More security and efficiency in aviation
Precise weather forecasts offer optimal support for airport management and ground handling, thus increasing safety and efficiency in day-to-day operations.
Challenges for the aviation industry
Airport operators are very concerned with improving the quality and efficiency of their services. Weather plays an important role in this regard. Central challenges are the optimization of capacities, deployment planning, the planning of winter services, prevention of severe weather-related accidents and minimization of ground handling stops. For example, approaching thunderstorms require the closure of runways, and certain activities such as refueling cannot be carried out in the event of severe weather alerts.
Efficient airport management with UBIMET weather data
UBIMET’s world-leading technologies are applied in the Weather Cockpit to ensure efficiency and safety for the aviation industry. All data are supplied via the online portal, which is tailored to the exact location and specific requirements. Critical parameters in aviation, e.g., wind speed, wind direction, risk of lightning strike or the temperature at all elevations are taken into consideration in the Weather Cockpit. Via the API interface UBIMET:Connect, weather data can be integrated in existing applications in a fast and easy manner.
