Avianca Brazil (OceanAir) has adopted SITAONAIR’s AIRCOM FlightTracker on the domestic carrier’s current fleet of 49 Airbus A320 and four Airbus A330 aircraft.

This puts Avianca Brazil well ahead of the International Civil Aviation Organization’s (ICAO) 2018 safety mandate, compelling operators to state their aircraft flight positions at least once every 15 minutes.

The airline has also deployed SITAONAIR’s AIRCOM FlightMessenger on its fleet, helping improve efficiency by translating operational data into a format that seamlessly integrates into the airline’s IT infrastructure.

Frederico Pedreira, Chief Executive Officer of Avianca Brazil, said: “Deploying this industry benchmark flight-tracker has been a priority for us, and we are very happy with the results.

“Having the proper technology from SITAONAIR to track our fleet, comply with the ICAO’s recommendation, and further our commitment to passenger safety, is an achievement we are proud of.

“As we begin the exciting path to expanding beyond domestic routes to offer international flights across the Americas, we do so equipped with an impressive technology that will seamlessly support the management of our growing airborne fleet.”

Carlos Vianna, SITAONAIR’s Head of Business Development, Latin America, said: “Avianca Brazil joins a select group of airlines in South America today to have activated flight-tracking technologies, reinforcing their passenger safety commitments.

“SITAONAIR’s AIRCOM FlightTracker comes straight from aviation’s digital experts, providing automated alerting and gathering data from multiple global sources, filling in any gaps between air navigation services provider tracking.

“Our FlightTracker will ensure that Avianca Brazil has the intelligent innovation it needs to effortlessly support the comprehensive management of the fleet as the airline continues to expand.”

The airline is using a group of technologies to track aircraft: ADS-B, ACARS (VHF/VDL and/or Classic Aero satellite) and ATC radar where available.
