IBS Software, an Indian IT firm specialising in applications for the global aviation industry, has signed a deal with Lufthansa to replace the German airline’s legacy Unisys-based Crew Management applications with an IBS crew management solution. IBS’ iFlight Crew will replace the legacy Unisys-based application which Lufthansa has used for the past 30 years.
As part of this implementation, over 40 inbound/outbound interfaces will be built to aid in crew rostering, crew scheduling, crew check-in, crew hotel and transport by facilitating seamless dataflow to the existing crew management applications.
The multi-million-euro deal was formally signed by Dr. Roland Schütz, CIO of Lufthansa, and V K Mathews, Executive Chairman of The IBS Group, on the side lines of the IBS Customer Summit in Dubai.
The IBS airline crew management system, iFlight Crew, is an integrated software package which determines the most cost-effective use of airline crew at every stage from tactical manpower management through day-of-operations execution to disruption recovery.
