VIENNA, Va., July 18, 2023 — Spire Global, Inc. (NYSE: SPIR) (“Spire” or “the Company”), a global provider of space-based data, analytics and space services, was selected by RDC Aviation Ltd (RDC), a global technology and data services provider for the air transport industry, to supply global flight and aviation insights.

Spire will provide its Flight Report, which aggregates hundreds of millions of satellite and terrestrial ADS-B positions to provide actionable flight, aircraft and airline metadata.

RDC will integrate Spire’s data into its AirportCharges product to analyze airport user charges and en-route navigation costs including landing fees, passenger charges and taxes for its database of over 3,000 airports. Additionally, Spire’s data will be used in RDC’s market intelligence product Apex to complement its published departures data with actual flown departures and refine route profitability calculations through accurate flown data.

We’re delighted to have signed this partnership with Spire. Having been aware of their data and capabilities for some time, we knew there was the potential to enhance our applications, core data and back-office processes. However, once we started working with the team at Spire, we quickly discovered a number of unique and exciting customer-facing use-cases that will allow us to provide powerful insights for our airport and airline clients.

Peter Hind, CEO, RDC
