Optimal planning & operations
in airlines


The suite of optimization tools for airlines

A framework aimed to optimize planning and operations

With our expertise on the field of air transport engineering we have designed Daedalus as an indispensable tool in the airline operations planning flow. The suite is composed by three modules that covers a wide variety of planning and operational stages: Rotations Builder, Tail Assigner, and Operations Manager. The modules are integrated to maximize productivity, but they can also be used separately, as standalone tools.

Airline Operations Planning

Rotations Builder

Generation of reliable aircraft rotations

An optimized network is vital for having smooth plans and operations. The Rotations Builder acts on the early stages of the airline operations planning phase. It provides:

Tail Assigner

Efficient, robust tail assignment

The tail assignment has a direct impact in airline operations planning. Optimized plans not only reduce costs, but also minimize the impact of disruptions. The Tail Assigner allows:


Operations Manager

Real-time decision making & disruptions recovery

Dealing with operations in airlines is a complex task that requires decision-making under pressure. Operations Manager assists managers by providing them optimal recover proposals against disruptions. Its main features are:
