  • Leveraging Performance in Aircraft Maintenance

    In today’s constantly changing market environment, the aviation industry is facing diverse challenges such as declining ticket fares, strong susceptibility to political proceedings and increasing competition. These challenges are forcing all industry entities to take corrective action, also in the maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) segment.

    As costs for aircraft maintenance account for approximately 15% of an airline’s total direct operating costs (DOCs), strategies to maintain these costs at a low level play a vital role in the airline’s financial management. Improving a carrier’s financial situation means, amongst other things, reducing maintenance costs and increasing aircraft utilization.

    In this context, Lufthansa Consulting has analyzed the differing needs of premium carriers and low-cost carriers, and has also found a solution that will enable MRO market participants to lower maintenance costs sustainably and at the same time increase their performance efficiency. The aviation experts have developed an integrated approach focused specifically on the airline’s organizational structure, fleet composition and resource management – a proven way to increase an airline’s or MRO service provider’s competitiveness.
