Lufthansa Systems (Booth E1)

FTE Global Lufthansa

Lufthansa Systems will use FTE Global 2015 as the launch pad for its new cGroup product line, and will demonstrate how its three new IT solutions can support airlines with Common Use Terminal Equipment (CUTE) systems. This software solution for airport operators enables airlines to make common use of existing airport IT infrastructure. In other words, they can all use the same hardware to handle passenger and flight processing via their own servers. cGroup comprises three products – cFront, cTraffic and cChart – and FTE Global delegates will be the first to be offered the chance to take a first-hand look at them.

  • cTraffic monitors your passenger handling processes from a single device over a whole airport and provides you with valuable business analyses.
  • cChart gives your senior management a global view of all your airport operations in real time.
  • cFront runs your DCS applications and web applications at your common use airports, no matter if it is CUTE or CUPPS.
