MAKING TRAVEL INCLUSIVE FOR ALL

October 10, 2022

MAKING TRAVEL INCLUSIVE
Travel has probably crossed all of our minds at some point in the last few months. Holidays abroad, daytrips with the kids, or music festivals are all familiar summer experiences that require us to think about how we’ll get from A to B. But for disabled people, travelling anywhere is far from easy. For many, this summer has been one of renewed excitement and opportunity, with international travel being possible for the first time since the pandemic. Unfortunately, for people with disabilities, travel is all too often inaccessible, uncomfortable, and expensive. A recent survey found that two-thirds of the seven million Britons with limited mobility avoid flying altogether because it is so difficult.

Hospitality is an extremely challenging environment for designing and deploying Wi-Fi networks. The client device population of the guests literally changes on a nightly basis, so there is a constant barrage of new and unknown devices that are using the network. It is also quite common for guests to have multiple client devices (i.e., laptops, tablets, and smartphones) connected simultaneously, and to use their own devices for entertainment, such as streaming media from Netflix or Amazon Prime. Guests expect the same level of experience that they are used to at home

The vendors’ view on the transition to a world of Offers and Orders

whitePaper | October 13, 2022

Based on present trends, we believe it will be possible for some airlines and their partners to see a world of 100% Offers and Orders by 2030. This means that full capabilities, based on global open standards and a modular architecture, need to be ready and available for any airline that wishes to embark on this journey. In partnership with key industry players, IATA has published a vision of a world with 100% Offers and Orders. The New Distribution Capability (NDC) has been a catalyst in this journey to airline retailing. However, many implementations sell rely on legacy artefacts such as filed fares, booking classes, PNRs and E-Tickets/EMDs. Vendors are developing retailing plaƞorms in this context, however, so far, none of them propose a completely legacy-free environment with Offers and Orders only.

7 KEY DIGITAL DRIVERS OF THE TRAVEL & LEISURE INDUSTRY

whitePaper | February 10, 2020

In recent years, there have been remarkable breakthroughs in technology which have led to exciting advancements in the way travel and leisure operators conduct business and attract new consumers. It’s been a period of discovery, with operators finding that the strategies that worked in the past, don’t work now. As the recent fate of Thomas Cook shows, there has been casualties as a result. Technology developments are showing no sign of slowing down, as innovation races to keep up with consumer’s expectations. While some brands have already adopted experience apps and slick social media campaigns, others are still in the discovery stage; soaking in insight while incrementally applying updates to their business model.

Generation Z, the first digitally native generation, is quickly moving into the prime purchasing position.

whitePaper | April 14, 2022

As a marketer, if you are strategizing ways to both differentiate yourself from the competition while also forging better, stronger bonds with your existing customers, personalization should be on your radar. In many ways, digital personalization represents the ultimate experience goal for most organizations — allowing them to fully customize an individual's experience rather than trying to fit all potential customers into a "one size fits all" box that doesn't really exist anymore.
