Online Bookings Soar with Data-Fueled Customer Journeys

Air Serbia is legacy carrier and it is the best airline in the Southeast Europe. In 2019 company flew almost 2.8 million passengers to 61 destinations in the world. In order to achieve even better results, a decision has been made – to keep a leading position and to further improve sales channels.

One of the strategic decisions is channel shift in terms of online sales, that became an important part of airline’s sales strategy.

GOAL – To attract even more online bookings

How to ensure better visibility of the entire portfolio of flights? For a well-established airline, that was a challenging task. In order to conquer it, Air Serbia adopted an innovative approach to improve an online sales funnel. Gaining social presence would be a challenge without highly personalized offers.

For Air Serbia, our goal was to develop a huge number of individual creative assets for each destination. They were localized and allocated to the appropriate parts of the customer journey with limited resources and strict requirements.

SOLUTION – Optimized Customer Journeys for potential flyers

Hunch’s mission was to show that we have a powerful tool that can increase Air Serbia’s campaign presence on social networks, that would grab audience attention, increase flight purchases and do so at a large scale.

In a collaborative effort, Hunch and Agency Drive used Hunch video production tools to produce high impact video post and story format ads. Each ad created unique user experiences for users exploring possible travel destinations whilst browsing Facebook and Instagram.

Once they had visited destination pages on the Air Serbia site, they were then retargeted, based on their site activity.

During the campaign, Hunch produced more than 1400 image ads and 120 video ads, which were fully automated at scale.

Hunch utilized Air Serbia’s unique designs to create Dynamic Image Templates that were A/B tested.
