Interjet, a highly successful Mexican operator with nearly 300 daily flights, has decided to implement the Boeing Alertness Model (BAM) in support of their crew planning processes that uses Jeppesen Crew Pairing and Rostering optimizers.
"At Interjet we value very much KPI-driven planning where we use optimizers addressing the bigger picture in terms of crew efficiency, roster quality and fatigue risk", says Jose Luis Ayala, Human Factors Manager at Interjet. "BAM will provide us with an ability to control and reduce fatigue risk up-front, while preserving other desirable properties of the end product", he continues.
Fernando Leiva, Sales Director, adds, "We are delighted to see Interjet join other Jeppesen customers addressing risk pro-actively on a larger scale, and not only by adjusting a few flights at the end of the process which has marginal impact on risk. We look forward to serve Interjet for many years to come."
The Boeing Alertness Model is able to interact and guide crew planning optimizers in real-time, enabling the reduction of risk while sequencing flights for the crew. BAM, a validated proxy for human physiology, thus becomes part of the application itself, providing a more granular safety net than just rules alone. Please find more information about BAM here.
