Eurowings selects Lufthansa Systems for data center operations and SAP application management
Source: Lufthansa Systems

German regional airline Eurowings has selected Lufthansa Systems to provide data center operations and SAP application management and hosting. The operation of the data center comprises around ten applications that are vital to its flight operations and includes a virtualization degree of a 100 per cent. Both companies recently signed an outsourcing contract for five years. The migration from the Eurowings data center will be completed within an exceptionally short period of five months.

“For this major outsourcing project we were looking for an experienced partner who is close to us so we can easily manage the handover of our data center operations as well as SAP application management”, said Thomas Muth, Vice President Information Technology of Eurowings. “The expertise in running critical airline applications as well as our long-standing and trustful business relationship has been another important aspect for our decision.”

Eurowings has been a customer of Lufthansa Systems since 2006, when it picked the Lido/RouteManual charting solution for its flight operations. Today the airline entirely relies on IT from Lufthansa Systems for its flight operations. It uses a broad range of solutions from the Lido family of products including Lido/Flight, the Lido/FlightBag EFB solutions, the Lido/eRouteManual electronic navigation charts plus NetLine/Sched, NetLine/Crew and NetLine/Ops for network planning, crew management and flight operations.

“We are proud that Eurowings has entrusted Lufthansa Systems with the operation of their core IT systems”, says Martin Rüschen, Senior Vice President Key Account Management Lufthansa Group Airlines at Lufthansa Systems. “By getting critical applications and having them operated in the data center by the same provider Eurowings achieves sizable technical and administrative synergies.”
