Malaysia Airlines will soon be able to boast of being the first SITAONAIR airline customer to benefit from a revolutionary flight tracking partnership between SITAONAIR, Aireon and FlightAware. Thanks to this partnership, all Malaysia Airlines aircraft will soon have access to minute-by-minute, 100 per cent global, flight tracking data, delivered by SITAONAIR’s AIRCOM® FlightTracker.
“Real-time global aircraft tracking has long been a goal of the aviation community,” said Chief Operating Officer, Malaysia Airlines, Captain Izham Ismail in a statement in Singapore.
“We are proud to be the first airline to adopt this solution using space-based Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast (ADS-B) data as part of SITAONAIR’s AIRCOM FlightTracker,” he said.
The International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO) has mandated that airlines to track their aircraft at least every 15 minutes globally from November 2018.
This solution will enhance the existing SITAONAIR’s AIRCOM FlightTracker by adding Aireon’s space-based ADS-B data to the existing data available from FlightAware’s multiple global sources.
It complements active Air Navigation Service Provider (ANSP) Future Air Navigation System (FANS) activity data.
By incorporating this data, Malaysia Airlines’ aircraft operations centre will receive real-time position updates of its airborne fleet globally.
