With its pow­er­ful com­bi­na­tion of fea­tures, includ­ing drag-and-drop visu­al dis­play, Sched­ule­Plan­ner lets you mon­i­tor and man­age your sched­ule, as well as plan and man­age slot sub­mis­sions for next season’s sched­ule includ­ing the slot hand-back process.

Choose to cre­ate flights in either text or visu­al dis­play mode using com­mer­cial flight num­bers, or opt to link a com­mer­cial flight num­ber with an air traf­fic con­trol flight num­ber if you pre­fer.

SchedulePlanner’s visu­al dis­play mode includes an opti­miser to help you eas­i­ly allo­cate flight sec­tors to air­craft. By auto­mat­i­cal­ly tak­ing into account air­craft on the ground and air­port turn­around times, Sched­ule­Plan­ner lets you allo­cate your air­craft as time-effi­cient­ly as pos­si­ble to max­imise block times in order to gain the great­est val­ue from your fleet.

Ful­ly-inte­grat­ed slot man­age­ment means you can gen­er­ate and sub­mit IATA-com­pli­ant indi­vid­ual and batch SCR mes­sages to air­port coor­di­na­tors in order to obtain slot per­mis­sions. Syn­chro­ni­sa­tion of the flight pro­gramme with the slot sta­tus of each flight means you can eas­i­ly iden­ti­fy where to send new or improved slot requests. Sched­ule­Plan­ner will also import an SIR mes­sage so that you can check your sched­ule against your air­port slot allo­ca­tion, record your slot snap­shot and com­mence the hand back process pri­or to the slot use it or lose it sta­tus.

Flight times can be dis­played in both UTC and local time, and world­wide ISO time zones are updat­ed auto­mat­i­cal­ly by IATA sea­sons.

Sched­ule­Plan­ner enables you to gen­er­ate a range of reports includ­ing iden­ti­fi­ca­tion of your air­craft block and flight hours, your airline’s pro­gramme, timetable, hub and sched­ule dis­plays.
