FlightGlobal, a leading aviation information group, has acquired two pioneering US businesses that will help create a powerhouse in data analytics for the global air travel sector. Diio, a provider of airline market intelligence tools, and FlightStats, a pioneer in flight data services, will now sit alongside FlightGlobal’s existing portfolio of fleet, aircraft finance and schedules data services. With these latest transactions, FlightGlobal emerges with a world-class air travel data and analytics capability, building on the acquisition of the Innovata airline schedules business in 2014. Diio and FlightStats already work closely with FlightGlobal as long-standing commercial partners and significant users of the group’s schedules data. Diio, headquartered near Washington DC, provides a portfolio of online intelligence tools for the global air transport and travel industry, both under its own brand and those of its partners. The company’s flagship Diio Mi service brings together schedules, fares and traffic data into a single online market intelligence toolset, used extensively by airlines and airports principally in North America. In cooperation with the International Air Transport Association (IATA) and Airlines Reporting Corporation (ARC), Diio powers such products as IATA PaxIS, ARC DataXpert Market Intelligence and IATA/ARC Direct Data Solutions (DDS). Diio also hosts the SRS Analyser schedules analysis tool, developed for international markets in cooperation with FlightGlobal and IATA. FlightStats, based in Portland, Oregon, is a pioneer in making real-time global flight data available to power services and decision-support tools for many of the world’s leading airlines, travel agencies, mobile app developers and online services. Its cutting-edge technology combines vast volumes of data from over 400 sources, including live aircraft tracking, to build an evolving picture of the status of flight arrivals and departures across the airline system. The company is already actively working with FlightGlobal on ways to help clients improve workflow processes around flight disruptions and to gain insights into the cause of delays.
