Montgomery Regional Airport needed a Digital Marketing Strategy to combat Passenger Leakage.

In 2016, the Montgomery Regional Airport began working with Bell Media to develop a strategy aimed at reducing passenger leakage (an individual living in the Montgomery area who drives to a larger nearby airport to fly). Passenger leakage is a major problem for small and mid-sized regional airports who are within driving distance of major hubs. With the assistance of state-of-the-art technology, Bell Media developed a strategy that captured the mobile device ID of “leaked passengers” and served them messages to influence their decision making process.

Bell Media felt that in order to influence a frequent flyer who had “flying habits”, the airport must take an aggressive and disruptive marketing approach; reaching “in-market” consumers near the time of purchase while strategically delivering the airport’s value proposition to known “leakers”.

Bell Media developed, executed and optimized a successful strategy

After the first 6 months, the data suggested there were over 1,181 “leaked” customers who received an airport ad and chose to come back to the airport and fly out of Montgomery. The data generated from the campaign provided “walk-in attribution”, meaning Bell Media was able to report the number of “leaked” customers who physically flew out of Montgomery after seeing an airport ad.
