AIRLINE OPERATIONS

Optimizing the Passenger Experience

Airports and Airlines > Aeroplane > Dassault Systèmes®

Airline services are expected to be reliable and on time. Less than that results in unhappy customers. At the same time airlines operate in a global environment where success is determined by the interplay of many factors. Effective airline planning relies on your ability to balance cost per available seat mile (CASM) with employee satisfaction, customer satisfaction and the complex constraints in every aspect of your business. Add to the mix daily disruptions, changing legislation and fluctuating traffic for an extremely challenging planning puzzle. The solution requires a global approach using a fully integrated and reliable planning platform, to optimize your crew, fleet network and ground handling operations.
