Singapore Airlines finally gets going on Twitter

Must say I was pretty amazed seeing Singapore Airlines tweet yesterday. Most of the big airlines have already realized the importance of twitter already and have hit the road in a big way (In my opinion Delta leads in this given that there responses are pretty quick and there are some other notable names that are doing a great job at this). I’ve always believed twitter to be an essential tool in the media strategy for the airlines rather than just simply being a platform for complaints and I hope they can put it to good use given that their website hasn’t been met with a great response and even after many months the issues still persist. They are a great airline but I guess they need to pick up on the customer connect a bit better than what they do right now. Singapore Air has been a late entrant in figuring out is social media strategy but finally seems to be getting its act together now.

  1. @SQ_USA is a country specific twitter channel and honestly speaking they hardly tweeted 50 odd times in these last two yrs. 🙂 @SingaporeAir is their generic channel for worldwide dealing, this is inline with the strategy other airlines follow to have major market specific channels and one generic channel.
    SQ now has a proper social media team setup which is actively managing the twitter and Facebook channels, although a late entrant among the airline giants. I hope that they keep up with this effort and connect much better with their passengers.
