SITA FOR AIRCRAFT has worked with FlightAware to incorporate its Firehose data into SITA FOR AIRCRAFT’s market-leading AIRCOM® FlightTracker since the solution’s inception.

FlightAware’s Firehose is a TCP-based, SSL streaming data feed of flight positions and flight status. Every Firehose connection includes airborne or surface position data from FlightAware’s terrestrial network of ADS-B receivers.

Positions from Aireon’s space-based ADS-B network, can also be incorporated as an optional extra.

SITA FOR AIRCRAFT’s partnership with FlightAware means any airline using AIRCOM® FlightTracker has access to a dynamic, data-rich tool that provides an overview of the exact position, speed and altitude of its airborne fleet.

With the addition of space-based ADS-B data via FlightAware, airlines using AIRCOM® FlightTracker have access to 100% coverage, even over oceanic, remote and polar areas.
