This one of a kind research on 75 pages dives into the most important questions on how Airlines around the world are using SEO to acquire customers.

It looks into all the important aspects of modern Search Engine Optimization.

We analyzed 22 different airlines from all around the world, big and small. The websites are analyzed using industry-standard tools (SemRush, ahrefs, Screaming frog) as well as manually, looking at how the selected websites perform in SEO.

We looked into the technical errors, on-site optimization, and all the different aspects of off-site optimization, as well as the content that is shown on different websites.

Reviews of the research

About the author Peter Mesarec

I’ve been the head of SEO in the largest regional digital agency and have helped different airlines and travel agenciesOTAs, and meta searchers to extend their understanding of SEO for their websites.

I’m working as a consultant and am helping different companies (from startups to billion EUR companies) to educate their internal teams in SEO and marketing. 

I have congested all my SEO and marketing knowledge into this research so that this is the most detailed (and the only) view into everything important in SEO for airlines and similar companies. 

I’ve been featured in multiple industry magazines and I’ve been selected as the best speaker at different international conferences.

We should talk.
