How Connected Aviation Can Improve Operations and the Passenger Experience


The need for connectivity underpins and enables almost every technology and trend that we’re seeing in commercial aviation today. Whether it’s connectivity to the cabin, the cockpit, or network-enabled sensors and devices that measure the health and safety of the aircraft and its engines – the ability to receive and transmit data and information supports nearly every advancement and innovation being introduced to the industry.

Airlines, flight crews, airports, and passengers reap the benefits of a connected, seamless, paperless passenger journey through the airport. Pilots enjoy the safety, convenience, and efficiency of a connected cockpit and next-generation applications.

Additionally, airlines, airports, and passengers, alike, get to experience a world with fewer flight delays and decreased uncertainty thanks to massive improvements in airport and airline operations on the ground – including maintenance that starts while the plane is still in the air.

One of the companies driving toward a more modern, connected, and technology-enabled commercial aviation industry is Collins Aerospace. The editorial team at Connected Aviation Today recently sat down with a number of experts from Collins Aerospace to take a deeper dive into how connectivity, data sharing, and new technology can have a tangible impact on air travel.

These conversations with the Collins crew were then incorporated into a new eBook that shares its name with the company’s vision, “The Connected Aviation Ecosystem.

During our conversations with these aviation experts, we explored three phases of commercial air travel by following the passenger’s journey:

  • Through the airport
  • Onto the aircraft
  • En route to their destinations

We then explored some of the new technologies that are making this forward-looking vision of seamless, efficient, and sustainable air travel possible.
