Press Release hub banner blue with title in red white and blueLufthansa Systems announces Saudi Arabian Airlines (SAUDIA) as a new customer of its codeshare management and schedule distribution system SchedConnect. The solution delivers efficient and automated codeshare management by saving significant time in daily tasks and identifying ideal and potential codeshare connections.

SchedConnect is the leading codeshare management and schedule distribution system. The solution enables airlines to realize savings and increase revenue. SchedConnect improves efficiency in airlines internal processes by saving significant time through automation of their schedule data exchange from and to partners and third parties.

Carriers profit from the concept of a central flight repository as well as a central schedule database where schedules of all customers and of their codeshare partners are saved in real-time. This allows to reduce the error rate in the schedule management process and avoid customer claims and pricing errors with optimized codeshare connections.


“We are happy to extend our partnership and welcome Saudi Arabian Airlines as a new customer of SchedConnect,” said Michael Becker, Senior Product Manager NetLine Solutions at Lufthansa Systems.

“SAUDIA is the first member of the SkyTeam Alliance that is using SchedConnect as their codeshare management and schedule distribution system. The implementation was done almost entirely remotely. Teams on both sides showed a lot of commitment, leading to the success of this project. Expanding SchedConnect within the SkyTeam alliance is also a remarkable milestone for us,” continued Becker.
