Jeju Air is South Korea’s first LCC to adopt SITAONAIR AIRCOM® FlightTracker

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.” Katrina Korzenowski, Vice President Asia-Pacific at SITAONAIR, said: “Today’s airlines face a number of practical challenges in tracking their aircraft, which we at SITAONAIR have made our mission to empower them to overcome. A wide variety of technologies exist to track aircraft, but these technologies have not been consistently integrated.

“Our AIRCOM® FlightTracker arms airlines with the powerful flight-tracking capabilities they need to actively enhance their flight operations and meet the ICAO’s forthcoming 15 and one-minute tracking best-practice requirements.
