UTC Aerospace Systems relaunched the company's Aircraft Data Management solution as InteliSight™ with added functionality that integrates hardware and software applications to deliver critical data, and communication links including access to real-time weather and aircraft health and performance information, to flight crews and airline operators. Access to this data allows operators to avoid turbulent weather, increasing safety and enhancing passenger experience, in addition to aircraft component health monitoring which can improve operational efficiency. The InteliSight platform is aircraft and mobile technology agnostic and can be tailored to specific operator requirements. The platform has been certified on a wide range of aircraft platforms and validated with major global airworthiness authorities.
Intelligent flight for airlines requires collecting, analyzing and delivering the right data to the right people, at the right time, in order to make decisions that will improve safety, situational awareness and/or operating efficiency, all while reducing crew and operator workloads. The InteliSight platform integrates and delivers actionable data via the aircraft interface device (AID) in conjunction with mobile and/or hosted applications to enable flight crews and ground operations to make decisions ranging from optimal flight profiles to predictive maintenance. The open platform design of the AID allows operators to host various applications from a range of providers, including those developed by UTC Aerospace Systems and third parties. The ability to host these applications will help expand the functionality of the AID throughout the life of the aircraft. With a focused shift to proactive strategies through advanced data and predictive analytics, the InteliSight platform cost effectively gives operators the ability to solve current and future challenges. With a modular and scalable hardware platform that's upgradeable via on-wing software updates, InteliSight can adapt to technology advancements and ongoing user needs. "UTC Aerospace Systems has a longstanding history of enabling safe, cost-effective and technologically advanced flight operations," said Steve Rausch, general manager for sensors and integrated systems. "The InteliSight platform is at the core of our aircraft data management system, providing each operator the critical data they need to optimize flight operations and minimize disruptions from unscheduled maintenance."

United Airlines (UAL) Monday announced it is expanding its schedule at its East Coast hubs in New York/Newark and Washington-Dulles. The network adjustments build on United's leading route network at New York/Newark where the airline serves more destinations than any other carrier from the New York City metro area. Additionally, the changes to its Washington-Dulles schedule will offer more customers easy access to the nation's capital and seamless connections to flights throughout the United States, Canada, Europe, Asia and the Caribbean. Beginning in October, United will maximize the unique strengths of each hub by adding new destinations, additional frequencies and larger two-cabin aircraft. The schedule adjustments are designed to offer more nonstop flights to destinations popular with New York area customers while reallocating largely connecting passenger flights on short-haul routes to United's hub at Washington-Dulles. United will transition service between New York/Newark and Chattanooga, Tennessee; Ithaca, New York, and Scranton, Pennsylvania to Washington-Dulles. "We approached these schedule adjustments with our customers in mind, knowing that we wanted to create a schedule that offers customers beginning their travel in the New York City area convenient flights to many of the business and leisure destinations they frequent the most," said Ankit Gupta, United's VP of domestic network. "Since more of our customers begin their travel from New York/Newark than any other United hub city, we've created a more customer friendly schedule that removed connection times and provided convenient nonstop service to multiple U.S. destinations." New York/Newark (EWR) Offering customers more flights to more destinations than any other airline in the New York City region, United is increasing nonstop service between New York/Newark and 15 destinations, beginning October 4, 2018.

New service to Palm Springs and year-round service to Key West United will begin nonstop seasonal mainline service beginning December 19 through March 30, 2019, between New York/Newark and Palm Springs, California and increase regional jet service between New York/Newark and Key West, Florida from seasonal to year round effective October 4, 2018. Washington-Dulles (IAD) "As we set out to build this schedule for our customers, we considered Washington-Dulles' more optimal schedule offering for connecting flights and conducted an in-depth analysis of some of the short-haul flights scheduled from our Newark hub," said Gupta. "We determined that by shifting certain regional flights from Newark to Dulles, our customers will have more schedule flexibility and better options for connections on regional routes."
