How Granify Increased an Airline’s Average Flight Booking by $23.39
When this international airline needed support raising the average order value for flights booked further out from the departure date, they came to Granify.
This international airline had a high load factor and knew that they could increase revenue by upselling add-ons for flights being booked more than six weeks in advance of the flight date.
They also knew that independently building a system to target influenceable travellers with the most compelling add-on would require a significant upfront investment of time and resources.
The airline implemented Granify’s Revenue Optimization Solution. Granify uses machine learning to predict how individual travellers will behave from second-to-second.
The Granify team worked with the airline to implement campaigns that were optimized to increase the probability of a customer booking a flight while maximizing their purchase size.
Granify implemented three key strategies, none of which relied on discount promotions:
Tailoring urgency messages for passengers browsing flights greater than six weeks out
Promoting seat upsells and bundles to interested shoppers
Suggesting relevant add-ons including meal purchases, seat selection, and luggage
The results during the first year of partnership were exceptional, with an average increase of $23.39 for each flight booked.
This increase was present across all passenger tiers:
A move in the flight direction
Increasing the average booking size for this group allowed the airline more time and flexibility to manage price and other adjustments for the remaining seats.

Our integration with third-party analytics providers gives our partners the ability to easily validate the results.
