Air India introduces Airport Briefing, a new tool to help pilots mitigate risks better

Campbell Wilson, CEO of Air India, in a letter addressed to employees on October 6 said that the company has introduced a new tool called Airport Briefing, which will help AI pilots mitigate risks better by enhancing their situational awareness.

“… Following the standardisation of EFBs and introduction of DocuNet, we have now introduced Airport Briefing – another tech tool that will significantly enhance situational awareness of our pilots,” the letter read.

Airport Briefing allows pilots to use their iPad EFB device to develop an accurate picture of the operating conditions of airports in the network, preparing them to handle unexpected situations and thereby mitigate risks, Wilson said. The introductory sessions saw the attendance of more than 300 pilots, he added.

The Air India CEO also spoke about the five-day Managing Global Airlines course run by Boeing and Cranfield University, exclusively for Air India. He attended the final session of the course before flying out of Delhi.

The course covered a broad base of topics such as aviation law, airline economics, alliances, revenue management and cargo among others and was attended by 40 people from various teams, including fleet acquisition, network planning, cargo strategy, aircraft leasing, product and strategic procurement.

“These courses are part of a broader initiative to expose ourselves to outside best practices, upskill and continually improve our capabilities so that we can mix it with all-comers. In that regard, I want to take a moment to acknowledge the work done by our L&D Team that has enabled around 9,300 employees to undertake various in-person training programs since April,” Wilson said.
