Airline Operational Data (AOD) Workshop -- Capacity: 85 attendees (Airlines only)

Launched in 2018, the Airline Operational Data (AOD) initiative's aim is to ensure full control for airlines over the substantial data generated by aircraft systems, components and sensors, both in flight, at the gate or being serviced.

The potential to optimize operations and enhance the safety of air transport that access to such data provides is an opportunity that we, as an industry, cannot ignore. Securing ownership of the data is therefore essential, and a collaborative approach is the most advantageous to all.

Come and find out:

  • Why is it important to be free to choose your data services provider?
  • What are the legal implications of data ownership and data access?
  • How a collaborative approach involving all stakeholders benefits the industry?
