro at Norwegian Air Shuttle. And of course, safety is paramount for a solution like this. FlightTrackers automated alerting system allows us to manage our fleet of 100 aircraft and the additional 200 that will enter the fleet in the coming years safely and efficiently. A bonus feature is the unique way it integrates ATC data into our systems- it will give us valuable insight into our operations and how we can improve them.

Ian Dawkins, CEO of SITA OnAir, added, With the airlines invaluable support, we have designed the solution to make it simple for airlines to implement flight tracking. For the 90-plus airlines already using our Aircom FlightMessenger, we can deploy the solution in a few days. Following the recent ICAO discussions, we are also working on the definition and development of a new system to detect and report unusual situations. As part of our commitment to the air transport community we will, during an emergency, provide Aircom FlightTracker position reporting free of charge to SITA member customers
