Carriers around the world are adopting responsive airline sites for their relaunches, a trend clear from the projects that went live in 2015. Small carriers are leading the innovation, with California-based Virgin America among the first to go responsive, and to roll out a single page app across all devices.
As of August 2015, the three largest airlines to have adopted responsive design are:
- Dutch flag carrier KLM (27m passengers in 2014), using a jQuery-based single page application
- Norwegian, Scandinavia’s low-cost leader, carried 24m passengers in 2014 – their direct online sales flow through a responsive AngularJS single page application
- Swiss, with 17m passengers in 2014, is as of writing the only carrier in Lufthansa Group to have gone responsive.
