Schedule Optimizer

Add, swap, and consolidate flights up to the day of departure

Agile airlines are tapping into near-term revenue opportunities by adjusting schedules within days of departure, versus weeks or months. SlickOR's Schedule Optimizer helps airlines optimize their schedule based on booking behaviors right up to day of operations by:
  • Adding flights
  • Swapping equipment type
  • Cancelling and consolidating flights
  • Repairing the flight schedule disruptions caused by such changes
 
In order to:
  • Adjust and align the flight schedule to passenger demand
  • Maximize passenger load factors and price per seat
  • Improve airline profitability and customer satisfaction

How can an airline align the flight schedule, published many months ago, with actual booking behavior, closer to day of operations?

With the right balance of software, data analytics and knowledge, airlines can add tens of millions of dollars to their bottom line by a willingness to adjust and align the planned flight schedule with the passenger demand.
