How to optimize your passenger portal to generate more revenue

In the travel industry, convenience and efficiency reign supreme, that is why optimizing your inflight passenger portal is paramount to generating more revenue and fostering lasting customer relationships. In this blog, we'll explore key strategies and insights to enhance your IFEC portal, catering to the diverse needs and preferences of modern travelers.

Seamless and Simplified Experiences for Gen Z and Gen Y

The digital age has ushered in a new era of travelers – Gen Z and Gen Y – who crave seamless and simplified experiences. By meticulously simulating the digital journey based on customer preferences, we can identify existing gaps and elevate service quality.


These tech-savvy passengers rely heavily on their devices for entertainment, communication, and staying connected with the world. Airlines that recognize this trend and offer wireless inflight entertainment or inflight connectivity cater to the preferences of BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) travelers, enhancing their overall experience. By providing seamless access to a variety of digital content directly on passengers’ smartphones and tablets, airlines can meet the expectations of modern travelers and ensure a more enjoyable journey for all.


On a website, this can be achieved through intuitive user interfaces, personalized recommendations, A/B testing, and streamlined navigation, ensuring that users can easily find what they need with minimal effort. For example, always keep in mind the “three clicks rule” : any item in your inflight portal should be within 3-clicks navigation.

Similarly, on a mobile app, providing a seamless user experience involves optimizing for mobile devices, leveraging push notifications for relevant updates, and integrating features like one-click booking for added convenience. 


Thanks to the flexibility induced by wireless inflight entertainment or inflight connectivity, you can directly apply thoses strategies as your inflight portal can become a full digital touchpoint.

Solution booster - Connect your CRM

When integrating a CRM with an IFE system, it’s crucial to adapt based on the level of visitor identification. If CRM integration is not feasible, the IFE should emulate the behavior of a website catering to anonymous visitors, employing techniques like user segmentation and generalized personalization. 

Conversely, if CRM integration allows visitor identification, the IFE should take cues from mobile app strategies, focusing on individualized experiences, dynamic content delivery, and tailored recommendations based on known user profiles. This approach ensures that the IFE optimally engages passengers regardless of the level of visitor identification, enhancing their overall inflight experience.

Catering to Regional Preferences and Regulations

Understanding the diverse preferences and regulations across different regions is crucial for optimizing the passenger portal. Internet users in various regions may have distinct browsing habits and expectations, necessitating tailored user interface designs and navigation patterns. Moreover, compliance with local laws and regulations, such as those governing privacy and data protection, is essential to ensure a seamless and secure web-like experience for passengers worldwide.

Additionally, the IFE must be dynamic enough to adapt to the actual route of the plane, providing relevant content and services tailored to the journey’s specific destinations and passenger demographics.
