Tip Tuesday for March

As you prepare for Spring Break mayhem, it’s important to keep in mind that working smarter, not harder, ideally with the staff you already have should be the goal. One thing that will allow you to leverage said staffing is to make sure your tech strategies are up-to-date and ready to greet your springtime journeymen and women. Here are a few ways to do that:

Predictive Demand Planning:

  • Break out those data stores and analyze past peak travel times to ensure you and your employees are briefed and ready to go with ample warning that the day might be full of a bit more chaos than usual.
  • This can also help you anticipate travel trends that could inform intuitive pricing strategies to ensure peak profits to match peak destinations.

Chatbots for Customer Service:

  • More travel means more customers who might need help- especially since Spring Break means those once or twice-a-year vacationers who aren’t as familiar with all things airport as your business travelers. Instead of hiring excess manpower (that would be needed for a month at the longest) consider chatbots who can help with routine questions (think baggage policies, flight details, gate info) and free up your people to help with the more complex issues.

Predictive Maintenance:

  • Make sure your planes are ready to deal with the hordes of break-bound vacationers by making sure your fleet is ready to go. Predictive maintenance can help you identify potential issues faster- before they become a glaring problem that would prevent a plane from getting into the air.

Augmented Reality (AR) for Wayfinding:

  • Help your passengers navigate the airport like never before with AR applications- provide real-time guidance despite the increased masses and help your customers find food, gates, etc faster and arrive on board full and happy instead of starving and half-lost.

Enhanced Crew Scheduling:

  • Implement new and better reserve analysis to anticipate demand and potential disruptions. This is especially important during a time when sick calls are higher than usual, while flight schedules are busier.

We hope these points help you conquer the Spring Break rush and provide opportunities for you and your team to grow your bottom line. And we’d be remiss if we didn’t mention that we at ELP are ready to provide a wide array of cutting-edge tech that is here to help you better anticipate and enhance your airline’s procedures, during busy times and all the time.
