Unleashing the potential of data

Skywise is the first-of-its-kind open data platform developed by Airbus for the aviation industry. By making the right information available at the right time, Skywise provides invaluable insights from the massive amounts of data that was previously locked in corporate and functional silos. 

Shareable, open and transparent data

In aviation, data used to be locked in silos for maintenance, flight management, aircraft monitoring and safety, and other critical workflows. Skywise integrates disparate data sources, enabling data to become shareable, open and transparent through the following:  

·       Data gathering: Extracting more data from on-board systems, as well as handling and storing terabytes of data 

·       Information comparison: Gathering, sorting and comparing massive amounts of data from different sources

·       Data analysis: Identifying patterns within data to help find root causes, and the most efficient and least costly solutions

·       Data simplification: Translating this information into human language using dynamic, tailored dashboards and apps to facilitate quick decision-making

Skywise: unleashing the potential of data


From engineering and maintenance to flight operations, Skywise allows every aviation stakeholder to make the most accurate decisions and disclose the best opportunities for growth. Read less Read more

Skywise will enable us to reach new insights into the operation of our aircraft, optimise our decision-making in maintenance, engineering and flight operations, and reduce our costs.

Tan Sri Tony Fernandes, Group Chief Executive Officer of AirAsia
