Enhancing airport resilience and runway capacity with Intelligent Approach

January 20, 2020

NATS, the UK’s leading air navigation services provider and Leidos, a leading technology provider, developed a ground-breaking airport solution called Intelligent Approach. With Intelligent Approach, air traffic controllers around the world have the tools to safely optimise arrival spacing in all conditions and for all runway configurations, delivering capacity, safety and resilience benefits without the need for expensive changes to ground infrastructure. As demand for air travel grows it becomes essential for airports to leverage proven innovations to drive improved capacity, to do it quickly when capacity is constrained, and safely during disruptive conditions.

A SIMPLE GUIDE TO CORPORATE AIRLINE REWARD SCHEMES

whitePaper | November 17, 2019

If you travel a lot for work, then you’ll know about airline reward schemes. These programmes encourage travellers to book again and again with the same airline, collect loyalty points and exchange them for benefits such as discounted fares and free upgrades. But did you also know that in addition to these frequent flyer schemes for individuals, there are also airline reward schemes for companies? These corporate reward schemes are a great way to maximise the value of your company’s travel spend, while benefitting your travellers at the same time.

Connecting the Skies

whitePaper | November 8, 2019

The use cases for Inflight Connectivity are manifold. Market research suggests that 90% of passengers would like to connect, but less than 10% do so, as fees are high, and performance is poor. In the cabin, online credit card verification would eliminate fraud, and qualified medical assistance from the ground would avoid unnecessary diversions. Flight crews could optimize their flight path based on real time weather updates. Aircraft systems could report the need for maintenance and trigger ground crews accordingly, so that ground times can be minimized, and resources be used most efficiently. The ever-increasing demand for Inflight Connectivity is driven by several factors: the continued growth of airline passenger traffic, which is expected to double by 2035; 5-10 times higher passenger take rates of cabin Wi-Fi services than today; the amount of data generated by modern aircraft systems, which has already surpassed 1 Terabyte per flight just for the engines; other aerial vehicles that require connectivity for mission accomplishment, for example, police and rescue helicopters; and finally manned and unmanned drones (eVTOLs), which are expected to proliferate in the next decade.

Advancing Cyber Resilience in Aviation: An Industry Analysis

whitePaper | January 22, 2020

Civil aviation is an incredibly safe mode of transport. Year-on-year statistics referenced by the International Air Transport Association (IATA) Annual Safety Report demonstrate this. Considering the forecast of double-digit growth over the next 20 years and the new infrastructure needed to manage capacity and services – and as indirectly evidenced by high levels of consumer confidence documented in widely available growth analysis – continued efforts today will clearly be paramount tomorrow to maintain the safety promise.

The next generation mobile connectivity set to transform aviation

whitePaper | December 9, 2019

The world is flying more. In the next 20 years, the global fleet is expected to double to 48,000 aircraft, while annual passenger numbers are set to hit 7.2 billion. At the same time, passenger habits are changing quicker than anticipated. Not only are most of us glued to our smartphones and consuming an ever-greater volume of rich digital content, many of us are carrying around more than just one device. Add to this an explosion of Internet of Thing devices, from smartwatches to connected baggage aboard the aircraft, and demand for ‘always-on’ connectivity is becoming the norm
