    What is Project Aida? ✈️

    Disruption, caused by delays and cancellations in the travel industry amounts to $35 billion lost annually. With ever increasing congestion in airports and airspace, operational disruption is a major pain point in the airline industry. Continuing growth in air travel, places further pressure on the industry exacerbating the negative impact of delays and cancellations.

    Project Aida aims to offer an end to end self service and team operated solution, using the most comprehensive live feeds, communications and re-booking technology, welfare and claims management to empower customers and operations teams to smoothly handle disruptions in the industry.
