Finnair implements Carmen Pairing for cabin crew

Finnair successfully implemented the Carmen Pairing system for cabin crew of its MD80 and Airbus fleets. The main objective of the project was to generate sufficient savings in a very short period of time (three weeks) to finance the roll-out of the remaining fleets.

The two-way interface created by Type 2 Solutions for cabin rostering seamlessly integrated the machine-generated pairings into the existing framework, helping to make this project a solid basis for the planned extension.

The “Crescendo” project, as it was named, was successfully completed on October 22, 2003.

The project was dubbed “Parrot” and lasted for almost 6 months; it was put into production on June 17, 2004.
