Data Services and Advisory with focus on Airline Industry Data: Fleets, Networks, Schedules, Contacts, Airline IT Systems. Delivered custom made to answer your questions.

Worldwide Airline Intelligence since 1998

For over 20 years ch-aviation has been providing decision makers around the globe with relevant and up to date airline intelligence and insightful news on the industry.
Founded in Chur in Switzerland, ch-aviation has become an influential airline intelligence provider and one of the very few Swiss aviation success stories.
While ch-aviation is widely known for its news coverage, airline profiles and aircraft data, our core business is providing data services to a wide range
of influential companies in the airline industry. Today ch-aviation welcomes more than 1.8 million users each year and is proud to count
hundreds of companies in the airline industry as its customers. Yet, we are still small enough to care about the details
that have always made the difference between good and outstanding data.

Methodology of Research and Quality Assurance

  • Manual research

    ch-aviation does manually and automatically research all of its data through its own research department. Except for raw schedule data which is licensed from OAG, we do not buy any other third party data. All data has to be verified and crosschecked before it is approved for publication.

  • Quality Assurance & Implementation

    After the research process is finished, the data is handed over to the Quality Assurance department. As a company policy we do not publish new data sets without QA clearance. Whenever new aircraft types, airlines or major data projects are added to the database, quality reviews and approval from the management board is mandatory.

  • Monitoring

    We do monitor our database through manual and automated processes that run through it at least once a week. The Quality Assurance department draws several samples every week to verify accuracy and quality of the data. We also use web watching software to monitor several thousand airline and aviation websites for the purpose of keeping the airline knowledge base up to date.

  • Maintenance

    ch-aviation does perform regular and routine database maintenance tasks. For exact maintenance intervals please see the Maintenance section below.
