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.
