Using airline fare and profit data to maintain and improve aeronautical revenue streams

This session is aimed at airport managers and centers around how airline performance data can be used to increase revenues and profit

Many airports don't have access to reliable airline performance data limiting their knowledge of airline customers, RDC can provide this data through its Apex platform

Real airline/airport case studies will be discussed highlighting how the data can be used to pinpoint strengths and weaknesses in airline performance

There will be examples of airports with underperforming airline networks, understanding this data gives an airport an opportunity to provide additional support in order to maintain services

There will be other examples of overperforming networks where an appreciation of this data would bring the opportunity to withdraw support, increase charges etc.

And finally, airport marketing will be covered in terms of including positive airline performance data for presentations to target airlines

How to Estimate a New Route Potential

By 2030, passenger numbers will double to reach 4 billions leading to huge opportunities, but not without risk. The recent airline bankruptcies demonstrate that growth without profit margin is not an option. As competition grows fiercer, so are the analytical tools to help "seal the deals", and technology now allows to marry industry best practices with thorough analytics. If are serious about route development, join us to understand how you can estimate market recapture and demand stimulation, to open up a world of opportunities
