Facebook has introduced a new advertising feature, Flight Ads. This feature allows airlines to send targeted ads to people who have searched for flights on the internet. For airlines and travel companies, Flight Ads are a great runway for generating more profit.
With Facebook’s Flight Ads feature airlines can target people that have visited flight-related Pages, websites and apps. Now, airlines can reach more people who are interested in travel.
Read this quote from directly from Facebook to get a glimpse of this powerful feature:
“For example, let’s say people are looking at holiday trips to Mexico by browsing several airline sites and flight pricing apps. Airline brands can now use Flight Ads to reach those people with tailored ads promoting relevant flight routes. In addition, travelers that visit a travel-related Facebook Page, but have not yet chosen a trip destination may see an ad to visit an airline brand’s site.”
