basic source attribution, allowing the property owner to control messaging about their location. Tourist
destinations are likely subscribers to this type of passive advertising.”
Jean says that from the traffic pattern and behaviour analysis they do on a sample basis, it’s clear the promotion
for the destination to which a flight is bound is the most responsive. PXCom also claims moving maps have become the second most popular form of in­flight entertainment, after
watching in­flight films and television. According to Betria Interactive, passengers on a six hour flight spend an
average of one hour and twenty eight minutes viewing the moving map, opening an average of 95 PXPoints. “Providing a combined entertainment and relevant information delivery platform provides the perfect medium to
engage the passenger for extended periods of time,” states Jean. “This is an extremely valuable audience for a
sponsor to message to and at the most opportune time when the passenger is the most receptive to, and in
need of, the value of that message. It is one of those rare times when it is a real win­win­win for passenger,
airline and advertiser.”
How will the moving map system evolve in the future? Jean predicts, “As PXCom, and our innovative partners
like the FlightPath3D team, work more closely with airlines to build up their ancillary revenue models, we will
begin to work toward integrating with their customer loyalty programs to potentially tailor experiences to the
passengers expressed interests. The objective is to make the experience as relevant as possible to all parties.
“For the moment, only Betria's FlightPath 3D offers such interactivity level. However, technology evolution will
hopefully make this model of connecting to passengers ubiquitous regardless of the airline, region, advertiser
and technology product vendor.” Back to News
