Azul Implements SITA’s Flight Tracking and Weather Solution

Brazilian airline Azul Linhas Areas Brasileiras has implemented SITA eWAS Dispatch, a flight tracking and weather data solution that gives dispatchers a real-time view of each aircraft’s location, as well as current and upcoming weather hazards.

Azul, which operates domestic and international flights in Latin America and the Caribbean (LAC), has chosen SITA’s cloud-based tracking and weather awareness solution to strengthen its weather resilience and security.

Rather than the usual single weather source approach, eWAS Dispatch has global weather coverage from multiple providers, allowing dispatchers to make better decisions based on more accurate and comprehensive data.

The solution also features an early warning system that alerts of potential weather issues and is compliant with the Global Aeronautical Distress and Safety System (GADSS) – the industry standard for global flight tracking to support in-flight safety.

Diogo Youssef, Engineering and Flight Dispatch Manager, Azul said: We operate in a region affected by extreme weather conditions. We chose SITA eWAS Dispatch because it offers excellent next-generation flight weather data and flight tracking to strengthen our resilience to weather events while improving operational efficiencies and reducing emissions.

Severe weather events often prove expensive for airlines when considering the cost of network and operational impact, passenger relocation, etc.

SITA estimates that its eWAS Dispatch solution could save around $600,000 if just a single weather event were avoided.

The flight rescheduling feature can save airlines like Azul about 153 tons of fuel and 488 tons of CO2 per year, according to conservative estimates.

The carbon reduction benefits support Azul’s sustainability ambitions to be net-zero by 2045, five years ahead of the industry’s long-term goal of net-zero carbon emissions by 2050.

Yann Cabaret, Chief Executive Officer, SITA for Aircraft, said: We provide and develop world-class solutions that help solve the challenges of our industry today and tomorrow. Real-time data flow is key to helping airlines like Azul adapt to changing environments and support better decision-making for more resilient and sustainable flight operations.
