The objective of this project was to bring more efficiency to logistics, improving time of Aircraft-on-Ground (AOG) recovery and developing possible saving for airlines operations. There proposed goal was to develop a system that would allow airlines to easily visualize an available space at the aircraft cargo bay on a desired flight and book its company materials (COMAT) on it, still respecting all appropriate regulation and the final availability of space.
This project was inspired by an existing system called MyIDTravel that allows jointed airline’s personnel to buy available tickets with low fares. The objective was to develop something similar for COMAT. The personnel responsible for logistics at jointed airlines would be able to check available cargo bay spaces on the desired flights and book COMAT transportation paying regular prices but having priority over regular cargo. This would enhance the utilization of empty space and optimize the transportation of required material to restore or maintain the airlines operation.
