How do you effectively transition your pilots to the new Dreamliner at the lowest cost?

New fleet such as the Dreamliner and the A350 are creating many challenges for airlines, one of them being pilot transitioning. Optimizing pilot transition plans is essential to control cost and ensure operational strength. The financial impact of inefficient planning and the lack of visibility in this area can end up having a huge impact on operations and pilots job satisfaction — especially in the face of a global pilot shortage.

KLM has successfully addressed pilot transitioning while maintaining operational strength at optimal cost. Utilizing our leading edge technology, they are cost effectively optimizing over 700 pilot transitions, 8,000 holiday slots and 11,000 simulator slots annually.

In this exclusive webinar, Dassault Systèmes - Quintiq aviation specialists Pete Nelson and Lee Hochberg will detail how airlines are able to control costs and slash the time on transitioning.

You'll learn more about:

  • The factors that could make your pilot transitioning more effective and less costly
  • The optimized way to approach long-term headcount and pilot reserve requirements
  • How our technology allows planners to see the future effects of decisions
