Data will provide airport with insight into passengers’ planning and search preferences to future shape its offering
Skyscanner will provide the airport with data through its travel insight tool which taps into global search data from some 50 million monthly visitors.
Through the partnership, Dublin Airport will benefit from insight into passengers’ planning and search preferences. Information analysed will help the airport further develop its offering.
The airport will host Skyscanner’s flight search technology on its App, giving passengers the ability to search and book travel destinations with airlines operating from the hub.
Initially available to Dublin Airport’s mobile app users, the bespoke search tool will later be rolled out to desktop users.
“We are delighted to partner with Skyscanner using its travel insight tool so we can deliver a better product and service to our customers,” said John Hurley, head of channel and partner marketing at Dublin Airport.
“We have worked closely with Skyscanner to develop a one-stop shop on our Dublin Airport App and dublinairport.com for passengers who are looking for great destinations and travel options at excellent fares,” he said.
The tool was developed for the airport using an API from Skyscanner for Business, the travel search engine’s B2B unit offering a suite of products helping to power the travel internet.
Skyscanner’s data technology is being used by several aviation related businesses, including airlines Iberia Express and Flybe, and Edinburgh and Naples Airports.
