About Lufthansa Consulting Europe

 

Europe is an increasingly challenging market for the aviation industry. A growing number of constraints such as additional taxes, a rising number of night curfews, changing customer behavior or growing competition mean that aviation businesses have to continuously update their strategy and efficiency to ensure sustainability. To support you in dealing with upcoming challenges, we keep track of the latest industry developments and continuously develop our service portfolio.

Lufthansa Consulting enjoys a strong market presence in our European home region and we have a long-standing track record of successfully completed project assignments. Although our focus is on the aviation industry - airport, airlines, investors and service providers are our key clients - we also serve adjacent industries such as tourism, logistics and other modes of transportation in elaborating customized solutions.

  • Digital transformation defines customer relationship management

    Digital transformation is of rising importance for the aviation industry. To keep up with increasing passenger demands, airlines and airports urgently need to expand their customer offerings with regard to digital services. Consequently, it is one of the main topics at this year’s Passenger Terminal Expo & Conference in Amsterdam from 14 -16 March, dealing with the most recent issues and innovations of the aviation business. Senior Consultant Georg Baust will represent Lufthansa Consulting at this event and will give a speech entitled “Don’t adapt, innovate – increase customer experience with digital transformation”

     In order to stay competitive it is key for airlines and airports to adjust to technological developments. As the customer journey and experience should always be the main focus of a successful business, an orientation towards customer needs and habits is essential. Nowadays, those needs are mostly influenced by the use of digital media. The task for airlines and airports is to create possibilities and solutions to embrace the potential of digitalization. 

     For instance, Lufthansa Consulting supported and accompanied the implementation of wireless internet connection to passenger-owned devices and inflight internet connectivity on long-haul as well as short-/medium haul flights for a major European airline client. The advantages of digital connectivity have significantly improved customer experience and enhance a sustainable revenue perspective. The successful interaction with customers provides customer loyalty with higher lifetime value. After all, only customer loyalty can assure long term profitability.
