Due to labor laws and maintenance reasons, flight schedules must be fixed up 4 - 6 weeks before the actual flight. This is far too early for economically-minded planners who want to ensure that the right planes with the optimal capacity are available for each route. As the date of a flight approaches, the anticipated capacity utilization can be forecast more precisely. However, flight schedulers cannot use this knowledge to optimize schedules which have already been finalized.
This is where NetLine/Sched Swapper, the innovative optimizer tool for fleet assignment, comes in. This solution allows existing schedules to be optimized at short notice, legally, and with minimal operational impact.
