Monthly Traffic Statistics
Make better aviation industry decisions
Your decision-making processes require precise knowledge of actual airline traffic data , updated on a regular basis, so you can benchmark, plot trends, and plan with accuracy. Collecting and compiling the data you need, removing duplicates and reconciling different viewpoints is a cumbersome process that yields variable results. You need consistent, clean, airline-level information.
Providing the reports and management information your organization needs to plan, convince, and choose strategic directions, depends on having detailed, accurate traffic statistics over the long term, that you can analyze and pull together in numerous ways. Percentage changes only inform at a given moment in time. Scheduled capacity only tells you what might have been. With disparate sources of data that evolve over time, trends can become distorted, and models may no longer apply. Monthly Traffic Statistics provides you with a realistic picture of air traffic, from market overview to regional and airline level, collected directly from airlines.
