Optimised flight planning
Australian airline Qantas faces a unique challenge: compared to most of its competitors, its home base is geographically remote from many major destinations. The company is taking this challenge and turning it into an opportunity, using it as motivation to build the most advanced flight planning system in the world.
Mike Riegler, Manager Flight Operations System Support at Qantas, explains: “Existing solutions are designed for airlines that don’t have to fly as far as we do. With ambitions to offer our customers new nonstop routes even further away from Australia, we set out to design our own, better flight planning system.”
Qantas teamed up with Frequentis, Smart4Aviation and the University of Sydney to create a groundbreaking platform that enables unprecedented efficiency and fuel savings.
