20 Most Promising Aviation Technology Solution Providers – 2019

The aviation industry is continually evolving to adapt to ever-changing consumer demands. Hence, the adoption of innovative aviation technology solutions is a must to stay ahead of the curve and deliver top-notch customer experience.

As part of creating a seamless travel experience for customers, airlines are increasingly launching biometric programs in their boarding processes. Biometric technologies such as fingerprint scanning and facial recognition, which are being extensively used on smartphones by millions, could eliminate the need for boarding passes and in turn, the personnel required to manually scan these passes at the boarding gate. Furthermore, aviation technology solution providers are leveraging artificial intelligence (AI) to guarantee the authenticity of passengers’ biometric data. For instance, AI helps distinguish a live face from a mask or an artificial image of a face, thereby upholding the airport security standards.

Beyond strengthening the safety of boarding processes, AI, along with big data analytics, is being used for predictive maintenance of aircraft. Digital tools based on these modern technologies capture engine performance with the help of sensors and help pilots evaluate their flights and virtual maintenance records. This real-time monitoring of operations can also prevent flight disruptions, thus improving airline performance significantly. Airlines can monitor their asset health and also receive prior warnings, predictions, as well as plans of actions by simulating ‘what-if’ scenarios with regard to weather, performance, and various other variables.

In a quest to ensure the longevity of equipment and deliver end-to-end seamless customer experience, airlines and airports must select aviation technology solutions that best meet their requirements. To assist companies with the same, our distinguished panel comprising key decision makers and experts along with CIOReview’s editorial board has shortlisted some of the most effective aviation technology solution providers.
