Fast track to major cost savings for your airline with Flight Register’s Type-B Message Cost Review
Every day, tens of millions of Type-B messages are sent between airlines and airports. These messages are mission critical, – communicating vital information on cargo tracking, aircraft maintenance, passenger booking/reservations, check-in and departure control data, aircraft flight plans, air traffic control data, Advanced Passenger Information (API) for governments, as well as many other operational essentials.
For airlines, each and every message carries a cost. The ‘per message cost’ is very low. Multiplied by millions of messages however, this costs to an airline per year can be significant, running into millions of dollars for the largest carriers.
What’s worse is that a proportion of this spend is totally wasted with many messages being sent and paid for, even when contracts have expired or been cancelled, sometime for many months or even years.
But your airline Finance team can take action now to optimise your Type-B message costs
Flight Register’s Type-B Message Cost Review and Report provides airlines of all sizes with an in-depth review of their Type B messaging. Our experienced and highly specialised team of data analysts review what messages are being sent, when, and to who, identifying potential waste and overspend.
We then provide you with a report including detailed and specific actionable recommendations on how to significantly reduce your annual spend. We are confident that we can help your airline reduce Type-B messaging costs as we have for many of our airline customers across the world.
*Potential cost savings per airline will vary depending on size of airline, detail of messaging contracts and number of messages being sent.
