Spirit Airlines focuses on technology

New intelligent flight planning system implemented

The US low-cost carrier Spirit Airlines has bet on a new technology to optimize the scheduling of connections in view of the beginning of the summer high season, in which a strong demand for travel by passengers is expected. The company's goal is to limit the risk of a recurrence of the chaos recorded last year, with long queues at airport check-ins, canceled and delayed flights.

"Large commercial airlines like ours face potential operational disruption". "It's part of our industry, whether it's weather phenomena, air traffic control restrictions and other events that may occur in the airspace or at airports". The new technology "helps us proactively identify potential operational pain points and minimize their impact through improved flight schedule planning", said the airline's Vicepresident of Network Planning, John Kirby.

The new technology, called Amadeus SkySym and based on artificial intelligence, will allow flight scheduling to be simulated. The data obtained on load factors, airport operations and timetables will then be used to optimize the performance of the existing connection planning software system, making the passenger air transport network more efficient.
