Crew management throughout an airline's network is a complex task involving pairing construction, duty assignments and crew tracking.
The crew management solution

The ability to generate a feasible and efficient crew roster is not only key to smooth and profitable operations. It is also an important element of flight safety as well as crew and customer satisfaction. Crew management throughout an airline's network is a complex task involving pairing construction, duty assignments and crew tracking. Availability and training requirements, fair distribution of work and crew preferences all have to be matched with network needs, legal regulations, contractual obligations and economic considerations.

NetLine/Crew supports the entire crew management process, covering all phases from pairing construction to crew rostering to crew tracking and post-flight activities. It provides planners and controllers with a set of decision-support tools, enabling them to focus on creating and maintaining efficient, comprehensive, legal, economic, fair and satisfying duty rosters. A new feature provides crew controllers with an innovative approach for automated hotel management - particularly during critical day of operations changes. This feature enables crew controllers to stay focused on managing crews rather than dealing with hotels.

  • Improve stability, flexibility and crew loyalty
  • Benefit from optimum duty plans and quick recovery
  • Decrease your crew costs by up to 10 %
