Should airlines become OTAs? Should they become digital companies? Should they be investing even more in digital and UX? If the answer is yes, then how should they do it? In this session, Iztok Franko from Diggintravel will present key insights, data, and examples from his 3 years of digital research and more than 100 surveyed airlines.
