Google Cloud selected by Lufthansa Group to optimize airline operations

Google Cloud has announced that Lufthansa Group has selected Google Cloud to optimize its operations performance, the company said.

Lufthansa Group will combine previously disparate systems and data feeds into one unified platform by leveraging Google Cloud´s infrastructure and leading machine-learning capabilities.

Lufthansa Group´s new operations platform will simultaneously consider a number of factors of a stable operation-aircraft rotation, aircraft maintenance, crew assignment and more–and provide recommendations to improve passenger punctuality, on-time flights and flight plan adherence in case of disruptions, such as weather events or delays due to airspace congestion.

In 2018, the Lufthansa Group generated sales of around EUR 35.8 billion. Lufthansa Group welcomed more than 145 million passengers and employs more than 135,000 personnel (2019). Lufthansa Group airlines serve around 270 destinations in 105 countries (during winter 2019-2020).

Google Cloud provides organizations with leading infrastructure, platform capabilities and industry solutions, along with expertise, to reinvent their business with data-powered innovation on modern computing infrastructure.
