The new solution builds on the foundation of the Quintiq proven technology, applying the company's extensive planning and scheduling expertise and software development capabilities to solving the specific challenges facing the passenger aviation industry.
The Quintiq Aviation Planning & Optimization Solution offers a fully integrated solution for tactical planning, operational scheduling and real-time event management. It supports the comprehensive workforce and resource planning of all aviation operations, including aircrafts, crew, gates and ground staff.

Addressing real challenges today; supporting growth tomorrow
In today's global aviation industry, airlines are buffeted by rising fuel prices, changing employment regulations and rapid shifts in consumer preferences in the wake of escalating and spreading threats of terrorism.
Traditional airline business models have fundamental problems with operating costs and productivity, making them ill equipped to support sustained profitability in rapidly changing environments. Bankruptcy, liquidation and consolidation of major network carriers are all painfully commonplace. And, recently a number of American airliners indicated that they suffered from delays because of their "inability" to consistently position aircraft and crews as needed to execute the flight schedule on time.
"The new Quintiq Aviation Planning & Optimization Solution combines our expertise in planning and scheduling with a thorough understanding of aviation needs developed through our work with the industry over the past several years," said Martijn van Gils, Marketing Director at Quintiq. "This solution is an excellent example of the value of the unique Quintiq approach, which provides a foundation for further growth by enhancing the flexibility in planning the resources as an aviation service supplier."
Business-wide integration and benefits

It enables planning across multiple structures, taking into consideration multiple planning levels and multiple resources - a capability that is one of the unique aspects of the Quintiq solution.
