maximize overall fleet & network profitability

maximize overall fleet & network profitability

> solutions > planning

Your challenges

To run a profitable airline you must decide which aircraft types you need, which routes to fly, how often, at what particular times, and using which fleet.

Existing incomplete solutions

These decisions are complex and conflicting, and all solutions provided until now were forced to ignore these conflicts, in order to reduce computational complexity.

The ultimate solution: PlanUnified

Our innovative solution, PlanUnified, changes this. It accounts for the interaction of all these conflicting decisions. As a result it outperforms all competing optimizers.

Competitors' optimizers (to reduce computational complexity) avoid the interaction of conflicting decisions by splitting them sequentially: the output of one decision is passed as the input of the next.
In contrast, PlanUnified has an efficient algorithm for the Unified Optimization of fleet & network decisions. This algorithm simultaneously considers all constraints, costs, and O&D revenues.

How do we obtain more profits?

To answer this, consider how these decisions interact:
Network planning selects the routes and flight times that maximize revenue from O&D passengers. Network Planning interacting Fleet Assignment However, the times, available seats, and costs ultimately depend on the fleet selection.
Thus we can improve the network by choosing the right aircraft type, at the right time, in the right place. Our competitors' one-way method cannot do this.

Most importantly, we can simultaneously access both O&D revenues (network) and costs (fleet). This is the the only way to truly improve network profits. In contrast, our competitors' sequential method separates revenue and cost decisions.
