Travel disruption cost airlines and passengers tens of billions

Travel commerce platform Switchfly becomes the latest travel technology company offering to help airlines solve costly Irregular Operations (IROP) incidents by making passenger re-accommodation faster and easier.

In a new Travel Disruptions: Airline IROP Management report, Switchfly estimates the cost of IROP to airlines as at least $8.3 billion and the cost to passengers in lost time at $16.7 billion.

Can airlines speed up their adoption of new technology? And should they?

Douglas Gaccione, executive vice president, global growth and marketing at Switchfly says he sees some regions embracing change more readily than others, with a few willing to take risks on new digital technologies and others following quickly thereafter once the concept has proven successful.
