This real time turbulence avoidance solution using aircraft generated data can be used by the operations team, pilots, crews, and passengers.

Real-time Turbulence data allows the crew to avoid dangerous weather and maintain high safety standards in flight.


Increases passenger and crew safety


Prevents potential aircraft damage and associated down time


Real-time wind and temperature data available contributes to improvement in situational awareness

Data-driven turbulence reports assure a pleasant, uninterrupted passenger experience.


Avoids inconsistencies of forecast models and subjective pilot reports


Flight route specific information supports better planning for inflight activities


Common turbulence reporting standard works for any aircraft

Advanced notice of turbulence enables optimal flight planning and fuel efficiency.


Reduces chance of turbulence related maintenance issues and aircraft damage


Fuel cost savings with improved routing


Potential insurance related cost savings due to crew and/or aircraft injury

How does it work?


Global Turbulence Data is collected from aircraft inflight and consolidated through IATA’s Turbulence Aware platform


Anonymized turbulence data is made available through third party applications already used in the flight deck and operations center and IATA MET Viewer


Turbulence data is available in less than one second for pilots, crew, passengers, flight deck applications and operations centers

“I’m a big fan of Turbulence Aware! For the first time, we have real-time objective turbulence information at our fingertips. In the past, all we had were forecasts maps with limited reliability and subjective PIREPS which are hit or miss in quality and quantity. Turbulence Aware adds to safety and passenger comfort by allowing me to make better altitude and routing decisions. At the very least, we’re better equipped to advise our cabin crew and passengers on what to expect. I look forward to future integrations of the data to make it even more accessible within our daily workflow.”
