How are you Managing COVID IROPS?
Given the current situation, we want to make it clear, we are here for our customers. With passengers not flying and flights being cancelled or delayed, IROPS is a bigger part of the current airline climate than normal operations. ELP Aviation was there for you before this chaos, is here for you now and will be here for you when this is all over.
ELP can’t stop the chaos, but as aviation experts, we have experience in irregular operations. We have some tips that we found helpful when dealing with unexpected situations like those you face today.
Minimize Non-Critical Communication
One way to achieve this is an automated broadcast system and chat mechanism that can contact groups of affected people through a mobile app, text, email, and/or robot call.
As we are all home-bound and working in multiple locations, a chat mechanism brings us virtually in the same room. This improves processes and achieves your goals at a quicker pace, lowering labor costs. You need more than a notification tool; you need an internal communication system as well.
With an automated notifications system, crews will know what they need to know within minutes of it entering your scheduling systems. This will relieve your staff from making multiple attempts to reach crew members.
Staff is in short supply, the only thing you can do now is find a way to deal with the circumstances you have the best way possible. ELP’s CrewPortal does all the tasks mentioned and much more.
Communicate what’s important to those who need the information without crippling the short staff you have.
Since ELP Aviation is in this with our customers, we are offering our base CrewPortal ELP Notify tool and many other IROPS tools at no cost for 30 days to help in any way we can.
