Reduce Delays and Prevent Cancellations

Having unfilled shifts and IROPs leads to delayed or cancelled flights, accruing massive costs and damaging an airline’s reputation. Ascend™ flight crew shift scheduling software lets you quickly initiate an automated callout to fill those gaps with the right available pilots and flight attendants, eliminating 1,600 administrative and 30 supervisor hours each. This allows operations to stay reliable and keeps your customers happy.

Confirm and Assign Flight Crews in Seconds

The airline crew management software simplifies the process of equitably sourcing qualified and available pilots and crew members in seconds. It eliminates manual phone calls to flight crews, leveraging your existing specific business rules for eligibility and confirmation times. Flight crews can review, organize, and accept flights via the Ascend Mobile App, without ever having to speak to a scheduler.
