If integrating schedule data to Avinode:
Q: How do I block aircraft availability if I have a schedule integration with Avinode?
A: This requires adding an event in your scheduling software such as maintenance activity or passenger segment to block the aircraft availability. This activity will push over to Avinode shortly after.
Q: Do I have a way to block aircraft availability without having to add an event in my fleet management system?
A: Yes, you can use Avinode’s routing rules to override your schedule data. We recommend using the Minimum or Maximum days out rule which allows you to block your schedule for this period of time.
See routing rules:
Q: How do I block my aircraft availability if I am using Schedaero?
