The Travel Strategist Adds TweetAFlight Economy℠ Service

New Semi-Automatic Process Provides Ease of Integration & Lower Cost of Entry

Online PR News – 19-May-2012 – New York, New York – The Travel Strategist, a social media consulting firm for the airline, aerospace and travel industries, today announced the availability of TweetAFlight Economy, a new version of the managed e-commerce solution developed by Steven Frischling that leverages an innovative social media strategy to monetize Twitter followers. The TweetAFlight Economy solution transforms the real-time reach of Twitter into a semi-automated sales channel for airlines, travel companies and travel agents.

TweetAFlight leverages the power of Chirpify (www.chirpify.com) and PayPal (www.paypal.com) to transform Twitter from a broadcast social media platform into a transactional one by removing all frictions of a traditional payments or e-commerce system. As an example, an airline tweets a TweetAFlight tweet “Last Minute Instant Deal – $99 r/t #NYC to #Miami this weekend! Reply “BUY” to buy! #travel #deal.” An interested follower of the airline, or someone following the embedded hashtags, simply replies “BUY” to the TweetAFlight tweet and the seat is sold, the passenger data is transmitted to the airline ticket system, and the payment instantly processed via PayPal.

TweetAFlight Economy, however, relies on traditional ticketing methods rather than the integrated automation associated with the full “First Class” service outlined above. The semi-automated Economy service provides ease of integration with current ticketing processes at a lower cost of entry.

Airlines and travel companies interested in learning more about the TweetAFlight solution may email travel@thetravelstrategist.com, call +1(646)530-8327 or +44(0)7092 384045, tweet @flyingwithfish, click www.tweetaflight.com or visit www.facebook.com/tweetaflight for additional information.
