The Airline Industry has continued to rapidly grow over the last few years. According to Rafat Ali, the travel industry is the second-fastest growing sector globally, with 3.9 percent per annum over the next ten years.

What are Push Notifications?

Marketing today is all about capturing the consumer at the right time with the right message, and for airlines that is no different. One way to achieve this is through Push Notifications on mobile devices. Push Notifications are messages sent to the user who has the app installed on a device. When the Push Notification is received, the message is displayed on the home or lock screen of the device. Push Notifications are generally used to share news of new product offerings, current offers or events while the user is not actively using the application. Push Notifications are commonly used by large enterprise brands to re-engage dormant users.

Xtremepush has recently updated their Push Notification offering to include buttons for secondary, complementary actions that will allow your users to interact with notifications from outside of the app or website. They can be used to drive users to take immediate, specific action, make decisions or choices.

How can Airlines benefit from using Push Notifications?

Push Notification provides value and information to users. For example, an Airline company can benefit from push notifications by :

  1. Driving direct & secondary revenue through the mobile channel
  2. Increasing average spend and booking frequency of airline passengers
  3. Enhancing, speeding up and de-stressing the passenger journey by displaying contextually relevant information on devices at the right time and in the right place.
  4. Providing a greater and more personalised passenger experience
  5. Rewarding customer loyalty and boost user retention
