About this analysis
This analysis is a result of the cooperation between Skyscanner and ForwardKeys, which started in 2018. Since then Skyscanner has provided ForwardKeys with daily data on what routes people research and which flights they eventually select. ForwardKeys uploads this data to its online platform where the data, which shows demand, unserved and underserved routes, catchment areas and airport traffic leakage, can be easily analysed by its clients.
