Airlines playing matchmaker

May 16th, 2017

Tags:

In-flight networking has declined the past few years with many business travellers opting to put on their noise cancelling headphones and look straight ahead or bury themselves in a book or the laptop to avoid conversation.  But it appears US-based carrier Delta is looking to shake things up.

 

 

The airline recently announced its ‘Innovation Class’ that ultimately plays matchmaker with its business travellers.  Those applicants accepted into the Innovation Class have the chance to be seated with other visionaries and industry leaders.

This kind of concept isn’t new.  KLM have been running a Meet & Seat program for some time giving travellers the option to share their social media details with fellow passengers.

But if your airline isn’t providing this kind of solution never fear, there’s an app for that.  Networking app Here on Biz uses Linkedin to facilitate airport meet ups for like-minded travellers that have a little spare time.

The network effect

At Airly we encourage networking, should it interest you.  On board our eight seat private jets you’ll travel with like-minded professionals and industry leaders who hold vast networks and contacts that may help you land your next deal.  This is also evidenced by Surf Air, who have reported of business deals taking place on board their aircraft.

Are you a in-flight networker?  If so, what are your tips for making a great impression?  Let us know on Facebook or Twitter.

For decades the travel industry has seen dormant gloabl companies refrain from innovation.  Budgets and short-term goals were put ahead of innovation, perhaps a case of ‘if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it’. However with growing technology advancements and a changing consumer mindset new companies have been able to challenge the status […]
