How is cloud computing helping the aviation industry? 


Airlines that use cloud services eliminate the need to purchase and maintain on-premise servers and hardware and the IT staff required to administer them. The administrative and maintenance costs are greatly reduced in this manner.  

Redefine customer services 

When it comes to passenger services, airlines are turning to cloud technologies to provide services such as label-printed baggage drop-off and self-boarding gates. It is based on all data generated from check-ins and reservation systems, including customer data that is centrally stored and verified. The data is also readily accessible to airline personnel, passengers, security personnel, and others with some form of information access. 

Aircraft maintenance 

In an increasingly complex environment, being able to order, replace and maintain a wide range of aircraft components while staying current with the latest technology, safety policies, regulatory compliance and aircraft maintenance logs and history is essential. This is where cloud computing steps in to provide regular and efficient aircraft maintenance. 

Faster deployment of Apps & Services 

Instead of emailing instructions and changes to ticket centre staff, airlines can transmit critical information in real-time to booking apps running continuously on computers and mobile phones. The cloud-based infrastructure also eliminates the need for separate licences for each workstation, saving costs and expediting the process.
