Southwest Airlines Flies High With Real-Time Flight Data
Source: TIBCO Software
In the airline industry, Southwest Airlines is considered a true maverick. By shaking up the rules of flying and improving upon inefficient industry norms, Southwest has quickly grown to the fourth-largest domestic carrier. SWIFT is a flight management tool consisting of applications for managing the fleet of aircraft and dispatching flights. After months of development, however, it became clear that developing a real-time messaging tool that could interface with SWIFT and ensure the delivery of necessary flight data required expert help. After carefully evaluating messaging solutions, Southwest Airlines chose TIBCO SmartSockets.
