DTN is a private company specializing in subscription-based services for the analysis and delivery of real-time data, such as weather information.

Across multiple sectors, DTN offers expert weather insight and recommendations on how to proceed safely. DTN’s actionable weather insight helps organizations keep spectators, enthusiasts, travelers and the general public safe from hazardous conditions.

In 2018, SITA FOR AIRCRAFT joined DTN to launch a weather-alert feature for its AIRCOM® FlightTracker that empowers flight dispatchers to avoid or anticipate weather disruption throughout flights.

The feature equips airline dispatchers using AIRCOM® FlightTracker to help aircraft avoid inclement weather – including turbulence, icing, and thunderstorm forecasts – supporting the smoothest and safest possible flight experience for those onboard, while maximizing fuel efficiency.

The incorporation of DTN’s Flight Route Alerting data into FlightTracker has made the solution indispensable for flight operators’ flight planning and flight following.

DTN also provides additional weather data layers to both AIRCOM® FlightTracker and AIRCOM® FlightPlanner. This helps operations control center and dispatch teams monitor the impact of weather mid-flight, as well as informing dispatch decisions based on how weather will impact future flights.

“We are excited to partner with SITA FOR AIRCRAFT to provide additional layers of safety to all flights. The system allows you to take charge of your flight plan, planning routes up to 36 hours in advance, giving operators the confidence to schedule flights that keep passengers and crew safe, avoid turbulence, and use less fuel.

“DTN’s insights also shed light on weather events that exceed the parameters for any planned routes, enabling flight planners to select the route that offers the best cost and the least chance of weather-related disruptions.” – Jon Reifschneider, senior vice president of weather at DTN
