Diggintravel is your best resource for ecommerce and digital benchmarks. For the fourth straight year, Diggintravel conducted an airline survey to understand airline digital maturity when it comes to various parts of digital optimization: digital team setup, digital optimization skills, user and UX research activities, digital analytics, experimentation & A/B testing, digital optimization tools, internet booking engine flexibility and organizational support for digital optimization.
Below you can find links to our previous yearly reports and more info about the state of airline digital optimization in 2022 – the 2022 Airline Digital Optimization Yearbook.
The Diggintravel 2022 Airline Digital Optimization Survey is the fourth survey and benchmark of digital optimization in the airline industry.
Going into the fourth year of our evaluation, this survey will provide you the overview and evolution of this exciting ecommerce discipline. This survey certainly won’t be the last, as Diggintravel will continue following digital optimization developments and airline ecommerce trends. Every year, the survey has evolved as we continue to develop our maturity model and our digital optimization questionnaire. The 2022 survey is especially important since we wanted to evaluate and measure the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on airline digital teams and optimization practices.
The survey investigates the maturity of digital optimization processes and key challenges airline professionals face in their digital and conversion optimization efforts.
During the last quarter of 2021, our survey questionnaire was sent to more than 100 senior airline ecommerce, digital optimization and digital marketing executives.
The survey represents the views and insights of 52 carriers (a 6% increase from last year’s turnout, where 49 airlines participated). The survey will provide you with intriguing insights into the state and development of digital optimization for the airline industry.
The goal of the survey was to evaluate digital optimization maturity within airline organizations. For evaluation of maturity, we evaluated several digital optimization maturity models and revised last year’s Diggintravel Airline Digital Optimization Maturity Model.
The new and revised Diggintravel Airline Digital Optimization Maturity Model consists of 8 areas:
You can see the exact questions and results for each area in the special section at the end of the Yearbook PDF report. Each area was ranked from Level 1 (basic) to Level 5 (most advanced). We also added new questions to evaluate the maturity of the digital optimization processes in addition to the 8 questions by area. These were the new questions added to the questionnaire:
Since personalization is a hot topic and we believe it is closely connected to digital optimization and CRO (conversion optimization), we evaluated whether airlines are combining conversion rate optimization and personalization activities and what kind of personalization engines they’re using.
Based on the revised Diggintravel Airline Digital Optimization Maturity Model and survey results by each area, we classified each participating airline into one of the following four categories:
Laggards, Challengers, Visionaries, Leaders
We grouped our 8 maturity model areas into two major groups:
Based on the results, we classified each participating airline into one of the following four categories: Laggards, Challengers, Visionaries, and Leaders.
According to our benchmark, we detected:
The graph above shows how these categories correlate with the size and type of airline.
