Kiwi.com launches data insights product suite – enhancing airport intelligence on Virtual Interlining
Airport Dashboard will enhance business intelligence needs from airports
PRAGUE, 21 October 2019 – Kiwi.com, a leading online travel booking platform powered by cutting-edge technology, which develops state-of-the-art technological solutions to the travel industry, announces today that it has launched its Airport Dashboard data tool designed to analyze market demand and transfer flows of passengers who are using non-standard routes such as those pioneered by Kiwi.com.
Virtual Interlining, Kiwi.com flagship product, hence creates new business opportunities for airports. Benefiting from this new type of transfer passenger, the airport operator drives additional passenger growth to its platform – adding additional aviation and non-aviation revenues.
Airports can discover more about Virtually Interlined passengers
With the first data insights tool from Kiwi.com specifically designed for airports, strong B2B market intelligence is provided to support the growing trend of “self-connect” at airports. Accessible through Kiwi.com’s dedicated B2B portal Tequila, the Airport dashboard provides unique data sets only Kiwi.com is able to supply – all around connecting flows at airport level.
Airport managers, for example, can see granular information on O&D level about the popularity of routes and airline connectivity at their specific airport. Market trends and forecasts can be built, as not only flown data, but also booking and search data for a specific period in the future is available.
“Regarding the Airport Dashboard, we are now able to offer quality data insights to airports or other travel industry players with an easily manageable user interface on virtual interlining trends and market behavior for the first time. On the one hand, airports can build business cases around new routes, and estimations on transfer flows to e.g. long-haul carriers. On the other hand, the operational staff at airports can support the transfer flow and even optimize passenger assistance on flight number level.” says Patrick Zeuner, Head of Airport Partnerships at Kiwi.com.
