Airlines are focused on making operational efficiencies. But to achieve them, they face the challenge of integrating multiple applications across different fleets from various suppliers.
They may also have a unique contract for each aircraft network, such as for datalink, or broadband or cellular connectivity, adding another layer of complexity.
SITA FOR AIRCRAFT’s connected application ecosystem, AppsConnect®, helps you address these challenges.
AppsConnect® expertly enables secure, cost-effective connectivity and real time data for airline applications. It supports everything from smoother dispatch operations and on-time performance, to optimizing routes with improved flight planning and fueling.
With AppsConnect®, airlines can connect cockpit and cabin crew applications and more. Pilots can exchange more timely, improved information for flight planning, position mapping, journey and technology logs, and en route weather awareness.
Cabin crews, meanwhile, can share and seamlessly synchronize important cabin information, such as inflight reports, onboard transaction verifications and cabin logbooks, straight after landing.
