Building upon the decision made last year to utilise Lufthansa Systems’ planning and scheduling solutions NetLine/Plan and NetLine/Sched, Korean Air has now additionally chosen SchedConnect to manage their entire network scheduling. This move shows that the airline is even more dedicated to streamlining its scheduling, making it more efficient, and giving its passengers a better overall travel experience.
To effectively manage scheduling for the airline’s more than 30 codeshare partners, Korean Air will begin by implementing a lean version of SchedConnect. The main goal of this first implementation is to see how well a highly automated system can handle Korean Air’s marketing schedule, as well as those of important partners like Delta Air Lines.
With SchedConnect, Korean Air will be able to manage and update its schedule with ease, even with the high volume of changes and extensive number of partnerships it maintains within the Asia Pacific region and beyond. The airline will benefit from the idea of a central flight repository and a central schedule database where the schedules of all customers and codeshare partners are saved in real time. This lets the airline cut down on the number of scheduling mistakes, avoid customer complaints and pricing mistakes, and get the most out of its codeshare connections.
“After the implementation of NetLine/Plan and NetLine/Sched last year, we are now pleased to deepen this partnership. Adding SchedConnect is an amazing step forward for Korean Air to manage and adopt entire network scheduling end-to-end solutions,” said Kazuya Ota, Vice President of Far East Asia and Taiwan at Lufthansa Systems. “For us, the further expansion of SchedConnect within the SkyTeam alliance is a great success.”
“SchedConnect is a sophisticated, multi-tenant system designed for codeshare management and schedule data exchange. The system is specifically designed to meet the needs of airlines operating in codeshare partnerships, which can be complex and time-consuming to manage manually,” said Korean Air.
