Expert forecasts let you be the expert in your business
Changing political and economic factors in today’s economy transform the future of air passenger traffic. Keeping on top of the constantly changing environment and the impact that can have on your business can be challenging and time-consuming. We help clients understand how air passenger traffic will evolve and how current political and economic trends can positively or adversely affect growth rates. Air Passenger Forecast service (APF) was jointly created by Tourism Economics, an Oxford Economics company, and the International Air Transport Association (IATA) to provide long-term forecasts of air passenger flows. This includes coverage of total domestic and international flows for 183 countries and almost 4,000 important country-pair routes. Alternative forecast scenarios are included, based on different assumptions for the fundamental economic drivers of air travel demand, providing valuable input for your long-term strategic decision-making.
