Managing change in airline operations with crew pairing optimization

Crew planning and optimization are central to any airline´s operations, cost management, and customer service delivery. Typically, airlines assign thousands of employees to hundreds of flights with aircrafts varying considerably in size, equipment, and configuration. Crew skills, experience, and preferences must be considered, along with company policies, union rules, and labor regulations.

Within this highly dynamic environment, having the right tools and data to make complex and cost-aware decisions is critical. Whether at the planning stage or adapting to last-minute changes, scenario-based models make a big difference.

This white paper examines common uses of “what-if” modeling in the airline crew planning and optimization contexts, including negotiating contract terms, responding to new operational realities, understanding the impact of regulatory changes, and expanding the business.
