SWISS has developed an air operations planning and management platform based on Google Cloud. The solution will support the decisions of the SWISS teams based at Zurich airport and responsible for the company’s flight operations worldwide.
The system collects data such as passenger routes, individual aircraft assignments and performance, crew composition and aircraft maintenance. This information is used to plan and optimize flights (particularly in terms of CO2 emissions), but also to manage and predict passenger connection times. In the event of disruptions, the platform offers alternative scenarios so that the passengers concerned reach their destination as soon as possible.
“Our partnership with Google Cloud plays a decisive role in the stability of flight schedules. The platform allows us to further reduce our CO₂ emissions through better use of our aircraft,” explains Dieter Vranckx, CEO of SWISS.
