The month gone by is a marketer’s delight. Valentine’s Day is arguably the most globally recognisable day for “expressing love” – and airlines were rather keen, as always, to cash in on the feel-good factor this year.  This month’s benchmark report has 15 new case-studies that airline marketers will love (pun intended).

The Monthly Airline Marketing Benchmark Report helps in keeping abreast of the most innovative airline marketing initiatives across the world. Comprising 15 fresh case-studies each month, this report is produced in partnership with our good friends at This March report is the seventh in the series and if you haven’t subscribed yet, you’ve already missed out on 90 great airline case-studies. (View past issues here.)

What’s in the March Report?

The March issue features 15 great campaigns from airlines such as Emirates, Virgin Atlantic,  and more! There are five categories of campaigns in the report, which begins with Theme of the Month: Valentine’s Day featuring a number of great campaigns from airlines such as Jetstar, Scoot and JetBlue.  Other great initiatives are included such as Qantas’ “Sand Plane”, Emirates’ “Share a Smile” and Lufthansa India’s “Star Chef Contest”. Transavia – a low-cost subsidiary of AirFrance-KLM, meanwhile, delighted passengers with their ticket-giveaways and drove a lot of buzz while doing so!

These case studies from around the aviation world focus on experiential marketing campaigns, social media campaigns and traditional marketing initiatives. From Delta’s unique product showcase at TED to Air New Zealand’s new safety video, each case-study will make you sit up and take note of how each was executed and how it helped drive business objectives.
