We are glad and proud to see that Airshare XYZ project is growing! A few months ago, we started creating monthly updates to inform all the participants about the project status, changes and last, but not least – to share interesting articles and posts from different airports and wildlife management professionals. We believe that sharing the knowledge and experiences is important to all participants, in order to get inspired, find answers or start discussions. Based on positive feedback from project participants, we decided to make these monthly updates available on our website (you can access them here).

To those of you who have not heard about the Airshare XYZ project, we introduce this project as a cross-industry collaboration between more than 13 airlines (such as AeroLogic, Air Dolomiti, British Airways, Brussels Airlines, Condor, Danish Air Transport, Edelweiss Air, Lufthansa, Lufthansa CityLine, Norwegian Air Shuttle, Pegasus, Thomas Cook, Widerøe and other)  and +500 destinations. The project was initiated by Ascend in collaboration with airlines and airports, with the purpose of developing a platform to streamline and easily share safety management related questions.

So, what does it mean to participate in the Airshare XYZ project?

Upon receiving the first request from one of the airlines (flying to that destination), airports are asked to fill out the questionnaire and then approve to share the information. This project enables airports to answer “one time and in one place”, and thereby avoid answering different airlines in multiple formats. Once the data is entered, the airports can share it with a new airline with a single click. When airports update the entered information, it will be automatically updated on the airlines’ subscription too.

The objective of the project is to provide airports with an understanding of what actions are being taken to reduce the presence of wildlife in other airports, and what effect they have, thereby enabling the best possible wildlife control and reduction programs in each individual airport.
