ch-aviation will be down for a few hours, starting 11:00 UTC on Saturday, June 6th.
Next Saturday, June 6th, ch-aviation’s platform will be down for several hours for scheduled maintenance. We will move from one data centre to another and replace the current server with a new server to provide even better performance of our data services.
We apologize for any inconvenience, and look forward to continuing to serve you.
Seeing growing demand for airline data intelligence in these times of unprecedented changes in the industry, ch-aviation is speeding up our planned fleet data developments to deliver more data for our customers.
During the last 15 months, ch-aviation has launched several new tools and datasets available as subscriptions.
In these times of changing market conditions, we decided to share some details on further fleet data developments to be delivered for ch-aviation subscribers in 2020.
Recently, we extended the forecast period from two to five years for utilisation data. Soon, we will also add generic estimates: utilisation estimates for the last 24 and next 60 months for the aircraft of carriers that are not sharing utilisation data with us. The dataset will include hours, cycles, average stage length and average daily utilisation per month. We understand estimates are not useful for every user, so these estimates will be clearly marked.
We also plan to introduce in-seat video and in-flight connectivity in our fleet data. We will provide indications of whether an aircraft has in-seat video per cabin and in-flight connectivity. In the first stage, it will come without manufacturers and models, but this data set will be available to use for better aircraft search and filtering.
We will provide confirmed and projected lease-end dates as well as “leased at least until” dates for all aircraft on operating leases. Also, the dataset is going to include confirmed and projected retirement dates (as well as “active at least until”).
Additionally, our fleet data will include scrapped and “stored as of” dates for scrapped or inactive aircraft. This will enable us to report the curves from initial delivery to last operation for each MSN of older programmes. Conversion dates from passenger to freighter configuration will be added for aircraft converted after the year 2000.
A new large data set will deliver aircraft histories. You will be able to get:
– Full operator history for all aircraft still active today.
– Partial operator history for 2000-2020 for all aircraft not currently active anymore.
– Times series reporting will come at later point.
We will add airline history data – exact airline operations start and end dates.
Big things are also coming to Aircraft Order search. The orders will be broken down to tail level:
– The current order backlog information will be broken down into line items with weekly reconciliation of deliveries vs. backlog.
– All fleets data fields will be filled for each ordered aircraft as already obtainable (engine choices, seat configurations, operator for lessor ordered aircraft, where already known).
– We will also provide a confirmed or estimated delivery date against each remaining aircraft on order (for now that will be only for firm orders).
We plan to deliver all these enhancements during 2020, understanding the need of quality and reliable data in these turbulent times.
We will keep our promise to deliver Swiss-quality data with easy access at an affordable price. Contact us and let‘s talk about how we can reduce your market intelligence costs during this turbulence.

We just launched a new News search and filtering tool to enable you to stay ahead of the competition with the latest industry updates.
Our 24/7 news desk gives you more than 13 articles a day (on average) and a valuable archive of more than 40,000 news articles.
We are now publishing “Route News” (required subscription of ch-aviation schedules) and “Who’s on the Move” (requires subscription of ch-aviation contacts). “Routes News” is being published at unprecedented levels as airlines cut routes to address a drop in demand. We believe this section will remain with hundreds of weekly updates when airlines start planning resumption of the routes when government-imposed limitations for travel will be lifted.
With a high load of news you’ll need a tool to keep you focused.
Every ch-aviation PRO subscriber now has access to this updated News Search tool, which enables you to create a personal dashboard of news at ch-aviation. The new tool provides the following options:
– Filter news by News Type, to include or exclude Route News and Who’s on the Move from the newsfeed;
– Get news by personal lists or favourites. Using the List Management tool every subscriber has an option to create a number of personal lists to include unlimited number of airlines;
– Filter news by Company and Airport. Also, users are enabled to include a few companies and airports to the newsfeed;
– Search news by text search. For example, searching “Covid-19” enables access to all related news articles;
– Filter news by geography: continents and/or countries;
– Advanced tools also enable you to filter news by aircraft parameters – market group (narrowbody, widebody, regional jet, etc.), manufacturers, aircraft family and type;
– Most search fields allow multiple selection of parameters;
– Users are able to save search parameters and load previously saved searches. This enables you to get a fully personalized news feed.
We also offer a news type cache so your searches and filters will remain for your next visit to ch-aviation. Use “clear search” feature to remove all filters from the news.
We’re continuing to work on News search enhancements, so stay tuned for future updates, including getting immediate alerts about news involving airlines on your radar. Also, in the future you will be able to choose if you want to continue to receive a weekly newsletter or switch to daily frequency, getting full control of the format and time.

Swiss airline intelligence provider ch-aviation announces the launch of aircraft valuation data. A new partnership with Collateral Verifications gives subscribers exclusive access to valuation data with current market values and market lease rates.
Swiss airline intelligence provider ch-aviation has added aircraft
valuations to its world-leading airline data portfolio.
Users of ch-aviation’s “fleets ownership” will gain access to current market values and market lease rates for each of the nearly 30,000 active aircraft around the world. The ch-aviation fleets database also provides tail-by-tail information on technical features, seating, aircraft utilisation and ownership data.
“We have been providing accurate fleet data for the aviation industry for many years and we continue our fast-paced development of new features and datasets for customers”, says ch-aviation CEO Thomas Jaeger. “I’m happy to announce that our partnership with a leading global provider of advisory, technical and valuation services, Collateral Verifications, will enable us to extend fleet data with aircraft valuations. We continue to listen closely to what our customers need, and after launching fleet utilisation data last year, aircraft valuations were the next big step toward a full mix of data needed by our growing aviation industry customer base.”
Gueric Dechavanne, vice president and co-founder of US-based Collateral Verifications LLC, celebrated the new partnership, saying: “I am very excited to be working with the team at ch-aviation to provide our market insights on aircraft values and lease rates. Their efforts in growing and expanding the business has led them to becoming a well-recognized name in the industry for comprehensive and accurate aviation data. Being able to further enhance their products with our data was a great opportunity for us. I look forward to providing the latest aircraft market value and lease rate trends to ensure that cb-aviation customers have what they need to make informed decisions about the industry.”
ch-aviation “fleets ownership” is an addition to its “fleets advanced” database, where subscribers have direct, round-the-clock access to a comprehensive database of commercial aircraft in which they can set the necessary search parameters to filter for the information they need. “Fleets ownership” subscribers from now on also have instant access to aircraft valuation data with current market values and market lease rates provided tail by tail for a wide range of commercial aircraft from 30-seat turboprops to the Airbus A380. ch-aviation also provides total values of the owned fleet for airlines or total value of lessor portfolios.

Fleet Ownership now has access to Current Market Value and Market
Lease Rate for more than 28,000 aircraft in ch-aviation’s fleets
providing values for the following aircraft types:
Our valuations data
gets updated three times per year, in January, May, and
September. The updates are then published at the beginning of the following
month — February, June, and October.
On the specific aircraft page we provide a new section, Aircraft Value, where we show Current Market Value and Market Lease Rate for a specific tail in USD.
Our Aircraft Search now includes the possibility to search aircraft by Current Market Value and Market Lease Rate. You can use those parameters for filtering, together with a combination with other geographical, operator or ownership selectors. For example, you can extract a list of all Airbus 319 in Europe with market lease rates under 100,000 USD per month.
In the lessors profiles the lessor portfolio now includes values of specific aircraft types, including the value of aircraft owned and managed.
The ownership sheet in the Airline profile page is also now expanded with the market values of the owned fleet for the airline:

Finally, we can
proudly present what we’ve been working on lately
besides all the amazing features like new searches,
airline and contact downloads, hours and cycles data, etc.
Our new logo is the same yet different. Recognizable, but more clean, clear and bold. Here’s the story
behind our new logo:
Why did we re-design?
We are growing. We want to show you how much we care about our visual appearance and the message we send. Swiss style, simple
and clean, but bold and fierce. This refreshed look is just a first step in keeping up with trends and
Our old logo carried so much on its shoulders — what started
with three people is now a company with more than 30 worldwide. Data quantity and quality have marked these
years of constant work and growth, which, in the end, led to our success. If you ask us, our focus was on building the quality of information that you rely on,
and for us the inside was always
mattered. Now that we are
confident in our ability to provide your growing needs it’s time to put on some makeup on and shine even brighter.
Our first logo brought us through good (and maybe not that good) times, and it was really growing with us. But it needed more place, more space, more vibe … and we needed to let it go.
Here’s the story behind
our very first logo:
Our original logo was designed almost 10 years ago by a student, Simon Bachofen. We hadn’t had one for nearly a decade, so we thought this might be a good investment. It was a symbolic spending but a great lift off for us.
Interesting fact: The logo was originally designed in a rectangle shape only and every time we had to use the quadrant version we would spend hours trying to get it just right.
Another interesting fact: The first time we placed the logo on a wall, the printer had to do it twice because the contrails were too thin and broke when coming out of the machine!
Dear Old Logo, thank you for all you done for us. A toast to our loved one.
Now we would like to introduce our new look.
worked more than half a year to find a look that fit us, our customers and partners all
around the world. While there are a number of companies that provide airline intelligence and compete on the basis of quantity and
accessibility, at ch-aviation we focus not on the
information itself, but on the value it provides.
We seek to be a well-respected and trustworthy partner who can help achieve your goals. That’s why we are not just a tool for information – we are a measure to success. Our data helps business around the world reach specific goals and thrive.
Aerodynamics is the symbol behind the idea of our new
logo. Aerodynamics gives the edge to achieve goals. We teamed up with small agency, Holly Affair, to
create a new Swiss crown logo and identity for ch-aviation.
Just take a look:
So, what does the logo say?
It says that we are definitely keeping up the
good work but also starting to nurture something new. We have followed the rule
of „something new, something old and something borrowed“ – our new look and new office, together with our „old“ and permanent data quality and industry knowledge along with the color scheme borrowed from our old visual
identity – to create a perfect
We proudly look behind — but bravely forward. Meet the new look of ch-aviation.

The year 2019 was good to us and we couldn’t be more proud of our 2 million unique visitors!
decided to visit us early — we
already celebrated that milestone in mid-December. If you’re expecting a speech, you might just get one – proud work and proud
people stand behind this amazing result!
An average of 10 news articles daily, 50 weekly and 350 monthly made for more than 5,000 news items throughout the year 2019. Our news was the most visited content, contributing to our success.
As a loyal supporter (thank you, thank you), you might be interested in some of the numbers we crunched:
October was a popular month with almost 250,000 users. The first day of the month, Tuesday the 1st, saw the most visits day for us in 2019, when we celebrated 34,555 users in just one day. This also led to the most popular week (29.09. – 05.10.2019.) with 86,313 users in one week.
“The most users per hour” medal goes to Sunday, November 10th at 20:00 (GMT+ 1) with more than 6,000 users!
When it comes to demographics, almost 1 million of our visitors are US (498,257) and UK (450,488) citizens, followed by Germany (81,711) and Canada (81,159). Top cities were London (143,705), Chicago (134,141), Ashburn (59,215) and New York (32,230).
Technology-wise, our users are mostly using our data through their mobile phones (54%), followed by desktop (39%) and tablet (7%). Almost 50% of the traffic is direct traffic, followed by organic searches (33%), referral (13%), e-Mail (4%) and other (4%).
The first month of the new year already brought more than 100,000 visitors, so looks like we’re not stopping with the celebration. Might get back to you on that very soon!
The ch-aviation news team published around 5,000 news articles in 2019. It was an interesting year for the industry with many ups and downs, airlines going out of business but also more new start-ups created.
Our world-leading airline business newsdesk is on duty 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year. Our editors are around the globe and our newsfeed is updated around the clock. Actually, we do not know any other source in the industry with this kind of coverage.
With 2019 coming to an end, we reviewed the most popular articles of the year.
The 3rd most read story is part of another hot topic in 2019: Boeing 737MAX grounding. Back in August, we covered Icelandair’s doubts if the Icelandic airline will replace Boeing fleet with Airbus aircraft: Icelandair likely to change Boeing fleet to Airbus – report. This is the most-read exclusive article available for ch-aviation PRO subscribers only.
The 4th and 5th most-read articles reflect another interesting development of 2019: Airbus’s decision to stop A380 production. After the decision was made by the large aircraft manufacturer, we wrote quite a few articles about airlines’ reaction to this decision.
Thank you for keeping up with our updates about the airline industry. On behalf of our news team from around the world, we wish you a happy and healthy new year with continued success for your business.
