Social media is increasingly becoming a tool of strategic competitive advantage for airlines. Delta Airlines now sells tickets on Facebook. Virgin America uses Twitter to launch new routes and save on marketing. And airBaltic [Disclosure: SimpliFlying Client] probably has a bigger presence online than in the real world. So how can other airlines learn from the likes of these successful airlines to build their own social media strategies? We have the answer.
Airline Business and Flight Global, in association with SimpliFlying, are delighted to be launching the first social media conference dedicated to aviation and all things airline related. The conference will take place on 1st October 2010 in Central London and you can now Register here. The conference will also be featuring the 1st ever SimpliFlying-Airline Business Awards for Excellence in Social Media – and you can start by nominating your airline for the SimpliFlying Heroes award, to be considered.
The distinguished speakers list includes Raúl Rodríguez, general manager for Europe, Pluna and CEO, Freespirit; renowned social media expert Paula Berg (of Southwest Airlines fame), SAS eCommerce manager ancillary services Christian Kamhaug, airBaltic Chief Commercial Officer Tero Taskila, Google UK industry manager, Travel, Nathan Bucholz, and many more. Moreover, the industry-favorite, Mary Kirby of the Runway Girl fame will be the Chairperson for the conference.
Once again, I’d like to personally invite you to join us in what will be an exceptional day of sharing and learning in London. You can register for the conference here.
