While a seamless journey is a basic traveler expectation, delivering on that expectation efficiently is an everyday challenge in airline operations.
Digitization is the way forward for Airline Operations!
Airline experts hypothesize that technology adoption at airlines will leap forward in the aftermath of COVID-19. Around 70% of attendees from IBS Software’s VOPS’20 - Virtual Operations meetings with airlines across regions agreed that the time is right for large-scale transformations. These digitally-driven transformations will embed themselves into operations and drive long-term sustained efficiency.
The COVID-19 pandemic has accelerated an existing need for change in terms of how airlines manage flight disruptions and irregular operations. Airlines today need heightened situational awareness and streamlined decision-making functions to anticipate and respond to macro and internal disruptions.
The entire airline industry is undergoing a digital revolution, with airlines relying more than ever on digital technology to manage everything from booking and in-flight entertainment to aircraft maintenance. In this scenario, digital infrastructure will become the foundation that supports both the launch and the entire lifecycle of new airlines. It will help new companies differentiate themselves from competitors as they scale.
