General Press Releases Wednesday May 11, 2005 09:32
KELSTERBACH, May 11 -- Xinhua/PRNewswire/AsiaNet
Lufthansa Systems today announced an agreement with THAI for the SAP
Aerospace & Defense industry solution.   This contract with yet another Asian
airline significantly bolsters the presence of Lufthansa Systems in the Asian
market.   The MRO (Maintenance, Repair & Overhaul) solution will enable THAI to
optimize its business processes and to achieve sustainable cost savings.
In the future, the Thai Airways International Public Company Limited will
rely on the proven MRO expertise of Lufthansa Systems.   "We selected Lufthansa
Systems based on their successful MRO track record and their presence in the
Asian market as evidenced by the MRO project at Asiana," says Wg. Cdr. Supachai
Limpisvasti, THAI's Managing Director, Technical Department, commenting on the
agreement.   He added that "The advanced SAP solution puts us in a position to
achieve sustainable MRO cost reductions in the future,"
The aircraft servicing and maintenance business requires the highest levels
of quality, security and accountability.   Lufthansa Systems fulfills these
requirements with the SAP Aerospace & Defense industry solution.   The MRO
experience of Lufthansa Systems also demonstrates that potential cost savings
can be identified especially through more efficient maintenance and event
planning.   This enables airlines to maximize aircraft, equipment and engine
uptime, reduce warehousing and inventory costs, and optimize the use of
resources.
In addition to THAI and Asiana Airlines, Lufthansa Technik, CityLine,
Alianza Summa and Varig Engineering & Maintenance (VEM) also use the integrated
software solution from Lufthansa Systems.
"Our many years of international MRO experience enable us to respond
flexibly to specific customer requirements and to adapt our IT solutions
accordingly," says Dr. Gunter K?chler, Managing Director of Lufthansa Systems.
"The contract is a great success for us and strengthens our position in the
Asian market.   I am confident that other projects in this market and with THAI
will follow," says K?chler.
The project will be based in Bangkok. A team made up of experts from THAI
and Lufthansa Systems will commence work there in May 2005.   The project is
scheduled to run 24 months.
