Like any industry, all airline companies need their parts and components, to be specific, they need commercial airline equipment on the trot. They cannot afford to be kept waiting for their replacement parts. Like most businesses today, the airline industry is a highly competitive one. But this should not be seen as the sole reason for this sense of urgency. The sourcing of the correct parts and components and in the nick of time too contributes towards providing the airline industries’ passengers with their safety.
Airline companies and their pilots and engineers can be shortchanged at times when they need parts and components in a hurry or in an emergency situation. That would have been the case back in the day. But today it is different. Could it be said that the internet explosion is contributing towards the avoidance of high altitude explosions. Or sky to ground crashes. Here’s the thing. You have to admit that such events are extremely rare these days. Of all the crises and disasters you witness nightly on your regular TV news channels, airline and aircraft disasters are not one of them.
Thankfully, it is a rare occurrence indeed. Could it be said that the availability and accessibility of the internet has allowed all stakeholders in this airline business to find what they need so urgently as quickly as it takes for a passenger to book a flight. And that’s another thing. You no longer need to stand in long queues to purchase your airline ticket. You simply tap into your mobile and there you go, it only takes a few minutes. Airline businesses, of course, know this well. It could be stated as fact that they have adapted rather well to the so-called internet of things.
