Inflight Retail

Driving engagement and revenue growth on-board

We understand retailing isn’t about short-term sales growth. In a post COVID-19 world, digital technologies are driving change in consumer transactional behaviour, creating opportunities for airlines to know their customers better, create deeper, lasting relationships and building broader brand loyalty.

An effective inflight retail programme is a critical cog in an airline’s brand story. Passengers place immense weight on the quality of their inflight experience. Our solutions ensure success across the whole value chain, from product strategy to crew engagement and customer loyalty.
