Join us for an exclusive webinar with Air Transport World on irregular operations

Patricia Simillon

Head of Strategic Marketing, Airlines, Amadeus IT Group

Air Transport World and Amadeus will be hosting an exclusive webinar on the 5 key areas where airlines can improve irregular operations management.

Putting the passenger first

 

There are many reasons why flight delays or cancellations occur, sometimes beyond the control of the airline - however passengers tend to get frustrated with the airline and expect them to provide a solution. With the proliferation of social media platforms, this passenger frustration can be spread worldwide virtually instantly. In irregular operations, airlines consider the direct costs incurred, but the indirect cost of loss of loyalty and reputation cannot be dismissed.

In the webinar, I will discuss with Stephan Copart, Head of Strategy and StB at IATA, how airlines can improve irregular operations management. We will look at how to:

  • Implement a standard service approach
  • Create a robust schedule
  • Empower passengers with intelligent re-accommodation options
  • Provide transparent communication and compensation
  • Manage the social media impact of disruptions

Register now to join the webinar on Thursday, October 10th – 11:00 AM ET / 16:00 PM GMT.
