Cirium Launches the First Airline Routes Tool Based on Satellite-Based Flight Tracking
- In an industry first, the Airline Routes tool analyzes an airline’s routes using satellite-based flight tracking data to identify actual flights flown by aircraft type
- Businesses can identify aircraft demand and where airlines are growing or reducing their network to factor development opportunities or risks into decision making
An analysis using the tool shows how Indian low-cost-carrier IndiGo flew 172 flights between

It uses applied analytics to derive routes flown by airlines based on satellite-based flight tracking and fuses this with advanced fleet data.
The new premium Routes tool is part of Ascend Profiles, a visual descriptive analytics tool which enables businesses to quickly view aircraft intelligence by airline or lessor.
Businesses such as aircraft lessors, banks or aircraft manufacturers are empowered to identify the aircraft flown by route for 1,700 airlines and factor development opportunities or risk into their decision making.
By leveraging satellite-based flight tracking data the tool identifies what routes and aircraft airlines actually flew rather than what they planned to fly providing the most accurate flight completion picture.
“Understanding which aircraft an airline is actually flying and on what routes is critical to identify where aircraft demand may be and whether an airline is growing or reducing their network.”
According to Ascend Profiles, IndiGo has a fleet of 306 aircraft – (273 in service and 33 in storage), plus 501 on order. Of the delivered fleet, 36% are on operating lease.
