ANA – Flight Connections

Turning online connections
into in-person meetings

— CASE STUDY —

How we

did it?

ANA’s expansive global network covers the top business destinations across Asia, North America and Europe. We concepted and created the ANA Flight Connections experience to highlight the airline’s ability to connect business travelers to a vast number of destination cities.

We started with the insight that today’s modern business traveler has LinkedIn connections all over the world—many of whom they’ve never physically met before. To bridge this gap, we created a way for ANA to help potential passengers turn their online connections into in-person meetings.

The platform uses LinkedIn to visualize users’ social networks on a WebGL-powered globe. Flight paths between ANA destination cities are then overlaid onto the globe, showing how the airline can connect people with their faraway connections. Users can also gain more insight into how to physically reach their LinkedIn networks via a dashboard that visualizes connections across numerous metrics. Visitors can even enter to win a free round-trip flight to one of ANA’s many Asian destinations.
