  • AirAsia is among new customers to manage disruptions by optimizing
    network operations
  • Maximizing on Time Performance and Improving Passenger Experience
    with Network Operations decision support
  • Bringing the total number of aircraft with GE Aviation’s Digital
    Solutions to more than 15,000

DALLAS–(BUSINESS WIRE)–GE Aviation today announces digital Network Operations agreements with
customers at the Waypoint event including AirAsia and additional
undisclosed airlines. Implementation of Network Operations will take
place this year for the airlines.

“Network Operations delivers powerful software applications that collect
and analyze data streams in real time across multiple systems,” said
John Mansfield, chief digital officer for GE Aviation. “This helps
airlines recover from disruptions faster and more efficiently than ever
and enables them to recoup substantial costs in the process.”

AirAsia signs a five-year contract for Network Operations Insights to
provide a single view of disruption impacts on AirAsia’s entire
multi-hub network which carries close to 90 million passengers per year.
This includes a Data Science project to help analyze the flight schedule
and give insights into the delay cause of disruption. This opportunity
further emphasizes AirAsia’s continued trust in our products and
services.

AirAsia Group Chief Operations Officer Captain Adrian Jenkins said, “The
adoption of GE’s Network Operations Insights is instrumental to our
ongoing business success, especially as AirAsia embarks on its mission
to digitise every aspect of its business. This solution will help us to
identify disruptions across our network and reduce risk through
real-time data forecasting. It will ultimately improve our operational
efficiency.”

This new engagement further expands AirAsia’s existing digital
relationship with GE which already includes electronic Flight Operations
Quality Assurance (eFOQA) and the FlightPulse pilot application for
AirAsia’s fleet of approximately 255 A320 and A330 aircraft and 3,200
pilots.

“The power of Network Operations provides customers with real-time
disruption management and operational efficiency, through operations
insights, recovery optimization and passenger protection, to minimize
the impact of delays and cancellations,” added Mansfield.
