Finnair becomes first airline in the world to use alertness modelling

20 June 2011

Finnair has introduced an alertness model in the creation of crew schedules the first airline in the world to do so. The new scientifically determined and experimentally verified system has been formulated with the aid of the ‘Boeing Alertness Model (BAM)’. The model assesses a pilot’s state of alertness and promotes flight safety and wellbeing in work.

“‘The cornerstone of Finnair’s flight operations is safety. Finnair continually develops operating practices that support safety and wellbeing in work and takes proactive steps to reduce possible safety risks. That’s why we wanted to be involved in the Jeppesen research from the very start,'” says Finnair’s Vice President, Safety and Quality Management Antti Aukia.
