About ForwardKeys

ForwardKeys analyses more than 17m flight booking transactions a day, drawing data from all the major global air reservation systems and selected airlines and tour operators. This information is enhanced with further independent data sets and applied data science to paint a picture of who is travelling where and when.

ForwardKeys analysis empowers parties to anticipate the impact of events, better understand the corridors travellers are using to reach their destination, manage upcoming traffic flows and to improve the ROI of marketing efforts by anticipating future market trends. Our analytics are used by traveller-focussed businesses worldwide to monitor and anticipate traveller arrivals from a particular origin market at a specific time.

Meet our team

ForwardKeys was founded in 2008 by Olivier Jager and Chris van Zwynsvoorde with the dream of building analytics services for the travel industry using air reservation data. They believed in the much needed importance of the human touch to give this “data” a voice and bring it alive.

With a clear vision, ForwardKeys have the guts to disrupt and the imagination to make the impossible possible. Integrity is close to our hearts, as it lives and breathes our reason for success; that of being trusted by our clients.
