EgyptAir selects Lufthansa System for network management
EgyptAIr announced today that it has opted for NetLine/Plan, the Lufthansa Systems' solution for route networks. This airline said in a statement that this would raise the revenue and earnings potential of its network and increase profitability by up to five percent.
With the modern technology and user-friendly architecture of NetLine/Plan, EgyptAIr can adapt its schedules to market demand. It generates optimal schedules by simulating new connections and forecasting passenger flows, costs and revenues. This makes it possible for the airline to identify the strengths and weaknesses of the network and act accordingly.
Lufthansa Systems says that this gives the airline the ability to modify its flight plans in order to increase the overall capacity utilisation of its aircraft. As well as generating additional demand by offering optimised transfer connections and codeshare flights. Finally, the solution offers significant economic benefits through increased revenues and improved load factors. More than 50 airlines around the world have already opted for a NetLine solution.
“EgyptAIr is looking towards applying the best solutions for network planning optimization. We are looking for innovative ways for improving profitability and reduce operational costs” Captain Ayman Nasr, EgyptAIr CEO said
“With EgyptAIr we can fully implement the integration of several systems to optimise the overall benefit. NetLine/Plan and the SchedConnect codeshare management system already being used by Egyptair are part of our Integrated Commercial Platform (ICP) that covers all of an airline’s network and revenue management processes.” said Peter Ahnert, senior vice president regional management Middle East and Africa at Lufthansa Systems. Besides these planning solutions, Egyptair is also already using the Sirax AirFinance platform and the Lido/Flight flight planning solution.
