Jeppesen Crew Rostering
Increase airline roster efficiency and quality while shortening your roster construction process.

To effectively manage the rostering process for pilots and cabin crew, it means more than simply following a long checklist of rules. It is an act of trading multiple factors to find the perfect balance–a balance that is constantly shifting.

With our Crew Rostering solution, you can create crew rosters that control the necessary aspects of a high quality roster; quality from both the crew and the company perspective. Built to handle the world's most complex rostering tasks, it can also help you strike the right balance between several soft factors, such as operational constraints including:

  • Reserve coverage and operational buffers
  • Service aspects like language requirements
  • Cabin service levels
  • Human factors such as fatigue
  • Crew-friendliness and individual crew preferences

The speed of our roster optimizer and the amount of constraints it can handle translates into a faster roster construction process, which in turn extends the window of opportunity for your network department to capture additional revenue and easily find the best balance during each planning period.

Crew Rostering supports several bid models included weighted fair share and strict seniority.
