The aviation industry has never been a passive player. With the allurement of predictive analytics and the emergence of IoT and AI in the fourth Industrial Revolution, avionics has taken great benefits from it. AI will impact aviation in many ways from passenger experience to flight operations. Here is a quick summary of how
1. Ticketing System
The price of the tickets can be dynamic. The multiple factors involved make it complicated to make a precise conclusion. Factors like flight distance, seasonality, oil price, competition, purchase date, airline reputation and more, impact airline ticket pricing. This is where AI comes to rescue. It deduces precise results from the data set and is supporting the aviation industry execute prototypes like expected marginal seat revenue (EMSR) and ancillary price optimization. This helps the aviation industry cut the cost and enhance customer services.
2. Fuel Efficiency
The largest operational costs for any airline is fuel. Airlines can use machine learning algorithms to assemble and analyze data about aircraft weights, flight routes, distances, altitudes, number of passengers, etc. This data can help AI Algorithms to deduce the optimum amount of fuel necessary for each flight. Also, it can reduce carbon emissions and prove to be an ecological step. Therefore, reducing fuel wastage is an important objective for the aviation industry.
3. Flight Maintenance
Managing track of passenger luggage is a primary character of air transportation. Commonly, most airlines still use paper tags for luggage tracking. An electronic tag system that looks like a paper tag but displays the information electronically can be used. Passengers can then connect to the tag through Bluetooth devices and set up all check-in parameters.
4. Luggage Tracking
Predictive Analytics can answer the following questions. Artificial Intelligence with Predictive Analytics can be employed to study historical data and predict a failure before it actually happens. With the advanced notification, the manufacturer can arrange for the required repairs, thus avoiding disruption. This also helps to minimize downtime. Customers are also satisfied with fast and hassle-free services.
5. In-flight experience
IoT devices are being used everywhere to customize and improve the customer experience. The aviation industry is deploying creative measures for the same. Connected IoT LEDs and microphones to the uniforms of the crew members give a message- flight number and emergency guidance. The microphones assist the crew to directly communicate with passengers.
All of these clubbed together have been of great advantage to the aviation industry. Therefore, AI technologies are considered very useful for various aspects of airline operation management.
