(Karlsruhe, Germany) September 21, 2022 – BEONTRA, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Leidos, a FORTUNE 500® science and technology leader, today announced the launch of the Future Travel Demand feature to its Route Forecasting solution. The new feature provides airports with access to forward-looking and historical data to better quantify market demand.
“COVID-19 completely upended the air travel industry and historical data alone is not sufficient to predict future demand for air travel,” said Martijn Verhees, Managing Director for BEONTRA. “BEONTRA rapidly adapted to these changes. We’re excited to offer the Future Travel Demand feature, which will accelerate airports into the new normal.”
BEONTRA’s Route Forecasting solution already provides customers with access to historical data, flight schedules, air passenger travel patterns, connection points and more to simplify the route forecasting process. The addition of the Future Travel Demand feature leverages travel search data, enabling BEONTRA customers to make more informed forecasting decisions for their airports.
The search data, which is integrated into BEONTRA’s Route Forecasting algorithms, is comprised of both online searches and traditional sales channels, such as travel agencies. This information will allow airports to predict near-term demand more accurately based on access to the most comprehensive and up-to-date information on travel behavior and trends.
Customers in attendance at BEONTRA’s user summit in Athens, Greece last week were able to see this feature in action. The Future Travel Demand feature is being rolled out as an add-on to the Route Forecasting solution.
