Working Time Solutions specialises in workforce planning and management for air servicesWorking Time Solutions’ approach to workforce planning and management helps organisations operating in the Air Services and Transport sectors to design shift patterns and rosters that closely match seasonal peaks and troughs in demand.

Increasing passenger and cargo volumes are putting pressure on operators to deliver rapid growth whilst maintaining high levels of security, customer service and efficiency.

Air Services and Transport organisations naturally experience significant variability in demand across any given period.

It’s essential that shift patterns accurately match this demand profile to avoid underutilisation and provide the flex necessary to meet peaks.
