On a mission to predict travellers’ impact

ForwardKeys is a travel intelligence leader — founded in 2010 on the simple principle that businesses dependent on international and domestic air travel can make better strategic decisions if they know who is travelling where, when, how, and for how long — now, and in the future. 

To provide those crucial insights to our customers, we developed the most comprehensive database of air travellers and visitors in the industry, offering detailed information on passenger travel itineraries, advanced profiles and behaviour patterns and preferences at their destination. 

Our suite of market-leading solutions and Data Smarts are designed to facilitate easy access to this data for a range of users, from research analysts and data scientists to marketing, brand and product teams.  

We serve numerous sectors including destination management organisations, media, travel retail, car rental, hospitality, finance and pharmaceuticals and continue to grow and innovate to meet the developing needs of the 200+ brands we work with.  

Our team of travel data experts

Since its foundation, ForwardKeys has established itself as the industry reference for global travel trends and insights.

As the industry evolves – a process that has been accelerated by the Covid-19 pandemic – the ability for travel-related businesses to make informed decisions based on live, reliable data becomes increasingly important. Accordingly, ForwardKeys constantly develops its products to serve the changing needs of its clients and deliver the specific insights that they – and the industry as a whole – are seeking.

To support this mission, ForwardKeys’ data scientists dedicate themselves to building and refining data models using artificial intelligence and machine learning; the IT department focus on developing products that provide a relevant service to the market; and the Insights team work closely with clients to ensure they understand the data and can glean the most valuable insights from it. In addition, several ForwardKeys employees are expert speakers, frequently sharing their knowledge and unique insights with global audiences at industry events.
