Enabling agile airline partnerships in air cargo through a single, network-wide view


Airline partnerships in air cargo allow carriers to increase their network coverage and capacity utilization. Different partnership models exist with varying levels of commitment, from fixed capacity allocations under interline contracts to joint capacity selling under joint venture agreements.
