The leading provider of comprehensive travel data

Founded in 2010, ForwardKeys provides an invaluable service to tourism organisations, hotels and retailers keen on understanding who is travelling where, when and for how long. The company is able to share such insight thanks to its comprehensive access to global ticketing data from online bookings, travel agencies and airlines.

Part of what sets ForwardKeys apart is its extensive and varied portfolio of products and datasets, which allows clients to retrieve the data they need in a way that suits them. Aside from ticketing data, ForwardKeys datasets reflect airline capacity, air fares and even the overall market based on a proprietary algorithm. These datasets are accessed via one or more products, each being geared towards a different level of data literacy and covering a separate segment of the market.

ForwardKeys’ strategic information and exclusive insights therefore benefit any organisations whose business depends on travel – including airports, duty-free operators, tax refund services, car hire companies and more.

Our team of travel data experts

Since its foundation in 2010, ForwardKeys has made a name for itself as the industry reference for monitoring, analysing and anticipating travel flows and airport traffic.

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.
