This book offers a comprehensive overview of the essence and nature of airline operations in terms of an operational and regulatory framework, the myriad of planning activities leading up to the current day, and the nature of intense activity that typifies both normal and disruptive airline operations. The text is highly structured, offering four sections. The first section, Planning for Product and Customers, outlines the importance of the regulatory framework underpinning airline operations, and then explores the means by which airlines structure themselves, their network, business model, and management and marketing strategies in order to attract and retain their customer base. The second section, Planning for Operations, draws attention to the operational environment, explaining the framework of the air traffic system, and the complex interrelated planning processes instigated by operational departments within airlines such as Scheduling, Crewing, Maintenance, Operations Control and Airport Resources leading up to the operating day(s). The third section presents a highly detailed breakdown of the activities that occur, both landside and airside, on the actual operating day, taking into account passenger processing, aircraft preparation and the complexities of operating aircraft. The fourth section provides an eye-opener into events that, despite the lengthy and meticulous planning stages, typically go wrong on the operating day and then the means by which airlines try to mitigate these problems. Finally a glimpse is provided of future systems, processes and technologies likely to be significant in airline operations. This book uniquely encapsulates the structure, extensive range of key topics and considerable detail pertaining to airline operations, offering valuable knowledge to industry and academia alike, by serving to fill a considerable gap in the literature and providing readers with a well-informed and interesting dialogue on these critical functions that occur every day within airlines.
