COLLEGE SPORTS CASE STUDY

THE CHALLENGE

A midwest-based university made an exciting deal to move into a larger athletic conference resulting in its team traveling greater distances to unfamiliar cities and airports. The athletic department had limited time to analyze the viable alternatives and identify options that offered the most reliable, yet cost-effective solution to set up a comprehensive travel schedule.

THE SOLUTION

PJS consulted with the university and provided four viable options for each sport’s specific needs:

  • Using a 30-seat regional aircraft for all flights
  • Using a 50-seat regional aircraft for all flights
  • Using a 65-seat business class configured aircraft for all flights
  • Using a blend of 30-seat, 50-seat, and 65-seat aircraft on a per trip and per team basis

THE RESULT

The university chose option four because it offered all teams the ability to adjust based on each specific travel event. By having a variety of aircraft at their disposal, the university was able to utilize the 30-seat aircraft for shorter distances (for smaller teams like volleyball) or travel using shorter runways. The 50-seat aircraft made sense for a majority of basketball-related travel, and the 65-seat aircraft for when donors and boosters travel with the team.

In addition to the cost savings, teams saved time due to less ground travel to and from airports, fewer overnights in hotels, and less flight time by flying direct. Also, the university gained an academic advantage, as students used time on the charter flights as study hall and missed fewer classes.
