Flight Data Services and IATA sign a Safety Collaboration for Flight Data Analysis

19th April 2016

The leading Flight Data Analysis (FDA) provider, Flight Data Services has signed a safety collaboration agreement with the International Air Transport Association (IATA). This safety collaboration will offer a service unique to the market that combines expertise in flight data and international programs in Flight Data Connect, a best in class flight data analysis service.

Flight Data Connect will be delivered via the web-based POLARIS platform, established as the industry’s leading FDA system. The same core analysis will also be used for IATA’s Flight Data eXchange (FDX) program. All flight data will be processed by Flight Data Services’ secure private cloud infrastructure which, with a throughput of 400,000 flights per day and half a Petabyte of storage, has the capacity to meet all of IATA’s needs.

The safety collaboration is also focused on delivering strong support to both FDS & IATA FDA customers. With the Flight Data Connect Service, analysts at Flight Data Services and IATA will work together to support their own and each other’s customers seamlessly. IATA’s team will work alongside Flight Data Services’ teams in England, Phoenix, and soon Singapore.

Dave Jesse, CEO of Flight Data Services said, "I share, with my colleagues in IATA and in Flight Data Services, a passion for aviation safety. I am very excited about this new safety collaboration as it paves the way for many advances in aviation safety."

Rodolfo Quevedo, IATA's Director of Safety said "Safety is the top priority for everyone involved in aviation. Flight data analysis is an invaluable tool in helping to make our industry even safer. This collaboration will not only allow for added service capabilities to individual airlines, but also greater capabilities for analysis of aggregated de-identified FDX data to help IATA address safety issues around the globe"

The official signing ceremony at the IATA Ops Conference in Copenhagen on 19 th April 2016 will mark the official launch of Flight Data Connect.
