Lufthansa taps Google’s cloud tech to mitigate the impact of flight delays
Lufthansa is partnering with Google’s cloud unit in an effort to minimize the impact of flight delays and other irregularities on its passengers.
The German airline group will use Google Cloud’s infrastructure to bring its disparate IT systems and data on processes like aircraft replacement and crew scheduling into one unified platform.
The aim is to optimize Lufthansa’s operations, especially during flight disruptions caused by extreme weather or congestion. The company’s staff will use an operations platform powered by Google’s cloud tech to come up with suggestions for putting its flight plan back on track.
A team of Google software engineers will be onsite with Lufthansa’s IT and operations experts develop and test the firm’s new platform.
