Southampton Airport is a regional airport on the south coast of England with flights to around 40 destinations in mainland Europe, the UK and Channel Islands with worldwide connections. This is a rich catchment area, with 3.5m people within one hour’s travel distance of the Airport. There is easy access to central London, with regular direct trains reaching London Waterloo in just 66 minutes, and 19% of all passengers are business travellers. Southampton Airport offers a "breeze through" experience - making the journey easy, fast and friendly.
Southampton Airport wanted to offer its passengers a truly joined up digital experience. Using the very latest technology available, it aspired to present an e-commerce environment that would be intuitive, easy-to-use and would offer simple transaction facility. This would provide scope to add unlimited products and services outside of the traditional aeronautical revenues.
Southampton also planned to optimise customer interaction by developing its digital communication strategy, building stronger relationships that would maximise earning potential.
Southampton Airport chose to migrate away from a legacy parking reservation platform to Rezcomm’s e-commerce solution. This enabled the airport to offer a more relevant and customer-tailored service. It has also opened up new revenue earning opportunities across a multitude of products and services. The result is that Southampton has seen revenues increase significantly.
Southampton has achieved impressive results by leveraging the functionality across the full suite of Rezcomm solutions. It now has access to rich customer data that informs its digital strategies. Using the extensive digital engagement tools available in the solutions, the Airport has seen increases in per-passenger spend and market share.
