Mobile Commerce for Airlines

Mobile Commerce for Airlines

How much revenue does your airline capture from the mobile channel? Could it be more?

A look around any airport today confirms a new mobile environment: as travelers pass through security, navigate the terminal, check flight status, re-charge in the lounge or wait at the gate, their attention is focused their smartphones and digital devices – the most valued connections for travelers today.

Airlines want to be a part of that connection, but often struggle to implement a successful mobile strategy. Large carriers are reluctant to overhaul legacy systems in favor of a mobile approach, and instead are tempted to “bolt on” mobile capabilities to existing internet-based processes. Airlines in emerging markets may lead with mobile, but need help in getting started as well as speed to market. Global airlines may struggle to integrate their payments architecture with mobile, or lack the technology to support the many type of alternate payment methods that passengers want – and expect - to use.

To overcome these challenges, airlines need mobile-first strategies and operations that encompass the entire passenger journey, including loyalty programs, passenger interactions, passenger transactions and ancillary sales. Airlines that store passenger data and payment data to provide seamless mobile booking capabilities will gain a competitive advantage and capture new revenue streams.

Digital travel sales are growing 8-10% annually, and airlines need immediate solutions that will prepare them to compete in a mobile-first environment.
