Tail Assignment

You know the city pairs and the capacity your airline needs for each route. But how do you know which exact aircraft to assign to each flight? How can you fly more efficiently with your existing fleet? Put the best tail on the right route to ensure you are minimizing total fuel usage.

With Tail Assignment, you can improve aircraft utilization by factoring in crew connections, maintenance, fuel usage, operational costs and constraints for each aircraft in your fleet. With our solution, you can fly more before maintenance checks and align maintenance cycles reducing your fleet maintenance costs.
