Airlines are at a critical crossroads. They need to boost revenue in the face of rising fuel prices, staffing challenges, and other disruptions, but in order to chart a path toward increased profitability, they also need to invest in modern retailing that can meet evolving traveler needs.

In this panel discussion, industry leaders from Sabre, Travel in Motion, and Oman Air joined Skift for a discussion about the best way to recalibrate conventional retailing around a traveler-centric model.

While the NDC-enabled transformation toward offer- and order-based retailing is driving innovation that can help meet expectations for greater flexibility, increased personalization, and more convenient payment options, it can also pose short-term challenges that require careful navigation.

The transformation won’t happen overnight and airlines will need to make difficult decisions, but the path from discovery to action must start somewhere. Prepare now to ensure transition readiness.

In this webinar:

  • Why airlines need to move beyond traditional systems and processes and embrace partners that can improve their tech stack and open new possibilities
  • Why meeting traveler expectations requires transforming not only the technology powering retailing but also the organizational culture behind it to offer more flexibility
  • How to create a readiness checklist to ensure a smooth transition to a modern retailing future, along with the pros and cons of various paths
