Skywise can help

The effects of the outbreak of the Coronavirus (Covid-19) have led to travel disruptions and restrictions across the world, leading to the grounding of aircraft and cancelling flights for many airlines. Our teams are working closely with our Skywise customers to see how they can use Skywise to respond to the operational impacts of COVID-19.

Skywise COVID-19 Parking Management

As a consequence of the Covid‐19 pandemic, airlines were forced to ground large parts of their fleets, a situation which is complex to track down: it is difficult to precisely know which aircraft are stored in which location, and which maintenance tasks need to be carried out to uphold airworthiness.


Parking Management

Airlines can now use the geospatial Skywise-based app “Parking Management” to tag their grounded aircraft in Skywise, and virtually park them into airports/stations (hangar, gate, taxiway, etc.). They can quickly pull contextual data such as the aircraft’s age, latest and next checks, last major assembly overhaul, and more. The newly designed Skywise app allows operators to efficiently decide where to store each individual aircraft, and in which order.


Skywise COVID-19 Return To Service App

The Skywise Return to Service application allows airlines to evaluate different utilisation scenarios and find the lowest cost combination of aircraft to return to service. It includes:

  • Dynamic forecasting
  • Cost inputs
  • Airline and aircraft specific maintenance and utilisation inputs
  • Adjustment of specific tasks in case of maintenance deferrals


The application is built to account for variability in factors like aircraft age, outstanding maintenance and OEM task deferrals when calculating the overall cost of the operation.
