Risk Analytics

Accurately track and manage the operational risks associated with aircraft in an asset portfolio

Global events have increased the need for aviation financiers and insurers to accurately monitor aircraft movements and ground stays globally. Fines for incorrect operations of aircraft can range from several hundred thousand to a million dollars. Businesses seek to proactively monitor and mitigate regulatory, financial, repossession and jurisdictional risk associated to aircraft assets in a custom portfolio.

Fast, flexible, and configurable, Cirium’s new Risk Analytics Asset Watch tool enables aircraft lessors, banks, asset managers and insurers to monitor and benchmark aircraft utilization, identify flight history of aircraft and access the exact location, duration and context of aircraft on the ground.

Businesses can combine this with CO2 emissions data within the tool to additionally monitor emissions of a portfolio of aircraft and scenario model to reduce carbon footprint.

Gain access to the most complete aircraft data and analytics combined with industry standard flight intelligence via a flexible and easy-to-use configurable analytics tool.

Identify the historical locations of assets in a portfolio

Gain access to Cirium’s advanced tracked utilization data and satellite-tracked flight data providing the most complete coverage of all modern aircraft globally. Since integrating satellite data from Aireon, the aircraft identification coverage has increased to 91% for scheduled flights and from 10,000-15,000 flights per day to 50,000-60,000 for unscheduled flights. Leverage industry standard ground stay information and identify any risk associated with a ground stay.

Inform decisions to mitigate any losses

Customize visualizations surfacing high-quality data with ease and speed, saving time and effort spent on analyzing aircraft movements and ground stays in a portfolio. Quicker action based on reliable data can lead to effective reporting on aircraft utilization and can enable the mitigation of any financial impact because of operations to sanctioned countries, repossessions, or global macro events.

Spot signs of aircraft misuse

Create custom portfolios of aircraft and use filters and thresholds to generate Aircraft of Interest to keep track of. Apply multiple filters such as country and airport groupings and dive into the MSN and detailed flight information, and thresholds to Total Flights and Ground Stay data.

Compare and benchmark aircraft portfolios

Search and filter by multiple attributes including individual aircraft, operator, lessor and more and compare custom portfolios. Benchmark a portfolio and their key metrics against other portfolios or global fleet averages, comparing key utilization and emissions metrics to inform ESG reporting or strategies to reduce CO2 emissions and identify low aircraft utilization.

Unrivaled tracked aircraft utilization and ground stay analysis

Proactively monitor and mitigate regulatory risk because of current assets’ operations into sanctioned countries, financial risk because of aircraft being flown when it shouldn’t be, repossession risk because of operations into conflict zones and early signs of slowdown in operations. Better manage aircraft assets according to contract terms and industry standards.

Improve the monitoring of aircraft in a portfolio and mitigate any financial impact and forms of non-compliance. Proactively monitor and mitigate any operational risk associated to assets, identify when flying and/or spending time on the ground in sanctioned countries, into conflict zones and more.

Analyze the duration, location, and reason for an aircraft being grounded. Gauge possible risks associated with ground stays and understand if policy wording/limits have been breached or sanctions violated.

Add CO₂ emission insights

With the fast, flexible and configurable Risk Analytics tool, businesses can add CO₂ emission benchmarking and scenario modeling to the tool. Emissions calculations are based on the EmeraldSkyTM methodology. Identify carbon emissions of a portfolio and quantify how next generation aircraft types or aircraft utilization are lowering or could lower carbon footprint. Compare emissions of a portfolio with competitors and industry standards.
