Considering the complexity of cost management in Airlines PCM follows an integrated multi-dimensional approach to ensure measurable success. PCM approach is systematic so that Airlines who are not so familiar with these methodologies are taken through a step-by-step adoption to effectively institutionalize the methodologies, controls and tools. Airlines who might have already found success in adopting some of the above methodologies and tools are encouraged to evaluate their PCM maturity to ensure that they are in line with industry best practices.Here are some common components and practices involved in PCM by airlines:

Cost Reduction Initiatives: Airlines meticulously analyze their operations to pinpoint areas where costs can be trimmed without compromising safety or quality of service. This encompasses measures such as streamlining operational processes, renegotiating contracts with suppliers to achieve more favorable terms, enhancing fuel efficiency through optimized flight routes  adopting cost-saving technologies.
