Our multicultural team includes over 20 different nationalities and between us we have worked on forecasts for over 100 airports around the world, including the largest international airports seeking to develop capacity for over 180 million passengers per annum. Our forecasts include work for the Abu Dhabi Ministry of Transport, Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore (CAAS), Japanese Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism (MLIT), as well as airports such as Delhi, Istanbul, Heathrow, six Colombian airports (inc. Medellin), the 12 primary airports in Indonesia (inc Jakarta), and all three primary South African Airports.
Understanding all elements
Our multinational team of experts work on a range of projects, from traffic forecasting to route development, airline operations and network/fleet development, for clients such as South African Airways (SAA) and government regulation bodies. We also work as expert witnesses in legal cases. Our strong track record gives us a comprehensive understanding of the many aspects of air transport that impacts on all of the aviation work that we do.
Delivering increased traffic to airports
Traffic growth forecasts are unlikely to be met without dynamic route development. We can assist airports by producing marketing and route development plans, conducting specific route development studies or meeting with airlines directly. Our team includes senior analysts from IATA and the former commercial director of BMI regional, as such we have worked directly within the commercial departments of airlines and know the dynamics of route selection from their perspective.
Our work informs at the highest level
We have advised governments on aviation matters in markets as diverse as Indonesia, Japan, South Africa, the United Arab Emirates and the United Kingdom. In Indonesia we were appointed to assess the implications of the future ASEAN Open Sky Policy on Indonesian Aviation. These included key areas such as airline readiness, airport and airspace infrastructure requirements and an appropriate regulatory and legal framework. The project ultimately informed the Indonesian DGCA and provided a 'road map' for Indonesia to follow in the years running up to full open skies implementation in ASEAN.
Helping our clients be successful
We have been the traffic advisor to the successful bidder for numerous airport concession and privatisation contests, most recently at airports as diverse as Ankara, Istanbul and Izmir in Turkey, Madinah in Saudi Arabia (winner of 2012 Middle East and Africa Infrastructure Deal of the Year), San Juan in Puerto Rico (the first major airport under the FAA's Pilot Privatization Program and Project Finance Magazine's 2013 North American Transport Deal of the year) and Zagreb in Croatia (2013 European Airport Deal of the Year).
