Egypt Air will continue to use SchedConnect codeshare management solution

Posted 30 May 2018 · Add Comment

Lufthansa Systems has 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 synchronised 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.
