SITA FOR AIRCRAFT has partnered with Air France since 2014 on DataCapture® and began the deployment of the solution across Air France’s Airbus fleet in January 2017.

With DataCapture®, Air France has been equipped to complete the deployment of automated QAR/DAR data collection across its Airbus fleet for its Flight and Maintenance Operational Quality Assurance programs.

SITA FOR AIRCRAFT has been instrumental in the integration of the solution into its existing onboard hardware and ground systems.

In 2018, Air France also became the first AppsConnect® airline customer and collaborator. The tried and tested software solution is delivering enhanced connected capabilities to a host of airline applications, including SITA FOR AIRCRAFT’s eWAS Pilot EFB weather awareness solution, to provide optimal real-time graphical weather updates.

The solution has now been rolled out across 70 Air France Boeing 777s, delivering a raft of additional connected functionality to selected applications. These include the popular eWAS, Lufthansa’s LIDO, and PACE’s fuel optimization tools.

For Air France, the AppsConnect® software enables the carrier’s applications to connect over available ACARS and IP links inflight, prioritizing IP links where available.

It also gives Air France the key technology required to bring connectivity to any new and additional onboard cockpit applications, for maximum value.

“We are really pleased to be taking SITA FOR AIRCRAFT’s DataCapture® system onboard. It will enable us to complete the deployment of automated QAR/DAR data collection across our Airbus fleet for our Flight and Maintenance Operational Quality Assurance programs. SITA FOR AIRCRAFT has been instrumental in the integration of the solution into our existing onboard hardware and ground systems.” – Air France DataCapture® project lead
