Network and Fleet Planning

A market-driven approach

Network and Fleet planning is the basis of good commercial airline planning as understanding and modelling true market demand lies at the heart of decisions about which routes to fly and with what frequency, helping optimise the existing fleet schedule, develop new ones for start up airlines or select new aircraft types altogether.

Network Planning is one of the first steps in the Commercial Planning Process, absolutely critical to creating a demand-driven airline.

Athena Aviation addresses our client needs by bringing network experience in line roles together with industry leading tools and methodologies that allow us to work with clients on validating and calibrating results that give airlines and their investors confidence about the future.

How we can help

Our approach is based on the experience and know-how of experts with decades of network and schedule planning experience. This allows us to be flexible in meeting the needs of our customers:

  • in airline with small fleets, we can run basis network evaluations and optimise schedules on a spreadsheet
  • more complex problems – large airlines with significant fleets, multiple types, and alliance scenario analysis – require us to work with true Origin and Destination data and use complex modelling tools to provide a comprehensive and robust analysis.
