What is airline disruption management?
Airline disruption management involves providing customers with real-time updates on cancellations and delays in their flight schedule and enabling them to rebook or get a refund on their tickets during flight disruptions either on their own or by interacting with a customer support representative or chatbot.
What is the financial cost of disruptions to an airline?
According to a study by T2RL, disruptions cost the travel industry roughly $35 billion every year. Apart from the hard cost,’ which is paid to the customers for flight cancellations, airlines also must bear a ‘soft cost’ that is the amount the airline will lose in the future owing to a lessening in customer loyalty and trust. Further, there is also the issue of the support staff becoming unproductive in the absence of efficient airline disruption management software.
Will flight disruptions cause airlines to be overwhelmed as the number of passengers increase?
It is said that by 2035, the number of people who take an airline for their travel needs will double. This is a steep increase from the roughly 3.7 billion passengers who use the mode of transport. Also, it is said that the Asia-Pacific region will give rise to half the passengers who use airlines in the next twenty years. Presently, twenty per cent of flights are delayed, and the effects of disruption are already adverse. When the number of flight users increases, there are bound to be even bigger consequences for disruption.
What happens to an airlines’ reputation when it cannot deal effectively with disruptions?
Social media has become the most preferred location for frustrated customers to vent their unhappiness about various airlines that either had overbooked or canceled flights. A case in point is the fact that United Airlines received a ton of bad publicity due to their attitude towards the passengers of an overbooked flight. Notably, they were the most-talked-about airline between June 11- July 9, 2017, proving how essential proper airline disruption management is.
How to be more passenger-centric during an airline disruption?
Although there are a lot of complications that an airline must deal with during a flight disruption, it would serve them well to prioritize their customers for the reasons mentioned above. Most customers expect prompt updates about delays or cancellations and failing to do this will lead them to leave bad reviews all through the internet.
What are the various means of providing stress-free customer support during disruptions?
Even in this digital age, many airlines use social media only for promotion. They spam customers incessantly with news of discounts and new destinations that they cover. However, what they are missing is the potency that social media has for effective disruption management for airlines. With the right strategy, companies can leverage social media to inform customers about irregular operations promptly.
In the travel industry, chatbots are already a rage. Travel firms have already started answering customer queries via Facebook Messenger and other social media platforms where chatbots are enabling them to respond promptly to the customer after automatically going through their details.
Another way to empower customers through real-time and personalized notifications is through SMS. Real-time alerts can be sent to customers about severe delays, which will stop the customers from arriving at the airport too early.
