Ai Video: Taking off as a digital travel enterprise?

First Published on 11th October, 2017

How can airlines make the most of data and focus on retailing?

A section of the industry asserts that it is time for airlines to split digital commerce from operations. Of course, areas of concerns include business continuity or the current organizational structure as embracing change in this industry isn’t straightforward. But, if airlines hope to be in control, they need to find ways to identify passengers.

For instance, the game isn’t about identifying and members of a loyalty program. Rather the focus has shifted towards infrequent travellers or even anonymous travellers. Personalisation and contextualisation are increasingly becoming a norm as airlines strive to become digital enterprises. As Binay Warrier, Head of Business Development, Loyalty & CRM, IBS Software Services says, it is time for airlines to take risk.  


Hear from experts about how airlines are gearing up for optimizing of data and retailing  at the upcoming 8th Mega Event Worldwide, to be held in Palm Springs, CA, USA (29 November – 1 December, 2017).
