Lufthansa Selects Google Cloud to Optimize Operational Performance
Flight delays, rebookings due to missed flights and extreme weather conditions are some of the many factors that can disrupt a flight schedule.
In the interests of their customers, the Lufthansa Group airlines are always keen to return to a stable flight plan as quickly as possible.
Lufthansa Group has therefore chosen Google Cloud as a strategic partner to further improve its operational performance and minimize the impact of irregularities on its passengers.
The aim is to build a platform that will suggest scenarios to return to a stable flight plan in the event of an irregularity so that passengers still arrive at their destinations as punctually and comfortably as possible.
This will be done by merging data from various processes that are relevant for stable operations (for example aircraft replacement and maintenance as well as crew scheduling).
A joint team of operations experts, developers and engineers from the Lufthansa Group and software engineers from Google Cloud will be developing and testing the appropriate platform. The test launch will take place in Zurich with SWISS.
