Air Malta relies on IT solutions from Lufthansa Systems

Air Malta will be optimizing its processes using IT solutions from Lufthansa Systems. It will soon start planning flights with Lido/Flight 4D, monitoring flight operations with NetLine/Ops ++ and managing its flight firming with Revenue Integrity.

“We are in a growth phase and are headed towards a profitable future. We’ve set ourselves very ambitious goals. The IT solutions from Lufthansa Systems will help us achieve them. With these solutions, we can further optimize our route planning, improve our flight operations management and handle reservations more quickly. This will save us time and money,” said Alan Talbot CIO at Air Malta.

The Lido/Flight 4D flight planning solution calculates the most suitable route for each Air Malta flight based on all relevant flight data, such as weather conditions and the current airspace situation, including any restrictions. The solution enables airlines to optimize their flying time, costs and fuel consumption when planning routes. NetLine/Ops ++ monitors current flight operations. Air Malta can use this solution to avoid disruptions and significantly lower the costs incurred by delays. With its management-by-exception approach, NetLine/Ops ++ eliminates diversions caused by minor problems. The operations controller can focus on critical flights which demand a fast reaction. Revenue Integrity will support Air Malta in its primary revenue management goal: maximizing earnings. The solution improves the quality of reservation data and optimizes inventory control and demand forecasts. This lowers the compensation payments incurred through overbooking and losses on account of seat spoilage. Experts estimate that airlines can increase their revenue by around one euro per segment booked and thus improve their financial result by an average of two to three percent.

“Air Malta was won over by the high quality of our products as well as the potential savings and flexibility offered by our solutions. For example, we connected Revenue Integrity to a third-party reservation system for Air Malta,” said Marco Cesa, Senior Vice President Regional Management EMEA at Lufthansa Systems.
