Virtual Interlining for airports
Discover what Virtual Interlining can do for you
Virtual Interlining holds many benefits for airports, not just increased traffic. Through our Hosted Stopover Program, we can work with your team in a variety of ways to achieve these benefits.
Virtual Interlining connects carriers who do not normally cooperate, significantly reducing the cost and hassle of multi-segment journeys for the passenger. We started by Virtually Interlining low-cost content, expanded this to include full-service, then to ground transport, and now to include different airline classes.
That has the ability to make every airport a hub, wherever it is located, rather than an endpoint.
How Kiwi.com works with airports
Many airports are not set up to ease a self-connecting passenger’s journey. Often the traveler will need to collect any baggage they are carrying, exit the airport, check-in, and pass through security again.
This is not the perfect self-transfer scenario for the passenger or the airport. That’s why we have developed a number of solutions to help with these issues, including our Hosted Stopover Program and Minimum Connection Time (MCT) optimization. These solutions allow the passenger to relax and shop, rather than spending their whole layover in queues.
Assess travelers’ intent and demand
We have also gathered myriads of data to help airports understand their passenger flows, and present it within our Airport Dashboard in Tequila, our B2B portal. The Dashboard allows your team to assess the scale of passengers searching and traveling to, from, and through your airport using Virtual Interlining.
This allows your team to use these indicators of intent and demand to identify new routes that had been previously hidden from view. It may be that there are many passengers using Virtual Interlining to travel to another destination than you had thought.
