FlightPath3D celebrate with Airbus

FlightPath3D has been recognised for its app and innovation in the first online hackathon run by Airbus.

Responding to the news that the company had been recognised as ‘Preferred App’ and jointly acknowledge as the ‘Best Innovation’, FlightPath3D president Duncan Jackson said: “Now more than ever, our industry needs to realise the potential of digital transformation. There is synergy in our app community, and we observed our map being integrated into more services, and more services using our API features than any other app. We integrated duty-free merchandising, advertising, and the ability to buy with a payment solution into our map. Third party apps used our destination content, street maps, and flight tracker to augment their already highly-functional apps.”

The Airbus hackathon was designed to develop onboard digital solutions on an Airbus open software platform, to support better operations in a post-COVID world, and was part of the company’s #KeepTrustInAirTravel initiative.

FlightPath3D ceo, Boris Veksler, added: “We leveraged our HTML/WebGL streaming 3D map and via our Open API platform integrated 3rd party content into our map, and vice versa provided map features into third party apps. The innovation we achieved is linked to the openness of the Airbus platform, and to the eco-system of app developers that are compatible with the platform.”
