Aireon, Cirium Form Data Partnership

02/09/2022

Aireon, the global leader in space-based ADS-B for enhanced air traffic surveillance and aviation data analytics, has entered into a partnership with Cirium, the aviation analytics company, bringing together two world-class data sets for airspace stakeholders, creating the most complete end-to-end view of flights, anywhere in the world.

Cirium will gain access to Aireon’s real-time data service product, AireonSTREAM. AireonSTREAM is the world’s first and only global source of ATS grade surveillance data, which will enable Cirium to utilize the most precise and accurate global data available. At the same time, Aireon will gain access to Cirium’s flight status data, which includes real-time flight information, such as estimated and actual arrival and departure times, aircraft type, delay calculations, as well as Cirium’s airline schedules – the aviation industry’s most comprehensive schedule database.

Cirium will integrate Aireon’s complete, global, real-time flight data with its unique combination of fleet, flight status and airline schedules data. Cirium will use Aireon’s data to bring new levels of data coverage and precision of take-off and landing times that it already provides to the world’s major air travel, aerospace manufacturing and aviation finance organizations.

For Aireon customers, Cirium data will enable Aireon to integrate the best-in-class schedule and status information into the AireonSTREAM, AireonFLOW, and AireonINSIGHTS product lines.

“The partnership with Cirium is an exciting one for the industry,” said Don Thoma, Aireon CEO. “This collaboration, combining two best-in-class data providers, will allow Cirium and Aireon customers to achieve even greater awareness of and insights into the global airspace to allow better, safer and more operationally efficient decisions.”

“Cirium and Aireon share a vision to uncover new ways to upgrade the world aviation industry’s efficiency. To achieve this, organizations need the best data to power solutions and decision making. We are very proud of this partnership which together creates the most complete set of gate-to-gate data available about a flight,” said Jeremy Bowen, CEO of Cirium. “This is the first step in what should prove to be a much wider reaching partnership between Aireon and Cirium as the two businesses uncover new ways to upgrade the world aviation industry’s efficiency.”
