United Airlines enlists Airbus’ data platform to enhance operations

Airbus and United Airlines have entered into a working arrangement, with the airline utilising the planemaker’s open-data platform, Skywise, in a bid to enhance maintenance and engineering operations on its Airbus fleet.

With flexible and visual tools, Skywise enables airlines to store, access, manage, and analyse data more efficiently while also benchmarking against other airline users’ trends.

Praveen Sharma, United’s vice president of digital products and analytics, said: “We are proud to partner with Airbus and Palantir on this new data platform, which will allow us to maximise the performance of our Airbus fleet by analysing the best data we have available and using those insights to continuously improve our operation.”
