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.

  • Achieve the next level of airline operational excellence

    The worldwide cost of operational disruptions in 2018 is estimated to be over 65bn Euros and as the pressure in 2019 has further increased, Lufthansa Consulting expects an even higher need for action. 

    Our experts firmly believe that operations improvement programs across the whole aviation industry can have a significant impact. To connect our vision of Operational Excellence with airline perspectives we created an online survey to understand the latest developments and maturity of the industry in this area.

    We would like to invite airline managers (Operations Directors, Operations Excellence Project Managers or the Heads of OCC) to take part in our research by 08 November 2019. 
    The survey focuses on Schedule and Operations Planning, Operations Steering and Performance Management. Areas of research range from the company culture to the use of artificial intelligence and cover particularly areas of Scheduling, Flight Operations/Operations Control (OCC) and Ground Operations.

    The questionnaire has 40 questions and should not take more than 30 minutes to complete. Only one questionnaire should be answered per airline.
