Welojets co-founder Alfredo Lisdero believes that AI will revolutionize aviation as we know it. He shares his vision for the future and explains why industry providers should leverage the technology during the early stages to unlock its full potential.
AI is a polarizing subject, to say the least. Many industries are beginning to understand how they can leverage this technology and travel is no exception. At Welojets we believe AI will change the industry, especially from a safety and consumer-end perspective.
Chatbots to assist travel planning and booking aside, AI-powered systems can improve flight safety, and in-flight connectivity while also having the potential to revolutionize quoting and fleet optimization.
Here are the top-five AI breakthroughs that we believe will impact the industry in the foreseeable future:
Enhanced Flight Safety and Maintenance
AI-powered systems have the potential to significantly improve flight safety in private jet aviation. These systems can analyze massive amounts of data in real-time, identifying potential risks and providing pilots with critical information to make informed decisions.
AI can also predict and detect potential mechanical issues before they become severe, allowing for preventive maintenance, and reducing the risk of in-flight emergencies.
Improved Flight Efficiency and Route Optimization
AI can optimize flight routes by considering various factors such as weather conditions, airspace restrictions, and fuel efficiency. This results in more direct routes, reducing flight times and fuel consumption.
AI-assisted Flight Systems
While AI has the potential to increase automation in-flight systems, it is important to note that it is not expected to lead to fully autonomous private jets.
Instead, AI can assist pilots in various tasks, such as landing in challenging conditions or managing complex flight systems, reducing workload and human error.
By enhancing pilot decision-making and performance, AI will play a crucial role in improving safety and efficiency in private jet aviation.
AI-driven Quoting and Fleet Optimization
AI can revolutionize quoting and fleet optimization in the private jet aviation sector. By analyzing historical data, market trends, and customer preferences, AI can accurately predict demand and match it with fleet availability.
This allows operators to optimize aircraft utilization, reduce operational costs, and provide more competitive pricing to clients.
Additionally, AI-driven algorithms can evaluate various factors such as aircraft performance, fuel consumption, and maintenance costs, enabling operators to make informed decisions about fleet composition and expansion.
The irreplaceable human touch
While AI is primed to improve aviation safety and end-user experience, I still believe that the human touch is irreplaceable in many aspects of the private jet experience.
For starters, a tailored concierge approach is more effective with a dedicated professional that understands the needs of a customer in a certain situation and has a case-by-case approach to provide an improved customer experience.
Furthermore, human candor is also a unique trait – knowing how to read a customer and provide a friendly solution to any problems along the way.
Whether it be changing an itinerary last-minute, coordinating ground transportation at the destination, or managing a medical urgency that may arise before embarking, will always be best served by a human.
And the facts are that private aviation clients also still prefer this facet during the process – speaking to a human will consistently enhance the exclusivity of the overall experience.
Overall, leveraging AI in aviation in the early stages of this breakthrough is in the best interest of all industry providers.
Whether using the technology for predictive maintenance, customer service, or fleet optimization, it will have a relevant role moving forward to continue increasing safety standards and end-user travel experience.
