Optimise fleet utilisation and allocate within a broad set of constraints, such as routes, schedules, maintenance, aircraft type and disruption management.
How do you minimise inefficiencies in aircraft allocation, drive effective aircraft planning, integrate unplanned maintenance constraints, cope with capacity variability, operational changes, short- term maintenance, route restrictions and unexpected disruption?
A typical airline has a team spending some 3–4 hours to prepare a single day’s optimised plan and a 24-hour shift to cope with unplanned variability and dynamic disruptive events – and complexity can quickly compound with each interlinked, unfolding issue.
Tightly planned schedules can quickly be thrown out of kilter by last-minute impacts. Weather, airport delays, airframe or engine failures or crew unavailability can soon jeopardise the airline’s cost base, bottom line and operations.
IFS Tail Planning Optimisation and Assignment was developed in collaboration with one of the world’s leading airlines as part of the broader civil aviation solution from IFS.
Optimising the utilisation of your fleet is like synchronising six cogs in a gear system:
