Optimising airline operations with PDC and OCS



The aviation industry is undergoing rapid changes, driven by fluctuating markets and technological advancements. This evolution has made the traditional approach of fixed flight schedules obsolete. Nowadays, airlines are required to continuously evaluate and optimise their routes to maximise revenue and cater to profitable passenger segments. As a result, airlines, are turning to sophisticated tools like the Online Coordination System (OCS), which is supported by local coordinators all around the world to manage these demands efficiently.



Shift in airline operations

Historically, airline schedules were relatively static, with few changes to flights or destinations. However, in today’s dynamic market, airlines must adapt quickly to changing conditions, making the need for real-time route development and scheduling flexibility more critical than ever. This shift demands rapid decision-making capabilities, which are supported by advanced software solutions.

The role of OCS in slot coordination

OCS plays a crucial role in this new dynamic environment by providing real-time access to airport slot availability. Supported by local coordinators worldwide, the system offers airlines the ability to tap into coordinators’ databases for airports globally, allowing them to respond promptly to emerging opportunities and challenges.

PDC, recognising the necessity for swift access to such critical information, has integrated the OCS with their FlightTime software. This integration not only simplifies the process of slot coordination but also empowers airlines to manage their slots both strategically and tactically. Through the OCS Grid within FlightTime, airlines can instantly view and adjust to slot availabilities at airports around the world.

Enhancing airline efficiency with PDC FlightTime and OCS

The collaboration between FlightTime and OCS provides a significant advantage for schedule planners, offering instant visibility into slot availabilities and enabling quick adjustments. This integration is pivotal for airlines with home bases and hubs registered in the OCS, facilitating smoother and more efficient rescheduling processes.

As the aviation landscape continues to evolve, the use of advanced technologies like OCS and strategic partnerships will become increasingly important. Airlines that leverage these tools will find themselves better equipped to navigate the complexities of modern air travel and maintain a competitive advantage.
