2021 Scheduling and Strategic Planning (SSP) Meeting

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, AGIFORS Council decided to do all study group meetings ONLINE this year.

The SSP Study Group meeting will be held on May 17, 18, 19, 2021.

On each day, we will meet for 3 hours, between 14:00 and 17:00 UTC (tentative; subject to minor changes).

We hope this would allow most of our community to be able to join at a reasonable time of the day.


In these challenging times,  we decided to greatly reduce the registration fees for the online meeting. We do this because we feel now more than ever that we need to work together and support one another, to address the challenges we face.

Registration fees:

  • Academic/Airline
    • AGIFORS members: FREE 
    • Non-members: USD 30 
  • Industry/Government/Vendors
    • AGIFORS members: USD 30
    • Non-members: USD 60

Register here for the SSP 2021 Meeting.

All times are UTC.

We will have technical presentations, airline presentations, and a panel discussion with prominent figures in airline scheduling and planning.  We will publish the detailed agenda soon. Here are technical presentation abstracts.

Please note that due to the special circumstances this year and highly reduced registration fees for vendor, there will be no vendor presentations. Only our sponsors will have a 20-minute presentation each.


Sponsors will get a 20-minute sponsor presentation within the main program (first come, first served) and their logo will be posted on this website. If you would like to sign up as a sponsor, please contact ssp@agifors.org or complete the online sponsorship form.

For any questions, please contact ssp@agifors.org

It has been the policy of AGIFORS for all meetings to have the registration fee for Airline staff and Academics as low as possible. Academicians are likely to introduce new approaches and thinking into our field, and having a strong airline presence brings great value to both the vendors and the airlines. This would only be possible because of our sponsors - thank you!

Gold (USD 500)
