Virgin Australia becomes the first airline to adopt Amadeus Altéa Departure Control – Flight Management as a standalone solution. It is the first time that the solution will be delivered as a standalone component to an airline that is not using the Amadeus Altéa Suite. As a member of the Altéa family, Virgin Australia will be able to automate aircraft load control and optimize flight departures.
The doors are now open to airlines who are looking for a best-in-class weight and balance solution without wanting to go through a full migration to a new passenger service system.
Altéa Departure Control – Flight Management solution improves the productivity of load controllers and enables airlines to centralize load control operations. This means load controllers can safely handle many flights simultaneously through a single, intuitive, graphical interface, without having to switch between different systems.
The solution also helps airlines analyze passenger and cargo load more precisely, and optimizes aircraft load distribution. This enables airlines to more accurately forecast the fuel needed for every flight departure. Currently, the solution is used by more than 90 airlines and ground handlers around the world.
