Lufthansa Systems eases Rwanda’s flight schedules

Rwanda’s carrier- RwandAir customers will benefit from
easy-to-understand schedules and prices following a new partnership between the
airline and Lufthansa Systems.

The new
partnership means Rwandair.com will better display the cheapest available
ticket prices to meet customer demand and make booking with the Rwandan flag
carrier easier than ever.

The
enhancements follow RwandAir’s adoption of Lufthansa Systems’ NetLine/Sched and
ProfitLine/Price solutions, which optimise the airline’s complex flight
schedule to more efficiently determine the best ticket prices, based on the
current market situation as well as supply and demand.

NetLine/Sched,
the schedule management system from Lufthansa Systems, helps airlines to
quickly make the best decisions when creating and optimising their flight
schedules, while also taking operational and economic aspects into account.

ProfitLine/Price is a comprehensive system for pricing which
considers the current competitive situation, price trends and underlying fare
structures.

These two
control programs not only simplify the airline’s scheduling, they also
effectively support RwandAir’s expansion of its route network and pricing
strategy by forecasting revenue changes based on fare modifications.

Marco Cesa, Lufthansa Systems Vice President Regional Management
EMEA, said they are delighted that RwandAir, an important customer in Africa,
is now relying on their NetLine/Sched and ProfitLine/Price solutions.

“I am certain that both products will make a significant contribution to the airline’s expansion plans,” he said.

Netline/Sched
is a dynamic system which enables airlines like to make swift and effective
changes and important short-term modifications to their highly complex live
flight schedules.

These
systems use economic algorithms to help evaluate different schedule scenarios
to create a comprehensive pricing system.
