Eurowings selects Lufthansa Systems for data center operations and SAP application management

February 21, 2012 by  

Web Hosting Services – German regional airline Eurowings has selected Lufthansa Systems to provide data center operations and SAP application management and hosting. The operation of the data center comprises around ten applications that are vital to its flight operations and includes a virtualization degree of a 100 per cent. Both companies recently signed an outsourcing contract for five years. The migration from the Eurowings data center will be completed within an exceptionally short period of five months.

“For this major outsourcing project we were looking for an experienced partner who is close to us so we can easily manage the handover of our data center operations as well as SAP application management”, said Thomas Muth, Vice President Information Technology of Eurowings. “The expertise in running critical airline applications as well as our long-standing and trustful business relationship has been another important aspect for our decision.”


Eurowings has been a customer of Lufthansa Systems since 2006, when it picked the Lido/RouteManual charting solution for its flight operations. Today the airline entirely relies on IT from Lufthansa Systems for its flight operations. It uses a broad range of solutions from the Lido family of products including Lido/Flight, the Lido/FlightBag EFB solutions, the Lido/eRouteManual electronic navigation charts plus NetLine/Sched, NetLine/Crew and NetLine/Ops for network planning, crew management and flight operations.

“We are proud that Eurowings has entrusted Lufthansa Systems with the operation of their core IT systems”, says Martin Rüschen, Senior Vice President Key Account Management Lufthansa Group Airlines at Lufthansa Systems. “By getting critical applications and having them operated in the data center by the same provider Eurowings achieves sizable technical and administrative synergies.” Lufthansa Systems has extensive experience in IT outsourcing for airlines as well as an increasing number of customers from a wide variety of industries, who as well benefit from the high standards of quality, availability and data security which are essential for the airline industry. Lufthansa Systems manages and maintains the systems of its customers at its own data centers in Germany, Great Britain, the U.S. and Singapore. The largest of them is the data center at the company’s headquarters in Kelsterbach, which is among the most powerful and modern in Europe.

Eurowings is a member of the Lufthansa Regional group of airlines, headquartered at Düsseldorf airport. It operates a modern fleet of 23 Bombardier CRJ900s to destinations throughout Europe. Founded in 1993, Eurowings has received a number of industry awards including “Airline of the Year” by the European Regions Airline Association.
