Google Tag Manager (GTM) for Desktop and Mobile

The first step is to implement a GTM container on every page of the website and app. The implementation is the same for mobile apps and tablet apps, if the airline has different ones. GTM is free and offers simple, yet powerful, tag management from an online platform allowing to add and manage tags (such as Analytics page view or AdWords conversion tracking tags) via the Tag Manager user interface. For mobile, tags can be implemented without having to rebuild and resubmit application binaries to app marketplaces which is a huge advantage.
