We are pleased to announce that AeroMexico is now an official member of our Airline Partnership Program and is providing FlightStats with a real-time operational data feed.
Whether it be data, distribution or technology, we are constantly looking to partner with other companies in an effort to increase everyone’s reach. We created the Airline Partnership Program to strengthen our relationships with airlines and assure we have the highest quality of data.
“In our line of work, it is always better to get information directly from the source: the airline,” said Jim Hetzel, VP of Business Development at FlightStats. “Our growing list of direct data feed partners enables us to improve the breadth, accuracy, and timeliness of our data.”
FlightStats data reaches a large number of global travelers and service providers every day. Getting information directly from the airline allows the FlightStats team to test and confirm facts and craft a detailed narrative of each flight. It’s the quality of our data feeds that enables us to give the best answers about what’s expected, what’s happening now, and what actually happened.
Few people appreciate all that goes into getting a plane, or a group of planes, from one point to the next. The task requires a massive coordination effort, with much of that effort focused on information. FlightStats is dedicated to supporting the best interests of airlines and providing them with the information they need to make good data-driven decisions.
Our goal is to provide airlines with data that will empower them to solve problems and better serve their customers. The information provided by airline data feeds is critical for:
- Improving operations
- Reducing delays
- Managing flight disruptions
- Increasing schedule reliability
- Controlling costs
The goal of the Airline Partnership Program is to make sure we properly represent the story of each airline across the travel ecosystem. Partnering with FlightStats and providing us with a direct data feed will ultimately give an airline more control over what we say about their operations. It also helps them fulfill their commitment to keeping travelers informed throughout all stages of a journey.
“FlightStats is an outstanding data partner and we are excited to work with them,” said Corneel Koster, Chief Operating Officer with AeroMexico. “Joining their Airline Partnership Program gives us the tools we need to continue to improve our customer experience and engagement.”
AeroMexico’s contribution to FlightStats’ data sources helps us guarantee our data is as reliable as possible. It will greatly improve our data quality and ensure we are providing the right information at the right time to travelers and service providers.
