Load Factor and Tail Assignment Optimization

Reduced passenger volumes driven by the COVID-19 crisis generated a massive number of fleet groundings and crew furloughs worldwide. As air travel slowly resumes, digital tools provide airlines with an opportunity to increase efficiencies in flight scheduling and tail assignment in the long term.

  • Dynamic fleet assignments based on evolving market conditions and scenarios

  • Multiple key performance improvements, including fuel and maintenance cost reductions

  • Extensive “what if” scenario analysis to optimize rostering and pairings based on regional details

  • Real-time crew communications via mobile app, tablets, SMS, and external portals

Must-Have Technologies

  • Real-time situational monitoring that reduces response times to operational problems

  • Proactive alerts that minimize delays or diversions and improve resource utilization

  • Automated aircraft assignment, scenario management, pairing creation, and crew rostering
