Brussels Airlines, KLM, TUIfly, and United Rev Up Their Ancillary Revenue Engines

June 2, 2015, Dublin, Ireland The most recent ancillary revenue report sponsored by CarTrawler celebrates retail and merchandising innovations that support ancillary revenue.  It offers a collection of examples that rely upon technology and training to create a type of mercantile seduction that encourages consumers to open their wallets and spend.

Vendors were invited to share details of client success stories.  These were included with other examples, such as KLM and TUIfly.com, to create a report filled with services and products that stimulate the imagination and a carrier’s income.  The examples in this report demonstrate the revenue power harnessed when companies engage their customers with attractive storefronts, be they in the city center, online, or up in the air:

  • Brussels Airlines added branded fares capability to its website courtesy of a merchandising engine provided by Datalex.  The carrier disclosed that website revenue jumped by 30% within a month of introduction.
  • We buy more when we see others buying.  Professor Pedro Gardete of Stanford analyzed data from 2,000 flights and found that a passenger observing another passenger making a purchase is 30% more likely to make a purchase themselves.
  • Gate Retail Onboard offers a mobile application to its client airlines designed to train and motivate flight attendants to sell more onboard.  Sales for a European airline were lifted by 13% among cabin crew who traditionally had sales lower than their peers.

“Brussels Airlines, JetBlue, KLM, and United Rev Up Their Ancillary Revenue Engines” was released today as a free 14-page report available from CarTrawler’s website:  www.cartrawler.com/downloads.  The 2015 Ancillary Revenue Report series is sponsored by CarTrawler.  CarTrawler’s connects business and leisure customers and online travel retailers with more road and rail transport solutions than they will find anywhere else.
