Unleashing the potential of data

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. Airbus has discovered the value of integrating disparate data sources.

Airbus is the only player in the industry able to connect and enable the complete digital aviation ecosystem. The aim is to make the data sharable, open and transparent to create value for our customers. Being at the heart of aviation, Airbus, through Skywise, supports its customers’ activity on every aircraft-related aspect of the industry.

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

Platform of reference

Airbus launched the Skywise aviation data platform at the 2017 Paris Air Show, in collaboration with Palantir Technologies – which is a pioneer in big-data integration and advanced analytics. 

Skywise aims to become the platform of reference used by all major aviation players to improve their operational performance and business results, as well as to support their own digital transformation. In time, Airbus aims to extend Skywise to become aerospace’s data platform of reference. 

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

Tan Sri Tony Fernandes, Group Chief Executive Officer of AirAsia

Customer benefits

By adopting Skywise, customers will benefit from a supercharged and ever-evolving digital platform. The main outcome will be efficiencies, savings and revenue opportunities achieved by reducing operational interruptions, burning less fuel, operating more efficiently, reducing workload and leaving room for third-party services (mostly in maintenance).

Connecting suppliers to the power of data sharing

At the 2018 Farnborough Airshow, Airbus announced the extension of its Skywise to the supply chain. Highlighting the operational advantages of Skywise are Airbus Digital Transformation Officer Marc Fontaine, and Matt Evans, Head of Skywise. Additional perspectives are provided by representatives of Airbus suppliers Liebherr-Aerospace, Thales and Premium Aerotec, which are among the supply chain ‘early adopters’ of Skywise.
