Starting in August, Lufthansa Systems offers training programs with academic and practical training, called apprenticeship in Germany, to become an IT Specialist for System Integration or Application Development or an Information Technology Clerk (m/f/diverse).

The apprenticeship for the IT Specialist for System Integration focuses on IT topics such as operating systems and their areas of application, programming logic and methods, and physics in the field of electronics.

Lufthansa Systems is also looking for IT enthusiasts who want to become Information Technology Clerks to analyze problems and tasks that need to be solved within a company through the use of information and telecommunications systems. The apprenticeships start on 1 August 2019 at Lufthansa Systems in Raunheim and will each last three years.

Agile methods, flat hierarchies and flexible working hours characterize the working environment at Lufthansa Systems. The company´s headquarters in the Airport Garden in Raunheim, one of the Lufthansa Group´s most modern buildings, offers the ideal setting for implementing the modern work concept in an open atmosphere and for promoting communication and teamwork. A wide range of services for employees, internal innovation management and the benefits of the Lufthansa Group round off the package.

New design exhibition stand for the first time at AIX in Hamburg | Responsible marketing with sustainable materials and ecological advertising media

New design exhibition stand for the first time at AIX in Hamburg | Responsible marketing with sustainable materials and ecological advertising media

Lufthansa Systems employs IT and aviation experts who are passionate about their products and customers – real insiders. This is what the new image campaign of the airline IT specialist conveys: “We're into IT”. The new slogan is also an invitation to customers and partners to take a closer look. Wherever digitalization and aviation come together, Lufthansa Systems and its solutions are also involved.

This basic idea, which Lufthansa Systems published at the end of January at the same time as a new design, is also reflected in the new booth concept for trade shows. This stand will be used for the first time at the Aircraft Interiors Expo (AIX) in Hamburg. The key visual shows people who literally merge with the matter in the background. In an extraordinary way, digital, analogue and living components are combined at the stand of the airline IT specialist.

“Our concept is consciously very futuristic and modern. At first glance, it should convey the fact that we at Lufthansa Systems are flexible in all directions and can adapt to the requirements of the respective project. We are open to cooperation with partners and want to revolutionize the airline world together with them and our many customers,” says Ansgar Lübbehusen, Head of Marketing & Communications at Lufthansa Systems.

The award-winning BoardConnect platform will be presented with a new service for partners under the name BoardConnect Dock. (More on this in the press release of April 1.)

Likewise, a new range of advertising materials, which are always in high demand, was developed. Lufthansa Systems attached particular importance to sustainability in the newly selected articles. “The debate about plastic waste and sustainability does not stop at IT and marketing either. We are proud to be able to make a contribution to greater sustainability with our environmentally friendly gift articles,” adds Lübbehusen. Plastic ducks and articles that do not create any real added value are now a thing of the past. In contrast, Lufthansa Systems invites customers and partners to its stand for a cup of coffee in a portable and recyclable mug. Not only during AIX a useful utensil.

Lufthansa Systems today announced that it is presenting an expanded BoardConnect portfolio at this year’s Aircraft Interiors Expo (AIX) in Hamburg. The airline IT specialist is responding to changing demand in the market and the different needs of airlines and partners.

For its refinancing models, Lufthansa Systems is additionally working with providers such as WhileFly and repay.me. In terms of content providers, its partner network includes Touch, Lasker, IMM and PXCOM, and is supplemented on a technical level by IMD, optile, INADVIA, RIM and Lufthansa Technik.

BoardConnect
BoardConnect
is Lufthansa Systems’ complete solution for the digital passenger experience that continues to address airlines of all sizes with different business models. In addition to traditional IFE features such as moving maps, movies, music, games and destination information, customers can choose the content they want from a wide range of services available through Lufthansa Systems’ strong partner network. This content can also be provided simply and easily from the cloud if desired.

Visit Lufthansa Systems from April 2 to 4 at AIX at stand #4B11.

Almost 500 participants attend one of the largest international airline IT conferences | Around 90 airlines represented | Lufthansa Systems honors long-standing NetLine customers

Almost 500 participants attend one of the largest international airline IT conferences | Around 90 airlines represented | Lufthansa Systems honors long-standing NetLine customers

Strategic alliances and the comprehensive exchange of information across all borders are fundamentally important in the world of aviation. With the Aviation Campus, Lufthansa Systems aims to find the best solutions quickly and efficiently from a network of options – for any problem its customers might face. This is why the slogan of the Airline Forum that starts today in the Lufthansa Seeheim conference hotel is “Explore the Aviation Campus.” At this customer conference, Lufthansa Systems will present innovations and developments from its portfolio to almost 500 participants from around the world.

The airline IT specialist will focus on its NetLine products, which cover the entire process chain from network planning and flight scheduling to daily flight operations. Lufthansa Systems has many existing customers in this field who have long relied on NetLine solutions such as NetLine/Plan, NetLine/Sched, NetLine/Ops ++ and NetLine/Crew, including Cathay Pacific, Turkish Airlines and Air Canada.

“The low fluctuation and loyalty of our customers are a testament to their great satisfaction. We are delighted to see this kind of response, which also motivates us to keep optimizing our products. At events like the Airline Forum, our customers provide feedback that contributes to the continual development of our solutions. This is very much in the spirit of the Aviation Campus,” said Olivier Krüger, CEO of Lufthansa Systems.

The many innovations presented at the event demonstrate how forward-looking cooperation works within the NetLine family and the Aviation Campus. For example, experts will show how artificial intelligence can revolutionize turnaround management, improve processes in the Operations Control Center and reduce the risk of delays by taking delay forecasts into account. They will also discuss the ongoing migration of the solutions to the Lufthansa Systems Global Aviation Cloud.

The keynote on the topic of “Digital Disruption” will be given by Dr. Jens-Uwe Meyer, a leading German innovation and digitalization expert. Alan Talbot, CIO of Air Malta, will talk about the digital transformation from the customer’s perspective in his presentation on “Change – a proven necessity.” Other customers will also be given a platform for reporting on successful projects, including Air Canada, Aigle Azur and Qatar Airways. The next two and a half days will be devoted to some 80 lectures and workshops. Attendees can put together their own individual program from a comprehensive range of topics. The Aviation Campus will offer space to talk with product experts and other airlines by featuring live demos and opportunities to test new products on site.

“The Airline Forum is a chance for us to show our customers how the Aviation Campus enables us to turn ideas into reality. Through the interplay between our innovative solutions and their continual development in cooperation with our customers, we are bringing the future of aviation to life. We look forward to lively conversations and valuable insights,” said Stefan Auerbach, CEO of Lufthansa Systems.
