In mid 2010 Lufthansa Systems started the programme Jetzt! to boost the company’s profitability.
It was intended to make up for dwindling sales prices and weak demand in a market environment plagued by margin pressure by cutting costs and generating additional income at short notice. These activities had an effect right in the first year. They enabled revenue, which had been sliding since 2007, to be stabilised. At the same time, Lufthansa Systems took its operating result past its 2009 and 2010 levels for the first time in the 2011 financial year. The adjusted operating margin improved as well as a consequence.
