As part of its daily business, IBA monitors the myriad of economic and physical changes that impact the commercial aircraft fleet:
- New aircraft orders, deferrals or deliveries,
- Aircraft entering service, being placed in storage, involved in accident or incident, being retired or parted-out,
- Aircraft transactions: purchases and sales or being placed on lease with a new operator and registration,
- Airline mergers or bankruptcies, start-up operations.
IBA’s team of analysts are committed to ensuring the on-going accuracy of the data presented in JetData and the continual validation and instantaneous update of the live system. Data is sourced from:
- IBA’s internal records and data management system. Since IBA’s incorporation in 1988, the company has accumulated an unsurpassable amount of aviation-related data, which has been processed into JetData. Through its daily business with the aviation industry, IBA continuously builds upon its source material.
- IBA routinely dissects all aviation-related trade publications and news feeds to closely monitor any changes in the world aircraft fleet.
- As a recognised data and appraisal partner of Airbus, ATR, Boeing, Bombardier and Embraer, the OEMs are an invaluable source of information in the provision of data, especially aircraft utilisation, which is sourced from operators as well as OEMs themselves.
