Aviation: Demand Signal detection and fleet scheduling using AI

Machine learning is being applied in a variety of applications and at scale. One of the problems we tackled was private jet aviation.

The problem statement is slightly different from a regular taxi renting service, although certain principles do apply.

The primary objective is to crack the dynamic demand, predict ahead of the future and also manage the fleet movement by balancing the density across the zones.

It has had interesting complex scenarios like decoding the feasibility of travel zones and predicting the impact of new bookings on fleet schedule. Adjusting operations with dynamic demand is an on-going process and our attempt is only to keep refining and re-defining our solution.


Outline/Structure of the Case Study

  • Introduction
  • Understanding on-demand private jet
