Airline will use Lido/Flight 4D, NetLine/Ops ++ and Revenue Integrity

Airline will use Lido/Flight 4D, NetLine/Ops ++ and Revenue Integrity

Lufthansa Systems today announced that Air Malta will be optimizing its processes using IT solutions from Lufthansa Systems, thus saving the airline time and money. It will soon start planning flights with Lido/Flight 4D, monitoring flight operations with NetLine/Ops ++ and managing its flight firming with Revenue Integrity.

“We are in a growth phase and are headed towards a profitable future. We’ve set ourselves very ambitious goals. The IT solutions from Lufthansa Systems will help us achieve them. With these solutions, we can further optimize our route planning, improve our flight operations management and handle reservations more quickly. This will save us time and money,” said Alan Talbot CIO at Air Malta.

The Lido/Flight 4D flight planning solution calculates the most suitable route for each Air Malta flight based on all relevant flight data, such as weather conditions and the current airspace situation, including any restrictions. The solution enables airlines to optimize their flying time, costs and fuel consumption when planning routes. NetLine/Ops ++ monitors current flight operations. Air Malta can use this solution to avoid disruptions and significantly lower the costs incurred by delays. With its management-by-exception approach, NetLine/Ops ++ eliminates diversions caused by minor problems. The operations controller can focus on critical flights which demand a fast reaction. Revenue Integrity will support Air Malta in its primary revenue management goal: maximizing earnings. The solution improves the quality of reservation data and optimizes inventory control and demand forecasts. This lowers the compensation payments incurred through overbooking and losses on account of seat spoilage. Experts estimate that airlines can increase their revenue by around one euro per segment booked and thus improve their financial result by an average of two to three percent.

“Air Malta was won over by the high quality of our products as well as the potential savings and flexibility offered by our solutions. For example, we connected Revenue Integrity to a third-party reservation system for Air Malta,” said Marco Cesa, Senior Vice President Regional Management EMEA at Lufthansa Systems.

Air Malta is the flag carrier of Malta, with headquarters in Luqa. It began operating in 1974 and has a fleet of ten aircraft. Air Malta serves destinations in Europe, North Africa and the eastern Mediterranean.

Lido/Flight 4D, Lido/Navigation and Lido/Performance: New features, agile develop­ment and enhancement, and in-depth exchange at

Lido/Flight 4D, Lido/Navigation and Lido/Performance: New features, agile develop­ment and enhancement, and in-depth exchange at customer conference in Madrid.

Lufthansa Systems today announced that it will be hosting its first ever joint user conference for customers of Lido/Flight 4D and Lido/Navigation this year. The Lido User Conference will take place this week from June 5 to 7 in Madrid. Using the tagline #takeoffwithlido, the airline IT experts from Lufthansa Systems will present innovations from their successful Lido product lines for flight planning and navigation.

“Digitalization is affecting the entire aviation industry. Airlines are increasingly investing in connectivity solutions and networked systems both on the flight deck and on the ground. This enables carriers to boost the efficiency of flight operations since data such as weather, airspace and traffic control information will be updated in real time. As a result, airline requirements for flight planning and navigation systems are changing. Everything is becoming more dynamic and data-driven,” said Dr. Bernd Jurisch, Head of Flight & Navigation Products & Solutions at Lufthansa Systems. “This is why we have merged the previously independent Lido product lines. We have taken this decision to match our solutions perfectly to the collaboration between dispatchers and pilots. This ensures that flight operations overall become more efficient, thus enabling substantial savings to be generated. The approach pursued by Lido in this context is called ‘total mission optimization’ and expressly includes the Lido/Performance products.”

The Lido/Flight flight planning solution with its new generation Lido/Flight 4D has been marketed successfully for more than 20 years. Around 120 airlines are using the systems. Since 2015, Lufthansa Systems has worked intensively on developing Lido/Flight into the new Lido/Flight 4D generation to further increase the level of automation in flight planning and enable airlines to achieve even larger savings by benefiting from a new optimizer generation.

The Lido/Navigation success story is over 15 years old, with more than 100 airlines using the solution. In addition, Lufthansa Systems launched the Maps program to integrate various airport, takeoff/landing and enroute navigation maps. The goal is to produce a dynamic map solution. As the innovative Lido/Flight 4D, Lido/Navigation and Lido/Performance solutions continue to converge, Lufthansa Systems is taking its Lido product lines to the next level and creating new added value for airlines. Lido enables a seamless digital process for flight operations – from planning a flight to the aircraft’s parking position at the destination airport.

In addition to explaining the new strategy, this conference will offer breakout sessions on special topics, customer presentations on current projects and the opportunity for in-depth discussion. This will benefit around 270 product experts and customer representatives from about 70 airlines and partners attending the event.

Lufthansa Systems’ product optimizes management of codeshare flights

Lufthansa Systems’ product optimizes management of codeshare flights

Lufthansa Systems today announced that Egypt Air will continue to use its SchedConnect codeshare management solution for the next five years. The airline recently renewed its contract with the aviation IT provider. SchedConnect helps airlines optimize the management of codeshare flights, reduce costs and increase revenues. Egypt Air has been using the solution since 2008.

“Our experience with SchedConnect has been excellent. As a member of the Star Alliance, we benefit from synchronized flight schedules inside and outside the airline alliance, for example,” said the Manager of the Schedule Management Department at Egypt Air. “Other plus points include the high-quality service from Lufthansa Systems and the many useful features. Thanks to the high degree of automation, we have saved a significant amount of time and money in our daily codeshare management tasks since introducing SchedConnect.”

SchedConnect is currently the most technologically advanced system of its kind. The solution ensures a high degree of automation by processing schedule data from 25 customers and their codeshare partners to calculate the optimal codeshare connections for the customers’ current schedules on a daily basis. If a minimum connecting time is violated due to a schedule change or if a partner flight is canceled, SchedConnect assigns the marketing flight number to another suitable connecting flight operated by the partner. Changes are sent through the reservation systems to travel agents and customers as well as to the operations and passenger-related systems of the airlines involved. In addition to SchedConnect, Egypt Air is also using the Lido/Flight 4D flight planning solution, the NetLine/Plan network planning solution and the Sirax AirFinance Platform for revenue accounting.

“Lufthansa Systems and Egypt Air are linked by a long-standing partnership. We have worked together since 2006 and look forward to our future cooperation. The renewed contract is a sign of the quality of our products,” said Marco Cesa, Senior Vice President Regional Management EMEA at Lufthansa Systems.

Egypt Air is the national carrier of Egypt, with headquarters in Cairo. It was founded in May 1932 as the seventh airline in the world. Since starting flight operations 86 years ago, the airline has experienced significant growth. Egypt Air now serves more than 75 destinations in numerous countries, with its biggest market in Europe and the Middle East. The airline operates scheduled passenger flights as well as cargo flights on a variety of international, regional and domestic routes. Egypt Air joined the Star Alliance in 2008.

Almost 500 airline experts are meeting this week at one of the largest international airline IT user conferences.

Almost 500 airline experts are meeting this week at one of the largest international airline IT user conferences. Lufthansa Systems will showcase the latest innovations in the digital world of aviation.

How do airlines plan their networks in the age of digitalization? What opportunities do artificial intelligence and machine learning offer for managing flight operations? And how will crews communicate with each other in the future? Lufthansa Systems will discuss these and other questions relating to the digital transformation of the aviation industry with its airline customers this week. The Airline Forum starts today at the Lufthansa Training & Conference Center in Seeheim under the slogan of “Transformation & YOU.” Almost 500 participants, among them representatives of around 80 airlines worldwide, will learn about the latest developments in the portfolio of the airline IT specialist. Lufthansa Systems advises and supports airlines in their digital transformation. The aviation IT experts show what sustainable airline processes can look like and provide hands-on support to customers in implementing their projects.

“The fourth industrial revolution – also known as Industry 4.0 – started long ago. An era of data communication, constant connectivity and a digital workforce. These new technologies massively influence an airline’s processes,” said Olivier Krueger, CEO of Lufthansa Systems.

The keynote on the topic of “Transforming business through data-driven personalization” will be held by Dr. Andreas Ribbrock, Principal Data Scientist at the Lufthansa Systems subsidiary zeroG, and Marcel Kling, head of the SMILE personalization program in the Lufthansa Group. Other customers will also have the opportunity to speak and report on successful projects, including Avianca Holdings and Pegasus Airlines. The next two and a half days will be devoted to some 80 lectures and workshops as well as personal conversations with product experts and other airlines. Attendees can put together their own individual program from a comprehensive range of topics.

The focus is on new product developments and innovations in the NetLine product family, which will be presented by experts from Lufthansa Systems and its industry partners. These include current research findings from the field of robust flight planning and the new Lufthansa Systems Analytical Platform. Consulting services relating to the new GDPR, among other things, are also on the agenda.

“At the Airline Forum, we want to show our customers how we are transforming our products and solutions using new technologies. And we want to talk about the challenges facing airlines in their digital transformation. We look forward to a lively conversation,” said Stefan Auerbach, CEO of Lufthansa Systems.

There will be ample opportunity for discussion particularly in the Garden of Transformation. This is where Airline Forum participants can try out the product innovations for themselves with live demos and talk to experts right after the sessions. Their feedback is critical to the further optimization of products.
