Data technology services are to be supplied by Skyscanner to Dublin airport.
The travel search engine will provide the airport with data via its travel insight tool which taps into global search data from its 50 million monthly visitors.
This will enable the airport to gain an insight into passengers’ planning and search preferences.
The Irish airport will also host Skyscanner’s flight search technology on its app, giving passengers the ability to search and book travel destinations with airlines operating from the hub.
Initially available to Dublin airport’s mobile app users, the bespoke search tool will also offer access to desktop users.
The tool was developed for Dublin Airport using an API from Skyscanner for Business.
Airport head of channel and partner marketing, John Hurley, said: “We have worked closely with Skyscanner to develop a one stop shop on our Dublin airport app and dublinairport.com for passengers who are looking for great destinations and travel options at excellent fares.
“Skyscanner’s leadership in search technology is core to understanding what drives choice for passengers who wish to connect to through Dublin airport.”
Skyscanner commercial director, Hugh Aitken, added: “Skyscanner is in a unique position to provide these insights given our significant and growing audience of users and data. Coupled with providing our API technology, we hope this will help passengers get the most of the gateway opportunities that Dublin can provide”.
