Artificial Intelligence (AI) in aviation is changing the way companies manage data, operations, and revenue streams. The industry is increasingly using AI to improve operational efficiency, jet fuel efficiency, customer satisfaction and reduce flight delays.
The aviation industry was hit the hardest by travel bans and restrictions due to the Covid-19 pandemic. In the post-Covid-19 period, many airport standards and new features are being automated to improve efficiency and minimise human contact like contactless check-ins, security procedures, symptoms screening, among others.

How is AI transforming the aviation industry?
Air Traffic Control (ATC)
ATC is normally controlled by ATC specialists who guide and communicate with nearby aircraft and manage landings and take-offs from a control tower. With technology, ATC is being partially taken over by AI-based systems that manage landing sequences, weather conditions, forced landings, accidents, and failures.
Dynamic ticket pricing
Dynamic ticket pricing is an AI-based technique that uses dynamic pricing algorithms to adjust prices to the most profitable levels based on current conditions.
AI systems in the aviation industry are helping airports predict delays and notify passengers at the earliest. In this way, airlines can also greatly improve customer experience.
Modern Air Traffic Management (ATM) systems based on AI allow air transportation companies to identify optimal flight routes. This way the industry can reduce costs and enhance time and fuel efficiency.
Intelligent workforce management (WFM) systems help in scheduling crews for each flight without unnecessary complexity and delays. In this way, each flight has an assured number of crew members to proceed as planned, minimising potential errors. It is also the best way to maximise the potential of each crew member.
Predictive algorithms are AI solutions that enable airlines to anticipate not only potential flight delays and complications, but also required repairs and maintenance work.
Chatbots and customer service automation can direct users to specific services, update on flights, among others, thereby allowing staff to focus on higher value activities.
By analysing the flight and purchase patterns of specific customers and combining them with historical data, algorithms can identify passengers making suspicious credit card transactions, eliminate fraud, and help airlines save millions of dollars.
