Lufthansa Systems announced Korean Airlines as a new customer of its network planning system NetLine/Plan and schedule management solution NetLine/Sched. Designed to meet the demands for operational integrity and effortless schedule management the combination of these two products is an ideal solution for Korean Airlines. It not only provides Korean Airlines with modern and efficient planning and scheduling tools but it also enables them to respond rapidly to any competitor actions and sales and marketing initiatives that may impact their schedule and operations.
“We are impressed by Lufthansa Systems’ network planning and scheduling tools, which enable network optimisation by automating complicated calculations required for analysis. We are very excited to be a new Lufthansa Systems’ customer, and expect the NetLine products to enable us to enhance our network to meet our customers’ needs and provide stable schedule operations,” said Jeong Soo Park, Managing Vice President and Director of Passenger Network at Korean Airlines.
The South Korean carrier identified the potential to enhance and improve their network planning capability with Lufthansa Systems’ advanced network planning and scheduling applications. NetLine/Plan along with NetLine/Sched provides Korean Airlines with the capacity to optimise their network and increase profitability and resilience of their schedules. “It was an intensive vendor selection process, listening carefully to Korean Air’s needs and always providing them with the necessary expertise and clarification to enable them to make the right decision,” explained Sergej Bukovac, Project Manager at Lufthansa Systems.
For the first time the South Korean national carrier will also introduce a comprehensive optimiser portfolio with the Lufthansa Systems NetLine Fleet Assigner. The ability to optimise the network and schedule at any point in the planning lifecycle will deliver the flexibility and speed-to-market that Korean Airlines demands. “Sharing the same vision to optimise Network Planning with the industry’s most accurate forecast and planning systems beyond managing everyday life as network schedule planners, we were able to create a win-win strategy while valuing this all-important relationship with Korean Air,” stated Kazuya Ota, Lufthansa Systems Vice President, Far East Asia and Taiwan.
