RwandAir optimises network and price planning with solutions from Lufthansa Systems

Posted 28 January 2020 · Add Comment

Lufthansa Systems has announced that RwandAir is using its NetLine/Sched and ProfitLine/Price solutions.

 

These products will optimise RwandAir’s complex flight scheduling and efficiently determine the best ticket prices based on the current market situation as well as supply and demand. RwandAir and its passengers will both benefit from these important control tools, which will simplify scheduling and support the airline’s expansion of its route network and available flights.

 

Yvonne Manzi Makolo, Rwandair CEO, said: “Thanks to our adaption of Lufthansa Systems’ scheduling and pricing solutions, our customers will be able to find fares more easily and enjoy an easy–to-understand flight schedule. Working closely with Lufthansa Systems, we have been able to optimize our ticket pricing and flight schedules to ensure RwandAir continues its ambitious growth as it enters into exciting new markets.”

 

NetLine/Sched, the schedule management system from Lufthansa Systems, helps airlines to make quick and well-founded decisions when creating and optimizing their flight schedules while taking operational and economic aspects into account. This is important due to the extremely volatile competitive environment in the airline industry, which permanently affects an airline's flight schedule and makes short-term modifications necessary. NetLine/Sched perfectly supports this highly complex process. Among other things, the solution helps to evaluate different schedule scenarios from an economic perspective. Using NetLine/Sched, airlines can take measures quickly and effectively to optimize their schedules.

 

ProfitLine/Price is a comprehensive pricing system which considers the current competitive situation, price trends and underlying fare structures. It covers all core processes in both reactive and proactive pricing for published and market fares. In addition to enabling airlines to react swiftly to market changes, the system provides powerful analysis tools for developing effective pricing strategies. Its integrated pricing simulation model goes one step further by forecasting revenue changes based on fare modifications.

 

“We are delighted that RwandAir, an important customer in Africa, is now relying on our NetLine/Sched and ProfitLine/Price solutions. I am certain that both products will make a significant contribution to the airline’s expansion plans,” said Marco Cesa, vice president regional management EMEA at Lufthansa Systems.
