Ensuring flights are available during these increased periods will create revenue gains. If forecasting proves to be false, Coastline will continue to operate the route or remove the route accordingly. This will ensure Coastline Airlines is maximizing their possibilities for increased revenue. Fleet Structure Costs
COASTLINE AIRLINES3Coastline Airlines operates with a mixed fleet of aircraft, consisting of 25 CRJ200’s and 15 CRJ700’s. Forecasting maintenance and upkeep costs allow Coastline to allocated funds to ensure that our aircraft are maintained appropriately. Budgeting this money early will prevent situations where aircraft are not usable for extended periods of time, reducing our capabilities. When deciding to increase our fleet size, we will explore if the airline can handle the expansion before any decision is made. Other factors such as competition, aircraft demand, and revenue will also be considered to ensure the company can support the purchase.Staffing CostsStaffing Coastline Airlines is a difficult task, considering we pride ourselves on customer service, but we also must continue to increase revenue. We must find a balance between the two,maintaining customer service as a priority. Seasonally, specifically summertime, increased flights force Coastline to increase staffing. Although some jobs can be hired seasonally, increased fleet size and route expansion could create the need for more permanent jobs.
