Asiana upgrades the system that monitors flight safety

Dec 01,2018
Asiana Airlines completed an upgrade of its flight operational quality assurance system on Friday.

The system analyzes data related to flight operations including piloting decisions during unexpected weather conditions and plane speeds or flying altitudes on certain flight routes.

It was first implemented in 1995 to ensure safety in flight operations and, since 2015, a committee consisting of eight representatives from both the corporate and labor union has been holding monthly meetings to find potential risks in flight operations based on the data.

Asiana said the upgrade enables the company to collect and analyze all data on flight operations while the previous system only allowed the company to analyze unusual sets of data. This way, the airline can monitor each pilot’s operational habits and provide more detailed feedback to them.

The airline is also preparing to launch a so-called Asiana Flight Review Assistance System by 2019 in partnership with its IT service affiliate Asiana IDT to further enhance safety in flight operations. This system will help the company manage all analysis on flight operations using big data technology.
