- Airline Digital Retail – Vendors’ View on Challenges and Opportunities of the COVID CrisisThe airline industry has been hard hit by the global Covid-19 pandemic. Airlines have grounded their fleets, or reduced their capacity by 60, 70% or more. Since March 2020, travel has drastically changed, and is very slow to recover. At the time of this blog post at the end of September 2020, we are seeing only very slow recovery in the global air transportation market. For some domestic markets, things look a lot better, especially for China. In China, domestic travel is at over 90% of the capacity it was one year ago, thanks in large parts to their effective management of the pandemic as well as government stimulus to travel.
- Airline PSS Decisions – Challenge and Opportunity!For airlines faced with the reality of changing PSS systems in the next 12 to 24 months, or having the opportunity to either renew PSS contracts or procure eCommerce and digital distribution solutions (including direct, and mobile or NDC), we urge you to consider the process and grasp the chance to review optimisation opportunities. These can, and indeed should be part of the procurement process, potentially in combination with a traditional RFI/RFP.
