“ForwardKeys has been a game changer for us. We are suddenly able to pitch for routes with small indirect market sizes (Transavia will start RTM-EDI in S20) and will be able to suggest to airline itineraries for the optimum day of the week and optimum time of the day based on actual customer demand. This allowed us to secure an additional Bergen rotation.”

Pavel HalasAviation Development Manager, Edinburgh Airport

"Flight Search is a wonderful tool giving quantitative insights for markets with no or limited volume of O&D. We were able to identify where people living in Montpellier and around want to go. This information was key and helped us orient our studies on Transavia France base project which at the end become reality. As from April 2020, Transavia France will make Montpellier its 4th base in France with 2 based aircrafts, flying up to 20 destinations. ForwardKeys solution also allows us to consolidate our data for other airline partners.”

"Despite the recent water security challenge we faced, the temporary nature of this event was successfully averted through collaboration and common goodwill between citizens, government, business and tourists. Our refreshed focus on retaining our reputation as a world-class destination meant the need to do things differently and asking the right questions in order to find the right solutions. Data, insights and analytics from ForwardKeys have proven a valuable resource in reshaping our strategies in making up for lost tourism numbers. This study has proved essential in looking at the impact of natural disasters from a different perspective."
