Dublin Airport has teamed up with Skyscanner to provide a suite of data technology services, which will enable the airport to benefit from unique insight into passengers’ planning and search preferences.
Skyscanner will provide Dublin Airport with a big dataset, through its Travel Insight tool, which taps into the global search data from its 50 million monthly visitors. Information analysed will help the airport develop its offering to further enhance its status as a major European hub.
Dublin Airport will also host Skyscanner’s flight search technology on its app, giving passengers the ability to search and book travel destinations with airlines operating from the hub. The bespoke search tool will also be rolled out to desktop users in the near future.
“We are delighted to partner with Skyscanner using its Travel Insight tool so we can deliver a better product and service to our customers,” said John Hurley, Dublin Airport’s Head of Channel and Partner Marketing.
“We have worked closely with Skyscanner to develop a one stop shop on our Dublin Airport app and dublinairport.com for passengers who are looking for great destinations and travel options at excellent fares. Skyscanner’s leadership in search technology is core to understanding what drives choice for passengers who wish to connect through Dublin Airport,” he added.
Hugh Aitken, Skyscanner’s Commercial Director, added: “We are delighted to be partnering with Dublin Airport to provide them with technology which will help them gain valuable market insight to inform and develop its status as a leading hub. Skyscanner is in a unique position to provide these insights given our significant and growing audience of users and data. Coupled with providing our API technology, we hope this will help passengers get the most of the gateway opportunities that Dublin can provide.”
