In December of last year, Robert Milton visited our research group at Georgia Tech. As the former CEO of Air Canada, he arranged for us to travel to Montreal and spend a day at Air Canada’s headquarters.
During our recent visit, we met with the Vice President of Network Planning and the Vice President of Revenue Management. In the early part of the day our advisor Dr. Garrow presented to Air Canada employees the research we are doing at Georgia Tech. We spent the rest of they day discussing with staff members how Air Canada is making decisions in the areas of route planning, pricing, and resource allocation, gaining an understanding of how the airline functions.
