Alaska Airlines delivers 17 million passengers per year to more than 60 cities in 3 countries, including flying coast to coast in the continental United States and to Hawaii.
Alaska Airlines has, in its more than 8 decades in the air, distinguished itself from its competitors through a commitment to pursuing and innovating the latest technologies, all in service of its longstanding and principal goal: providing customers an exceptional travel experience. The Alaska Airlines fleet comprises the most state-of-the art Boeing aircraft; Alaska led the way in offering online ticketing, check-in, and boarding pass printout; in the past decade, Alaska has kept up with the technologically changing times by embracing Social Media, mobile apps, Google Wallet, and equipping its pilots with iPads instead of paperwork.
In this continuing spirit of innovation, Alaska leveraged Aurora, Stottler Henke’s AI-Based Intelligent Planning and Scheduling software, to create a customized version specifically for pilot training scheduling. This is helping Alaska Airlines to efficiently use its training facilities as its fleet and staffing needs grow.
