Where they were

A lot has changed for Harbour Air since they first began flying in 1982. From the company’s origins from two aircraft to what is now the world’s largest fleet of seaplanes that fly over 500,000 passengers a year, Harbour Air has achieved many accomplishments along its path to success.

But the growth of passenger demand has also brought about increased competition. Other rival airplane and helijet companies are also seeking their share of the market. When customers are ready to book a flight they need immediate attention and validation of their reservation. Harbour Air saw the need to secure their standing as B.C.’s premiere seaplane flight service.

Where they are

Online booking is a vital component of Harbour Air’s acquisition strategy. Maintaining a strong marketing presence in a competitive landscape is absolutely a necessity for the company to retain its marketshare. Advertising in the online spaces where Harbour Air’s audience is looking for the company’s services was another critical component of the overall marketing strategy.

For a mature brand like Harbour Air seeking the business of new customers and be front-of-mind to a business and travel audience, the challenge is a tall one indeed. But when the pandemic of 2020 hit the world, it had a sizeable impact on the number of bookings Harbour Air saw.

They needed a new plan from Snaptech.
