Optym Announces Deployment of SkySYM at easyJet

Accurately planning flight schedules in a complex route network is a challenging endeavor. When airlines succeed in optimizing their flight schedules, they can reduce costs, improve customer experience by reducing flight delays and can potentially unlock millions of dollars in incremental revenue.

Optym, in partnership with Amadeus, is excited to announce that easyJet has chosen the advanced flight network simulation solution Amadeus SkySYM by Optym to continue to improve the reliability of its flight schedules and increase on-time performance. easyJet is a leading airline in Europe, carrying over 83 million passengers annually with 308 aircraft on more than 1000 routes to 154 airports across 33 countries.

“Every airline wants to build optimal flight schedules that will both maximize profits and be more reliable. Our results show that the system predicts on-time performance (OTP) indicators with greater than 95% accuracy and improves OTP by up to 4%,”

says Renzo Vaccari, Senior Vice President of Airline Solutions at Optym.

SkySYM is the only solution on the market that can simulate airline schedules in the planning stage. SkySYM simulates planned schedules under real-world conditions by modeling factors such as aircraft and passenger flows, maintenance activities, air traffic control events, weather patterns and crew and baggage delays. It allows airlines to adapt quickly and efficiently to changing circumstances.

Andrew Salt, Network Optimization Manager at easyJet, commented,

“SkySYM is a well-developed, mature product that meets the needs of the network and schedule planning team at easyJet, and we are delighted to develop our partnership with Optym and Amadeus with this product. We are confident that it will drive significant value to our business, whilst maintaining and enhancing the quality of our schedules for our customers.”
