Real-Time Route Profitability (RTRP) and Network Planning solution

Airlines operate in a complex environment characterized by:

  • Flights with different types of aircraft
  • Diverse geographies and distribution channels
  • Revenue streams in multiple currencies

In this challenging environment, a legacy airline finds it difficult to ascertain the actual revenues and operating costs for each flight. In addition, senior management may not have access to a single version of truth due to multiple data points. Decision makers can monitor route performance metrics such as cost, revenue performance, load factor and cash operating margin, but the data may be available only after two or three months. The lack of real-time route profitability information prevents airlines from taking strategic decisions to manage assets and improve profitability.

Infosys Real-Time Route Profitability and Network Planning solution is a strategic decision-making tool that enables CXOs to access timely and accurate route performance information. We offer the solution to three segments of the airline industry:

  • Replacement system for airlines with a legacy solution
  • Airlines implementing Oracle E-Business Suite Financials
  • Pluggable solution for airlines with Oracle BI tools
