Slot Management: How we at Lufthansa Systems support our customers in times of Covid-19 (Part 1/2)
Codeshare business will boost in the “New Normal”
Airlines all around the globe continuously are planning how their network should look like during and after the crisis. They had and they still have to reduce not only the frequency to specific destinations, they also have aircraft on the ground and ceased operations to some destinations overall.
How to trim your schedule & codeshare management for the recovery to the “New Normal”
The pandemic is having a worldwide effect. Nearly every economy has to fight with the negative impacts. The aviation sector in particular is very badly affected by the crisis. Airlines get away from the traditional seasonal-based schedule planning to a more agile way. What does it mean for schedule and codeshare management?
In (and beyond) a state of pandemic: is there still room for SESAR?
Current crisis is shifting the focus of airline decision-makers towards preserving liquidity, an imperative to survive. Often at the expense of those projects that are no longer viewed as necessary. Still, a survey has revealed that managers assign value to adopting SESAR solutions. To think beyond the pandemic.
Covid-19: Impacts to MinCTs and connection building
Airlines and airports have to consider measures to minimize the transmission of COVID-19 between travelers, airport staff and crew members. These actions may increase the time passengers have to spend at the airport before they board a flight or while waiting for the connecting flight.
Airline Crisis Assistance: Do you need experience to manage a crisis?
A few days ago while talking to a colleague, I realized that I feel old. He argued that “all crises are the same” and that it is possible to come up with a standard methodology to manage any type of crisis. So I took a breath and counted the airline industry crises that I experienced in my career as a network and schedule planner.
How can you stabilize and rebuild customer confidence during and after the Corona crisis?
Maintaining a trusting relationship with customers particularly in times of extensive uncertainty, is a key driver of business success and airlines need to focus on the long-term and lifetime value of their customers by proving to them that they care.
Operations control in a pandemic
The Coronavirus crisis will last for long. We need to accept this and implement solutions to manage the implications. Securing workforce and passengers health together with business continuity is vital. We recommend four ops control-related actions to build an actual border between the virus and the business.
How can MRO/CAMO support airline profitability during and after the corona crisis
The Corona crisis has pushed the airline industry to its limits, directly affecting the liquidity. Nevertheless, the crisis offers some opportunities to re-position airline’s maintenance strategies, not as cost-generating processes, but as a carefully designed, efficient and lean structure that may add value to the overall profitability.
How can we support airlines to safeguard profitability and survive the corona crisis?
In exceptional situations such as the current collapse in travel demand due to the worldwide Corona crisis, it is vital for airlines to quickly adapt their flight schedules to a new reality. Capacity and operational costs must be significantly reduced. Schedule changes must be immediately published, so that operational planning areas can react to reduce the impact on both customers and the airline’s resources.
