Modelling A.I. in Economics

Air Canada has installed climate and air quality sensors on its A330 aircraft. (Forecast)

 Air Canada has partnered with In-Service Aircraft for a Global Observing System (IAGOS) to equip one of its Airbus A330 aircraft with special diagnostics sensors. This collaboration aims to collect climate data globally, which will be utilized by the scientific community and forecasting services. The collected data will contribute to research on climate change and air quality worldwide. Air Canada's involvement reflects its commitment to sustainability and supporting valuable scientific research. Additionally, the gathered information will enhance weather data accuracy and improve understanding of evolving weather patterns for airline operations.


Air Canada has installed IAGOS' advanced climate research monitoring devices on one of its A330-300 widebody aircraft with the registration code Fin 939. These devices are capable of measuring various parameters such as ozone, water vapor, greenhouse gases, reactive gases, aerosols, and clouds. The measurements are taken during different phases of flight, including take-off, cruising altitude, and landing.


The A330, along with the A340, is one of the only two aircraft types approved for the IAGOS systems. It operates on Air Canada's trans-Atlantic and trans-continental flights, providing essential data for IAGOS' research.


The IAGOS device is compact and consists of measuring probes that are permanently installed near the aircraft's flight deck.


After each flight, the measurement data is automatically transmitted to the central database of the CNRS (Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique) research center in Toulouse, France.
