Aviation 3.0?

Perhaps a bit later, maybe not. But it's still coming. Closed Loop is ready. Will you be? Take a few minutes and have a look at our industry essay here and you'll understand why we think looking under the hood of Trajectory Based Operations, TBO for short, will unfold the future of aviation.

TBO will affect everything we do.
It will deliver efficiency dividends to every part of the operational ecosystem, and the environment.

Trajectory Based

Closed Loop helps airlines iron out the kinks, and assures your airline's readiness and capability to take advantage of optimised trajectories, improve environmental outcomes and navigate the changing landscape as TBO becomes the reality for everyone. TBO will change just about everything airlines do

Breaking News

Stop the presses; it's time to stop focussing on COVID!

Closed Loop continues to develop strategies to accelerate thinking away from COVID to the next phase of the global airline industry.

Collaboration and Coordination; the way out?

Borders open and close again, making planning, operations and forecasting difficult. But even so, it's time to move on and start looking forward.

Throughout the pandemic, we've heard time and again about the need for collaboration, coordination and harmonisation. To do our bit, Closed Loop is holding a series of virtual 'round tables' discussing the different aspects of the industry's COVID recovery and possible forward pathways after that. But what does it look like? We think TBO is the key.

For the details and bookings, go to our Virtual Round Tables page.

The New Usual

The industry continues to deal with the immediate effects of COVID, and many have no appetite to look anywhere else; survival mode and a "cash is king" mindset rules. Unless we look up from the COVID despondency, soon, critical opportunities will be missed with far-reaching and potentially dire implications for the airline and aviation industries.

Importantly, the New Usual is still being written and the more airlines helping to write the script, the better the outcome will be for everybody. Join the_Loop to have your say.

A Video Series for the Times

Closed Loop has developed a video series, the New Usual, that looks at potential opportunities for the industry, challenges entrenched mindsets and looks forward to what the New Usual might mean for the industry collectively and what it will mean to remain fixated on the rearview mirror. Take a look and let us know what you think.

Transformation and efficiencies from arrival to departure, throughout the airport precinct and soon to require SWIM and TBO considerations. Connectivity, EFB, Flight Tracking, Fight Watch, Turbulence, Space Weather SWIM and then, there's TBO.

Balancing Digitisation, Transformation and Competitive Differentiation with Critical Industry Imperatives

"The only constant in the industry is change", is an often repeated axiom, but the pace of that change is about to move up a notch or two and become more demanding than ever. Moreso on the back of COVID-19.

"Aviation 3.0" (our label) will change the landscape of the industry. It will become necessary for Airlines to balance their competitive differentiators and cooperation with competitors at the same time to ensure the sector can continue to function. Navigating the new journey will be crucial for survival as new paradigms take shape.

What will it take for the industry and airlines to be ready? Join "the Loop" and find out what everyone is thinking.
