The objective of an operational analysis is to optimize fleet composition, flight itineraries and frequencies by developing one or more operational plans.

To achieve this objective an analyst must accurately simulate an airline's operation, taking into consideration all operational requirements. The fundamental methodology employed by the Analyst is the allocation of passengers. Origin-destination passengers are allocated to flights on the basis of some "preference factors" related to the aircraft, to passengers and to the traffic. Flights can be added, deleted or re-routed and the impact on each flight and on the total system may be evaluated.

Albatros has faced and solved such a problem in a way we are pleased to show to you in the following page.
