Airline Brand Partnerships
To meet the demands from increasingly demanding and savvy passengers, airlines are recognizing that instead of developing elements of services themselves, it is easier to team up with well-known brands who stand for quality in a specific field. Although branded amenities aren’t a new feature onboard airlines – think amenity kits – the number of brand partnerships in recent years has expanded to other parts of the passenger experience. Recent examples include Delta x Westin, Finnair x Marimekko and JAL x Kentucky Fried Chicken.

Co-branding initiatives can also be an economical way to provide a service or even an additional source of income for airlines. This new report, published twice a year, contains the most innovative airline – brand
partnerships at airports, IFE&C, onboard amenities, inflight catering, and more.

Connected Cabin Crew

As connected cabin crew are expected to become a critical part of airline operations, this report gives an in-depth analysis of the latest initiatives, initial results and 3rd party solutions.
