Germany | August 11, 2015– Brussels Airlines will continue working with the SchedConnect codeshare management solution from Lufthansa Systems. The two companies recently renewed their agreement for another five years. This confirms the customer’s satisfaction with the IT solution from Lufthansa Systems. The proven codeshare management system also offers several new functionalities. Among other things, SchedConnect will make it possible to integrate the new Altea passenger service system (PSS) which is being used by Brussels Airlines.

SchedConnect calculates the optimal codeshare connections for the respective airline on a daily basis. To do this, the system processes schedule data from more than 150 airlines worldwide. If a minimum connecting time fails to be met due to a schedule change or a partner flight is canceled, the system automatically assigns the marketing flight number to another suitable connecting flight from the partner. Changes are sent through the reservation systems to travel agents and customers as well as to the operative and passenger-related systems of the airlines involved. The SchedConnect IT solution therefore offers a high degree of automation.

Brussels Airlines is the leading Belgian airline and a member of the Star Alliance. The airline offers flights to more than 90 destinations in Europe, North America and Africa. Brussels Airlines operates more than 300 flights daily with a fleet of 49 aircraft.
