Introduction to Airline Network Planning

REGISTRATIONS HAVE CLOSED. OUR VERY FIRST BATCH IS FULL. If you are a pilot and want to attend this, do reach out via the form below

I was surprised at the number of tweeples who were interested to know more about airline network planning. Few kind folks tagged me along with a few others as the interest levels increased. I decided to take it up to share my experience of Network Planning with a five-star full service carrier in India, followed by being part of the turnaround team of a low cost carrier and years later getting exposed to a major LCC in the region. 

I plan to cover the below topics as part of the session

  • Introduction to Network Planning and where does it fit in the overall scheme of things for the airline
  • Sub branches of Network Planning
  • Types of Networks
  • What comes first – fitting a plane to a route or selecting a route and looking for a plane?
  • How is a new station planned and how is a new route decided?
  • How aircraft rotations look like and which parameters to consider during planning?
  • Market feedback, operational feedback and corrections to network
  • Q&A

The session is scheduled for Saturday December 18, 2021, with tentative time being 1000hrs to 1200hrs (Subject to minor revision if this time is not suitable for the entire team which registers). The session will be online on Google Meets.
