In pursuit for achieving the highest network planning revenues and customer satisfaction, EGYPTAIR has opted for NetLine/Plan, the IT provider’s solution to manage the route network. This enables the national airline of Egypt to raise the revenue and earnings potential of its network and increase profitability by up to five percent.
With the modern technology and user-friendly architecture of NetLine/Plan, EGYPTAIR can adapt its schedules to market demand. NetLine/Plan generates optimal schedules by simulating new connections and forecasting passenger flows, costs and revenues. This will make it possible for the airline to identify the strengths and weaknesses of the network and act accordingly.
NetLine/Plan gives EGYPTAIR the ability to modify its flight plans in order to increase the overall capacity utilization of its aircraft. The airline can also generate additional demand by offering optimized transfer connections and codeshare flights. Finally, the solution offers significant economic benefits through increased revenues and improved load factors. More than 50 airlines around the world have already opted for a NetLine solution.
“EGYPTAIR is looking towards applying the best solutions for network planning optimization. We are looking for innovative ways for improving profitability and reduce operational costs” Captain Ayman Nasr, EGYPTAIR AIRLINES Chairman & CEO commented.
“Our positive experience with solutions from Lufthansa Systems encouraged us to opt for a NetLine product to optimize our network planning. NetLine/Plan gives us even better control over our growing route network and our cooperation with partner airlines,” says Yasser Elramly, Vice President Commercial at Egyptair from his side.
“With EGYPTAIR we can fully implement the integration of several systems to optimize the overall benefit. NetLine/Plan and the SchedConnect codeshare management system already being used by Egyptair are part of our Integrated Commercial Platform (ICP) that covers all of an airline’s network and revenue management processes.” explains Peter Ahnert, Senior Vice President Regional Management Middle East and Africa at Lufthansa Systems. Besides these planning solutions, Egyptair is also already using the Sirax AirFinance platform and the Lido/Flight flight planning solution.
