Abstract

Human resource is more and more important nowadays among the resources of a company, because output and level of services can be increased, specific cost can be reduced, and the efficiency can be better with a relative little investment in human resources. It is an important issue also according to air transport safety, since 60\% of flight accidents are because of crew errors. Human resource management includes every exercise concerning the personnel; the most important issues are procurement of suitable staff, and optimal allocation among the works. Assignment of the crew must meet several requirements. The initial optimal allocation may change by carrying out the schedule, because flights are often not performed as planned. If this happens, crew must be also re-allocated, causing as little interruption as possible.
