TAP Portugal inks deal with Lufthansa Systems

Portuguese airline TAP Portugal has selected myIDTravel from Lufthansa Systems for the management of its interline staff travel. The integrated IT solution enables the airline’s employees to issue electronic tickets for private and duty trips on other carriers. This simplifies the related staff travel management processes.

myIDTravel is an integrated solution for efficient ID travel management. Through e-ticketing, the integration of self-service functions and a high level of automation, airlines can optimize their ID travel management. For staff interline travel, airlines still issue a large number of paper tickets each day. myIDTravel eliminates the need for paper tickets and enables airlines to issue electronic ID tickets for interlining flights. In addition to e-ticketing, airlines benefit from streamlining all processes involved in ID travel - from maintaining ID agreements and eligibility rules to revenue accounting and interline settlement.

TAP Portugal is the leading Portuguese airline, in operation since 1945 and a member of Star Alliance since 2005. Its hub in Lisbon is a key European gateway at the crossroads of Africa, North and South America, where TAP stands out as the international leading carrier in operation to Brazil. The company’s network comprises 65 destinations in 31 countries worldwide. TAP has a modern fleet of 55 Airbus aircraft, plus 16 aircraft operating in regional carrier PGA’s colours. TAP has used IT solutions from Lufthansa Systems for some time, including the flight planning solution Lido/Flight.
