Private aviation company boosts fleet efficiency and revenue with modern data warehouse 

This client needed clearer data on the location of its planes to ensure passenger demand could be met more cost-efficiently. Pythian built them a modern data warehouse. 


To better serve its clientele of celebrities, professional athletes, and politicians, this private aviation company offered bookings with as little as 24 hours’ notice. Passengers were delighted by the flexibility, but the improved service revealed expensive shortcomings in the company’s fleet management strategy. Simply put, the airline did not have enough information to deploy its planes efficiently. In some cases, the company had to rent outside aircrafts to meet its contractual obligations. At other times, several planes were dispatched to one city when one plane could have been enough. 

The client needed data-manage infrastructure built from scratch to get clearer data on the location of its planes and ensure passenger demand could be met more cost-efficiently. As their trusted partner, Pythian modernized their data warehouse.
