  • So what’s going on!
    A Martian landed on Planet Earth and was asked to summarize what was going on in the travel industry.
    The conclusion made was that the travel industry was in a total state of disarray.
    • Fuel prices were escalating compromising airline capacity and revenue projections.
    • Civil unrest in certain regions of the planet was negatively impacting tourism.
    • Natural disasters were taking their toll on specific points of origin or destination.
    • Supply Chain Stakeholders were in legal battles over content obligations.
    • The world’s most dominant force in travel search looks to take its place in the chain.
    If you are new to the travel industry or from another planet it is easy to understand why you would conclude that our industry is in serious trouble.
     
    However if you have been around for a few years or more you have to ask yourself the question………………..
  • So what else is new?
    Travel Suppliers are re-inventing the retail experience for customers, maximizing the opportunity to merchandise core and ancillary products across all channels.
    “The average student has instant access to more information today than did every president in the past 15 years. There is a meritocracy of information and the best ideas, best values, best products and best services will win.”
    Miles Nadal, Chairman and CEO of MDC Partners
    (9th largest advertising firm in the world)
    Sensible you might think, yet many find it irksome…..
  • Irksome…Why?
    To read today’s trade media and travel industry blogs the one issue that is consistently being debated and reported on is American Airline’s direct connect strategy.
    Some well meaning industry experts are advocating a total disruption to the supplier come travel agent model while others are questioning AA’s motivation to take on such a bold strategy.
    With all due respect to American Airlines there is nothing new about their strategy. Direct connect has been around for over 5 years, and for those who only now are crying foul AA did announce in 2009 that they had been studying the model for over 3 years.
    The airlines have always had a direct channel relationship with its customers usually accounting for 25-35% of their business. The LCC model has changed that and for some carriers direct sales are over 60% of their business
  • So what now?
    Travel suppliers, (car,cruise,hotel,airlines) understand the need to enhance their retailing expertise to maintain market share in an increasingly competitive market.
    Direct Connect allows them to extend their merchandizing practice to key distribution partners (travel agents, OTA, etc) on equal terms!
    Too many stakeholders have vested interests in maintain the status quo. The battle has commenced and will continue….
    Great supply chains are agile, adaptable, and aligned provide you the Supplier with sustainable competitive advantage.
    It’s a simple formulation: getting the right product to the right place at the right time—all the time.
    • Where the supply chain is a “sales disabler” – STOP!
    • Where the channel brings value – GO!
  • So what’s the BIG Idea for Travel Retail
    MERCHANDIZE your Product
    Value; Demand and Profit!
    ALL Channels lead to a CUSTOMER!
    Listen to your CUSTOMER!
    Get the Stakeholders to the TABLE
    ALIGN; ADAPT & INNOVATE
