3D moving map developer, FlightPath3D has announced that during Q1/2021, its install base surpassed 3,000 aircraft on more than 70 airlines, and that it expects to see continued and accelerated growth throughout 2021.
As Duncan Jackson, president of FlightPath3D, stated, “We’re seeing absolute signs of recovery in flights and see good growth going forward through 2021. We’re optimistic about the market and expect to surpass 4,000 aircraft within a year.”
Jackson’s optimism is built on the company’s market analysis, which has noted a sustained increase in air travel and aircraft returning to service as nations recover from the Covid-19 crisis. Geographic markets, domestic and international services, commercial and business sectors are all recovering, albeit at different paces.
“We’re seeing some of our customers in Asia and Oceania flying close to their 2019 passenger numbers for domestic flights, Jackson added. “In addition, our North American airline customers seem to be on the verge of a rapid increase in travel demand.”
Boris Veksler, CEO of FlightPath3D is also buoyed by the signs of market recovery. “We’re pleased to see 737 MAX deployments once again as they make their way back into revenue service. Our optimism is further amplified by the news around forward bookings from our airline customers and the growth we’re experiencing in the business aviation sector.”
In light of the pending rebound in travel demand, with people beginning to plan trips in numbers not seen for more than a year, the team at FlightPath3D has been developing new applications that help passengers find flights, routes and destinations based on personal profiles and experience desires.
Veksler added, “We’re excited to help airlines with their recovery with new apps to facilitate passenger interests to be matched to destinations, and flights or activities matched with traveller motivations. Our engineers are levering data science and large data sets to solve this.”
