The airline’s costs would be reduced by optimizing the utilization of the cargo/mail quota of passenger flights and increasing the accuracy of predicting load capacities.
The system core has been developed and trained in such a way as to ensure that not only static historical data and the load of a flight with cargo are taken into account, but also a schedule in which flights can be shifted to an earlier or later time by several hours and days.
The system reliably responds to the dynamic factors taken into account and automatically adjusts indicators. It can also handle newly added flights for which no historical data are available for training.
The implementation of Cargo Air, an automated system for predicting the cargo capacity of passenger flights at Aeroflot, provided an increase in the accuracy of the predictions for aircraft loading for 6 months by 20% and that for available cargo quota by 90%, – says Kirill Bogdanov, Deputy Director General for Information Technology, Aeroflot PJSC. – This allowed us to significantly optimize the total commercial load of flights over the entire Group.
