Vueling Relies on IT from Lufthansa Systems

Increased efficiency through optimized flight planning and navigation (August 20, 2009) -- Lufthansa Systems today announced that Vueling Airlines will optimize its flight operations using the Lido RouteManual navigation charts, the Lido Operations Center (Lido OC) flight planning solution and navigation data from Lufthansa Systems. Together, these solutions will enable the Spanish airline to benefit from the seamless integration of its flight planning and operations processes. "The merger of clickair and Vueling has significantly expanded our new airline's fleet and operations. We were impressed by the intelligent functionality of the Lufthansa Systems solutions, which will help us optimize our flight operations and reduce costs," said Luis Gallego, Chief Operating Officer of Vueling. Vueling and clickair merged in July, creating Spain's second-largest airline after Iberia. For Lufthansa Systems, this agreement is further proof of the trust which European airlines have in its solutions: "With our portfolio of products, we serve airlines worldwide, regardless of their business model or fleet size. I am very pleased that Vueling has become the latest low-cost carrier to recognize the economic benefits of our innovative solutions," said Stefan Auerbach, Senior Vice President Sales EMEA at Lufthansa Systems.
