Universal Weather and Aviation has integrated its mission planning and intelligence app Feasibility-IQ with the BART scheduling software system, a product of Portside. This integration provides BART users with easy access to real-time planning intelligence for their business aviation trips.

Executive vice president, digital product management Guido Groeschel says: “This integration provides BART users quick access to the same trip feasibility intelligence used by Universal’s international mission planning experts, directly through BART’s user interface.”

As a result, BART users are able to transmit their trip details to Feasibility-IQ at the push of a button within the BART system, reducing manual inputs and streamlining the trip research and planning process. Users can instantly review detailed requirements for their missions and access advanced trip support intelligence.

Feasibility-IQ equips flight departments with comprehensive, vetted information on customs procedures, logistics, crew and passenger entry requirements, facilities, peak periods, location trends and more for thousands of airports worldwide. It significantly improves the efficiency of flight departments by saving hours of research time per trip leg and equipping operators with intelligence previously only available through Universal Trip Support.

“Offering a broad range of integrations has always been a cornerstone of the BART product suite, and this important integration adds to the many tools and capabilities already included in the BART platform," adds Portside CEO Alek Vernitsky. “We are excited to work with Universal to make feasibility assessments easier for our customers.”

BART users can learn more about this Feasibility-IQ and activating this integration by visiting the Universal Weather website or by speaking to their BART or Universal representatives.
