ACI World and Cirium Partner on Landmark Data Collaboration to Strengthen World’s Leading Airport Service Quality Program

Partnership solidifies ACI World’s commitment to the accuracy and reliability of customer experience data.

Airports Council International (ACI) World and Cirium, a global leader in aviation data analytics, begin a landmark collaboration to strengthen the Airport Service Quality (ASQ) program—the world’s leading airport customer experience measurement and benchmarking program.

The ASQ program's methodology is renowned for its robustness, ensuring the most accurate representation of airport traffic. In recognizing the critical role that flight databases play in the assessment of respondent sampling, Cirium will serve as the reference database for flights supporting the ASQ methodology—solidifying the ASQ program’s commitment to accuracy and reliability. Cirium’s core platform provides details on more than 35 million flights per year and covers 97% of scheduled flights worldwide.

Compared to other programs in the aviation industry, the ASQ program is based on live research via surveys gathered at the airport—direct from the traveller—rating their satisfaction on the day of travel. It serves as the basis for the annual ASQ Awards which recognize the best airports for customer experience worldwide, as selected by passengers.

Cirium launches the first airline routes tool based on satellite-based flight tracking

In an industry first, the Airline Routes tool analyzes an airline’s routes using satellite-based flight tracking data to identify actual flights flown by aircraft type.
Businesses can identify aircraft demand and where airlines are growing or reducing their network to factor development opportunities or risks into decision-making.

Cirium, the aviation analytics leader, has launched the aviation industry’s first Airline Routes tool to identify actual flights flown by aircraft type.

It uses applied analytics to derive routes flown by airlines based on satellite-based flight tracking and fuses this with advanced fleet data.

The new premium Routes tool is part of Ascend Profiles, a visual descriptive analytics tool which enables businesses to quickly view aircraft intelligence by airline or lessor.

Businesses such as aircraft lessors, banks or aircraft manufacturers are empowered to identify the aircraft flown by route for 1,700 airlines and factor development opportunities or risk into their decision making.

By leveraging satellite-based flight tracking data the tool identifies what routes and aircraft airlines actually flew rather than what they planned to fly providing the most accurate flight completion picture.

Kevin Hightower, Cirium VP of Product said: “The Airline Routes tool is the first of its kind to bring together such advanced data – the satellite-based flight tracking and the comprehensive fleet data – meaning businesses can conduct quick yet accurate due diligence on an airline portfolio.

December was Busiest Month for Air Travel Globally in 2021; Over 59,000 Flights Are Canceled Near Year-End, the Most in a Decade

 Aviation analytics firm Cirium, reveals that December was the busiest month in 2021 for flights globally, totalling 2.43 million, however, the total number of flights cancelled globally between December 24, 2021, and January 3, 2022, was 59,240, some 2.4%.

Cirium’s On-Time Performance Review 2021 reveals December as the busiest month in 2021 for flights flown globally – a total of 2.43 million
Over 59,240 flights have been canceled globally from December 24 to January 3 – the most flight cancelations in December for the past decade
20,500 of these flight cancelations happened over the first three days of the new year
The big four US airlines canceled a total of nearly 7,040 flights between December 24 and January 3
American Airlines flew the most flights in 2021 at around 1,850,050
Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport was the busiest global airport this year and ranked 15th in the Top 20 Global airports for on-time performance

The number of cancellations over this period is the most cancellations in December for the past decade, six times more than the cancellations in 2019 and two and half times more than 2020. A total of 20,500 flights were cancelled in the first three days of the new year.

The big four US airlines, including American Airlines, Delta Air Lines, Southwest Airlines and United Airlines, canceled nearly 7,040 flights over this period.

The cancelations are driven by the surging cases of the Omicron variant of COVID-19 and other operational challenges (including winter weather). Airlines rapidly cancelled flights due to staff shortages across crew and ground operations.

Pre-Omicron, global flights flown increased 1.5% week-over-week (December 11-17, 2021). However, global flights are now down 5% compared to the week prior, following the impact of Omicron.

There are large variances between the regions, with the US, Europe and North Atlantic down 9-10%, China up 6%, while Asia-Pacific and Middle East are flat.

Airlines were on time in 2020, but passenger flights operated halved compared to 2019

Over 180 of 300 airlines around the world achieved a 90% or higher on-time arrival since February 2020.
Atlanta was the busiest airport globally based on flights operated in 2020, taking the top spot from Chicago O’Hare;
Three Chinese airports vaulted into the top 10 global airports by flights operated.
76% of Chinese passenger flights operated despite the pandemic. The US (58%), India (50%) and UK (33%) saw major reductions in flight volume.
Southwest Airlines operated the most flights in 2020;
China Southern Airlines, China Eastern Airlines and Air China climbed in the top 10 airlines.

Over 180 of the major global airlines were on time in 2020, according to a new report by Cirium, the global aviation data company. The Cirium Airline Insights Review 2020 reveals that only 30 major airlines achieved this standard pre-pandemic. But over 60%—or 180 of 300 airlines globally—achieved a 90% or higher on-time arrival percentage since February 2020.

On-time performance of the top 300 global airlines significantly improved as COVID-19 reduced the number of flights in the air. In 2020, airlines only flew half of the flights flown the previous year.

“The pandemic caused a significant reduction in flight volume with airlines operating 49% fewer flights in 2020. The factors that normally cause flight delays didn’t exist, such as congestion at the airport. Overall global passenger traffic was down in 2020 by 67% from the previous year,” said Jeremy Bowen, CEO of Cirium.
