The traffic forecast serves as an important quantitative basis for airport planning – in particular for capacity planning, CAPEX as well as for aeronautical and non-aeronautical revenue planning.
Our traffic forecasts go far beyond mere GDP and IATA forecasts. We take a close look at macroeconomics, the local demand, the catchment area, and the airport’s strategy. Besides that, we analyse the realistic upside potential and any add-on traffic.
The driving factors for the development of air traffic are first, the passenger volumes, and second, the air cargo and airmail volumes. All other projections rely on these – either directly or indirectly.
