Eradicating IROPS

Travel disruptions – aka ‘irregular operations’ – are costly. But data and mobile technology can ease the pain
This past fall and winter have been seasons of discontent for business travelers and airlines alike. First came a trio of horrendous hurricanes. Then a series of winter storms packing powerful winds and feet of snow slammed into the East Coast.

Last year’s season saw Texas, the Florida Keys and Puerto Rico pummeled by – in order of appearance – Hurricanes Harvey, Irma and Maria, resulting in US airlines axing 33,000 domestic flights. The very worst day schedule-wise was Sunday, Sept. 10, 2017, when according to the airline industry trade group Airlines for America (A4A), carriers cancelled 4,567 flights.

As this story goes to press they’re still calculating the costs even while they brace for more of winter’s wrath in the Boston-Washington travel corridor.
