Porter Airlines Crew Optimization 2010 and 2011

The Challenge

Porter Airlines had invested in crew optimization solutions but the expected productivity improvement and cost reduction were yet to be realized.

Our Role

  • Diagnostic assessment of current crew management processes
  • Benchmark pilot and cabin crew utilization
  • Develop manpower planning models for cockpit and cabin crew 2011 plans
  • Identify opportunities for crew productivity improvement including reduction of split pairings, establishment of new crew bases and improved optimization practices
  • Execute crew pairing runs


Project recommendations were implemented and benefits delivered.
