Travelers worldwide have embraced the convenience and necessity of being connected at every step of their journey. It has given them more control in booking, check-in and boarding, reducing their dependence on airline and airport staff. Indeed, the passenger experience is no longer reliant on great services from airline staff. Therefore, airlines must differentiate their services across all channels – in the air and on the ground – to enhance their reputation and attractiveness to travelers.
