CLEAR | January 25, 2023
On January 24, 2023, the consumer services company - CLEAR launched its identity verification technology at Long Beach Airport, making travelers' identity screening quick and effortless.
CLEAR's network is specialized to verify the identities of its members by scanning their eyes or fingers instead of identity proofs like a driver's license. After verification, the CLEAR ambassador will take the member through a specific lane to TSA physical security. It will save the time of the member waiting for security screening approval. This new launch is set to generate a profit of around 1.2 million dollars, along with creating 23 job opportunities.
Members, who opt for the CLEAR Plus feature, will get access to this new identity-verification technology, which would cost around $16 per month, billed annually. This membership is discounted for American Express, United Airlines, and Delta Air Lines members. The newly-registered active members who are military, veterans, and government officials will also be charged less. Besides, the member can also add family members to their CLEAR Plus account, which would cost $60 for one adult per year.
CLEAR's CEO, Caryn Seidman-Becker, said, "California continues to be an incredibly important market for CLEAR, and we're excited to kick off 2023 by further expanding our footprint in Southern California. Launching at Long Beach Airport means locals and tourists alike can enjoy our predictable, friction-free travel experience in even more places – which is all part of our mission to transform the way people live, work and travel."

CLEAR has been making identity verification frictionless since 2010. Its new lanes are accessible at San Diego International Airport, Ontario International Airport, Palm Springs International Airport, Los Angeles International Airport, and Long Beach Airport. In addition, the company also features a free LAX Fast Lane, a virtual queueing pilot. This feature allows travelers to plan ahead of time and even book a time slot for a party at the security checkpoint.

ATP | January 20, 2023
On January 19, 2023, ATP, which offers information services and software solutions to the aviation industry, informed that it is planning to introduce a new set of features to its Flightdocs Operations software platform.
The revamped product ensures smooth flight scheduling and trip planning using improved communication features that optimize data flow. The updates will be part of the new product showcase at NBAA's Schedulers and Dispatcher Conference in Nashville (Tennessee) from January 24 to 26, 2023.
Flightdocs Operations provides flight operations management software to schedulers and dispatchers that utilizes real-time data and resource availability. The platform allows users to manage crew, create trips, and communicate with team members from a single, up-to-date calendar view.
ATP ensures that passengers' personally identifying information is kept private and safe by using strong data and software controls. It is also fully cloud-based and ISO-certified.

Mike Profit, COO of ATP, shares, "The unique aspect about this groundbreaking tool is that it's one of the first and only cloud-based web applications on the market for flight operations and scheduling that is fully integrated with a maintenance tracking platform." He adds, "With this product, we are breaking down silos between maintenance and flight operations departments to eliminate any miscommunication between the two and improving operating efficiency in order to maximize aircraft uptime."

Cirium's 2022 On-Time Performance rankings examine the world's top airports and airlines. This study honors the aviation industry's on-time performance.
Cirium, a global aviation analytics leader, named Azul Airlines the best on-time airline for 2022. This week, the Cirium 2022 On-Time Performance Review came out. It is the world's standard for how well airlines and airports do.
Last year, many airports and airlines had trouble with delays, disruptions, and insufficient resources. North America and Europe were significantly affected. However, Asia-Pacific is trying to break free from COVID's grip. As a result, many airports and airlines performed well despite the weather.
Delta Air Lines won the Cirium Platinum Award for operational excellence for the second consecutive year. This award considers an airline's on-time record, operational complexity, and passenger flight disruption handling.
Regional champions were Delta in North America, Thai AirAsia in Asia Pacific, Oman Air in the Middle East and Africa, Azul in Latin America, and Iberia in Europe. Haneda Airport turned out to be the world's best airport. An airport's departure time is considered on time if it's within 15 minutes.
Cirium's 2022 On-Time Performance Review's top airlines and airports deserve praise for ramping up operations quickly after a pause. Delta Air Lines performed well in Cirium's 2022 On-Time Performance Review, bringing passengers to their destinations on time, while the sector improved in 2022.
In 2022, airlines struggled to predict demand. Throughout the pandemic, they were discontented. Once the demand picked up, it reversed course in the face of new COVID variants. Last year, when the recovery started, airlines, airports, air navigation providers, and other parties were short on staff and resources. Delayed flights also caused problems. As the industry added staff, operations improved, and 2023 looks promising for the aviation industry.
