Lufthansa Systems Market Opportunities, M&A and Geo Expansions

In August 2020, Lufthansa Systems launched the New Demand Indicators (NDI) Dashboard, a web-based solution that displays schedule insights, weekly market size updates, and current travel restrictions through an intuitive and user-friendly interface. The newly developed NDI Dashboard enables businesses operating in the aviation industry to analyze and evaluate ever-changing supply and demand trends. Based on comprehensive information on scheduled vs. flown flights, supply-driven market size estimates, and COVID-19 travel restrictions, decision-makers are able to make smart data-driven choices when rebuilding airline networks in the recovery phase.

"In February 2018, Lufthansa Systems launched Lido/SurfaceData for the first time, which delivers extremely precise worldwide obstacle data to software providers and avionics manufacturers.

Furthermore, BoardConnect strengthens its position in the Asia-Pacific region. Lufthansa Systems, in partnership with Gogo, developed an integrated and seamless experience between BoardConnect and the Gogo internet connectivity system to ensure Virgin Australia guests have access to both systems quickly and easily.

This latest software version of BoardConnect 5.0, features a fresh design with a new user interface and an open platform architecture based on HTML5 compared to the native app approach of earlier versions used by Virgin Australia."

Lufthansa Systems Risks and Challenges

Lufthansa Systems’ future rests with its parent the German airlines, which may be better off selling the unit off in order to give it the autonomy needed to better compete with other full-blown transportations technology vendors.

Lufthansa Systems Ecosystem, Partners, Resellers and SI

In 2019, Lufthansa Systems partnered with Mahata Aero Teknologi. Their e-commerce solution is based on commercial offers and advertising partners, which generate revenues in order to refinance Internet services. This makes it possible to allocate costs in the long-term if necessary so that airlines can offer their passengers free Internet access.

In April 2018, Lufthansa Systems partnered with Inadvia. The partnership will lead to increased advertising revenues for Lufthansa Systems’ BoardConnect customers by allowing them to monetize their in-flight entertainment (IFE) through the global digital programmatic marketplace.

Additionally, in June 2018, Inmarsat, provider of global mobile satellite communications, released Lufthansa Systems as the latest partner for its Aviation Certified Application Provider (CAP) Programme. Inmarsat has accredited Lufthansa Systems’ Lido charting applications, which are already being used by over 120 airlines around the world for their flight operations. These provide pilots with digital navigation charts, documents and messages, and are available on both Windows and iOS.
