With travel companies keen on leveraging social media, Interglobe Technologies (IGT), a global leader in providing integrated IT-BPO solutions to the travel and hospitality industry, and SimpliFlying, the leading airline and airport brand strategy firm, have come together to offer new solutions to airlines and airports looking to handle, improve or scale their social operations.

The partnership was announced at APEX Expo 2011 at Seattle.  Akhil Agarwal, Chief Operating Officer, IGT, says, “We believe that social media is altering travel planning and purchase.  As travelers get more social, travel brands will generate considerable social chatter. Our internal studies confirm that for every 100 customer service calls, airlines will attract 96 conversations over social media. Given this need, we believe that our partnership with SimpliFlying will enable the integration of marketing & customer support consulting with technology as an enabler.”

Shashank Nigam, Chief Executive Officer, SimpliFlying, adds, “There are 191 airlines on Twitter today, and only 85 actively tweet. Of these, only 28 provide 80% of the tweets. Most are obviously short on resources. As travel companies get more social, its time to provide options where they can scale their social media programs without a dramatic increase in costs. Our partnership with IGT will redefine the business strategies where we will be able to provide end-to-end customer engagement solutions to our customers.”

Mango Aviation

Specialist supplier of aviation services, Mango Aviation Partners, and Simpliflying, will collaborate to offer airlines and airports worldwide expert advice and support in a bid to drive results from the increasingly connected travellers of today.

Managing partner, Mango Aviation Partners, Andrew Cowen, explained: “In our view, aviation deregulation has brought much needed competition and increasing consumer choice to the travellers of today.

“However, where airlines and airports – aviation as a whole – lag behind other retail industries is in their detailed understanding of the requirements of so many air travellers. 
“Even today, far too often, customers come second in aviation decision-making in many cases simply through a lack of appreciation of traveller-needs and how they perceive airline and airport delivery.” 
Cowen highlighted: “By partnering with Simpliflying, we believe we can offer airlines and airports means and solutions to better understand travellers on their terms, and more sharply focus their customer offering in those areas that travellers truly value and drive their airline and airport choices.” 
Shashank Nigam, the CEO of SimpliFlying commented: “While social media presences have proliferated, airlines still have limited resources and need guidance on how to develop strategies to drive specific goals, rather than just running contests on such social media platforms. 
“Mango makes an ideal partner for SimpliFlying, due to its expertise and focus on airline start-ups, who are in need of effectively engaging travellers to drive revenue, loyalty and other goals,” Nigam concluded.
