Over 73 per
cent of the world's
population which equates
to five billion people - carry a mobile device of some form. And so essentially, airlines need to work out how to effectively monetise the mobile channel. Airlines across the world currently have an incredibly unique opportunity to use mobile technology; not only for product differentiation but also to allow incremental sales and encourage increased brand loyalty. But crucially, they must also keep pace with ever-changing passenger expectations.

Key findings of the report:

  • Travellers are beginning to expect and adopt mobile services including travel apps across their entire journey: from improving the airport experience to checking in for their flight

  • Airline capability to effectively sell ancillary services through the mobile channel is over a year away
  • Implementing location-based services, payments and push notifications are priorities for airlines

Both the global airline industry and the travel and tourism industry have a unique opportunity to learn from this report and bring the future of travel into the present.
