Jeju Air has become South Korea’s first low-cost carrier (LCC) to adopt SITAONAIR‘s AIRCOM FlightTracker, equipping the carrier to meet the incoming International Civil Aviation Organization(ICAO) 2018 flight-tracking mandate.
AIRCOM FlightTracker has been deployed across Jeju Air’s fleet of 29 B737s. SITAONAIR’s market-leading solution meets the airline flight-tracking challenge by gathering data from multiple global sources, filling in any gaps between terrestrial tracking sources to help improve flight operations.
AIRCOM FlightTracker is unique in that it can deliver this service using equipment already present on most aircraft – without the need for modifications or additional avionics – making it the industry’s cost effective, swift-to-deploy, flight-tracking solution.
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.”
