Jet Airways relies on IT from Lufthansa Systems for flight operations

Lufthansa Systems announced that India’s premier international airline, Jet Airways, is expanding its cooperation with Lufthansa Systems by using the NetLine/Ops operations control system. A contract to this effect was signed recently. This modern IT solution will optimize the airline’s flight operations processes, enabling Jet Airways to benefit from greater efficiency and lower costs.

Jet Airways will be working with the NetLine/Ops operations control solution. This system makes it even easier for airlines to optimize flight operations control and respond quickly to irregularities, even if they occur on short notice. This kind of flexibility minimizes fast-growing costs. NetLine/Ops is a component of the Integrated Operations Control Center Platform (IOCC) from Lufthansa Systems.

Mr. Nikos Kardassis, CEO, Jet Airways, said, “On-time performance is a key differentiator for any airline.  As a responsive, customer-centric organization, it is critical that we handle any planned or unplanned deviation from schedule with minimal inconvenience to our guests. The selection of the state-of-the-art NetLine/Ops system from Lufthansa Systems for our Operations Control Center will help us achieve this, and will enable us to deliver superior on time performance. The implementation of NetLine /Ops will further result in optimizing our operational efficiency, resulting in overall organizational productivity.”

Lufthansa Systems also welcomes the expanded cooperation with Jet Airways. “We are proud that Jet Airways has decided for an additional solution from our portfolio. With Lido/Flight and NetLine/Ops, we will help our customer to strengthen its leading market position in India and play an even larger role internationally as well,” said Dr. Gunter Küchler, Member of the Executive Board at Lufthansa Systems.

Jet Airways is based in Mumbai. The airline was founded in 1993 and currently serves 22 international destinations and 52 destinations in India.
