Linking Aviation’s Legacy and Modern IT

Posted by:

Today’s airlines must communicate effectively with multiple partners using technologies ranging from the ancient to the most advanced. The interaction of these disparate systems can lead to minor or even more severe problems that result in delayed flights that cost airlines money.

The Air Transport Association estimates airlines incur an average of $61 per minute in direct operating costs per delayed aircraft. The total cost to aviation from these delays in 2009, according to ATA, was $6.1 billion. Those statistics further burden an already cash-strapped aviation industry that is simultaneously battling recessionary forces and higher fuel costs.

At AvFinity, we’re working with multiple issues in linking legacy and more modern IT architectures that span the whole range of aviation communications and data integration services. Our approach to solving these issues is revolutionary for its simplicity, cost-effectiveness and immediate results.

Recently, AvFinity was privileged to be part of the solution chosen by Canadian North Airlines for its legacy software issues. The Canadian North team was great to work with and you can read about how it all came about in our case study or our news release.
