Making use of global and regional trend data analytics to set Safety and Security Performance Targets. The Incident Data eXchange (IDX) is IATA's safety and security incident data management program.

The IDX program is a worldwide, aggregated, de-identified database of incident reports including flight operations, cabin, ground operations safety and security occurrences. It offers a secure environment providing participants with a seamless experience to view aggregated data against standards and benchmarked with other counterparts.

Safety and security information is shown on key performance indicators, helping IDX participants to benchmark their own performance and establish safety performance targets in accordance with ICAO requirements for Safety Management Systems (SMS).

Free tools for IDX contributors

Participants can use IDX global and regional safety and security data to set the agenda for their safety and security committee meetings. Tools and reports are free to airlines who contribute their safety and security data to the program.
