SITA OnAir answers industry challenge for global flight tracking

Posted 15 April 2015 · Add Comment

Malaysia Airlines will be the first carrier to implement global flight tracking using SITA OnAir's AIRCOM FlightTracker, starting this summer.

The airline has already conducted extensive testing of the technology, which uses existing equipment and re-purposes air traffic control data. This ground-based software upgrade allows airlines to follow aircraft positions and identify any unexpected deviations or gaps in position reports. Because it utilizes existing equipment, the solution is highly cost effective.

AIRCOM FlightTracker was launched to meet the needs of the aviation industry. Moving beyond the trial phase, the airlines are now ready to roll out the system across their entire fleets. Malaysia Airlines will be the first to go live with deployment this summer, in under a year after the solution was launched in fast track mode in June 2014.
