Southwest implements Seabury's APAS for flight profitability analysis

21st May 2009 - 01:01 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Southwest Airlines has implemented Seabury’s Airline Performance Analysis System (APAS), a decision-support tool that measures the operational and financial performance of individual flights.

The Seabury offering was selected after a competitive RFP and due diligence process by Southwest and implemented in 10 weeks from kickoff to production.

Southwest’s network and strategic analysis department will use APAS to generate flight-by-date profitability reports based on a new and more-sophisticated allocation model developed during the implementation. This will enable the airline to perform year-over-year and trend analysis using a consistent methodology. APAS also will allow Southwest to analyse proposed schedules and various “what-if” scenarios.

“After reviewing our alternatives, our team felt that APAS offered the best combination of functionality, technical architecture and value,” said Tammy Romo, vice-president, financial planning. “We wanted to implement the product and generate results very quickly, and through the combined efforts of the business users, Southwest IT and Seabury, we were able to accomplish our goals. We greatly appreciated the Seabury team’s willingness to take the actions necessary to meet our deadlines.”

“We are proud to add Southwest as a customer,” said Bijoy Mechery, managing director, Seabury Solutions. “It was a pleasure to work with such a dedicated and knowledgeable team, both on the business and technical side, and we look forward to their input as we continue to invest in the application to ensure it remains the industry-leading solution.”
