Hong Kong's Cathay Pacific Airways has signed a five-year-contract with Lufthansa Systems to use its NetLine/Ops ++ operations control system, which will enable the local airline to optimally control its flight operations and react quickly to unforeseen flight irregularities, thus minimising costs, according to the Shipping Gazette.
"NetLine/Ops ++ is a great next step for us," said Alex Chan, manager Integrated Operations Centre (IOC) at Cathay Pacific. "We are continuously improving our ability to manage our network and this system will further enhance our capabilities. We're particularly impressed with its ability to help us be more nimble with schedule changes."
The redesigned operations control solution NetLine/Ops ++ will make Cathay Pacific's flight operations even more efficient, and in the event of disruptions like delays or cancelled flights, it can help lower the costs arising from positioning flights or passenger layovers. The IT solution's new functionalities simplify information management, enable a higher level of automation and improve support in key decision-making processes, according to Lufthansa Systems.
"We are pleased to be able to expand our cooperation with Cathay Pacific," said Lufthansa Systems Asia Pacific vice president Olivier Kruger. "Having one of the world's most highly respected airlines as a NetLine/Ops ++ customer is proof of the high quality of our product."
