Abstract

Civil aviation will soon celebrate its centenary. It emerged as a universal means of transportation, to which the latest technological innovations of many kinds have never ceased to be applied. Nowadays different vendor companies have developed an extensive range of solutions to improve the passenger´s journey, streamline and integrate airline and airport operations, track baggage and cargo, and ensure that the highest levels of maintenance and aircraft safety and security are effectively communicated. Their objective is simple - to assist their customers in delivering the highest quality to the passengers. This paper provides details on all the latest solutions available at every step of journey for passengers from providing up-to-the-minute fare and flight information, to safe arrival, and everything in between. We have to know that air passengers cannot be served by the airline on an appropriate level having no effective information systems available.
