Osprey Flight Solutions has today announced a new collaboration with Etihad Airways, the national flag carrier for the UAE, to support and advance the safety of their passengers and crew through the implementation of Osprey’s unique data-led risk analysis system.

Osprey delivers the highest quality of aviation risk management available in the industry today through a seamless integration of cutting-edge technology and industry-leading expertise. The system delivers instant access to global analysis, intelligence, information and data on the aviation security environment. It covers the full spectrum from rapid alerts and live-time reporting, through to fully automated risk assessments for every filed flight plan which continue to be monitored until closed and displayed on a single screen Risk Board.

“…with Osprey we have found a vendor that shares our vision.”

Operating from their international hub in Abu Dhabi, Etihad Airways flies to passenger and cargo destinations around the world, including the Middle East, Africa, Europe, Asia, Australia and North America.

The implementation of Osprey Flight Solutions’ unique risk assessment system, which collects data from more than 200,000 open sources in over 60 languages, will provide Etihad with a consistent and dynamic picture of their entire operational network, enabling them to adapt quickly as a situation changes and, ultimately, increase the safety and security of all flight operations.

Majed Al Marzooqi, VP Security, Safety, and Quality at Etihad Airways said:

“At Etihad the safety of our guests, staff and aircraft is our number one priority. In order to take that to the next level we are always seeking market leading vendors and with Osprey we have found a vendor that shares our vision. Osprey provides us with a rich repository of incidents, pre-alerts, and real-time intelligence via a user-friendly interface that will allow us to stay more than one step ahead of both security and safety threats.”

Andrew Nicholson, CEO at Osprey Flight Solutions, added:

“Our goal is to provide the industry with the highest level of support to understand and identify security risks through instant, accurate and consistent analysis. We are delighted that Etihad has recognised the significant advantages that the Osprey System will provide, and it is a pleasure to work with them to ensure safer and more secure flight operations for their crew, passengers and aircraft.”
