Airline Operations Software

There are many forms of airline operations software dealing with the constantly updating information that aviation inevitably produces during the day-to-day management of flights, airport operations and airline passenger data processing.

Find out more about airline passenger data.

For maximum efficiency, airlines use operational software to assist with the compilation, delivery and receipt of what can amount to millions of pieces of data in the form of operational messages between aviation businesses, ground-based personnel, air traffic management teams, aircraft and regulatory agencies. Type B messaging is often the most secure method used for the exchange of critical data.

Functions performed by airline operations software can include, yet are by no means limited to:

  • Passenger data transfer
  • Flight planning and filing
  • Weight and balance calculations
  • Aircraft scheduling
  • Fuel management
  • Flight data monitoring
  • Passenger and cargo manifests
  • Catering
  • Maintenance scheduling
  • Personnel management
  • Aircraft communications

Facilitating aviation security with the fulfilment of obligatory requirements

Airlines and operators are facing ever-tightening regulatory control measures, as governments and international border agencies endeavour to protect national borders from external threats. It is the responsibility of airlines to ensure compliance with these regulations or face significant fines and penalties.

More about aviation security.

Advance passenger screening with the provision of Advance Passenger Information (API) and Passenger Name Records (PNR) is becoming an increasing requirement across the world, enabling government agencies to receive a clear picture of those intending to board aircraft and cross borders.

The provision of API is currently a mandatory requirement in many countries and failure to deliver secure flight passenger data can result in fines from the U.S. of $5,000, in addition to the possibility of severe, expensive ground delays as passengers and their luggage are removed from fly lists and the aircraft.
