Looking back at the 24th BEONTRA Summit – Virtual Edition

Looking back at the 24th BEONTRA Summit – Virtual Edition

This year, we invited for a different kind of Summit than has been known in the past: the 24th BEONTRA Summit – Virtual Edition. The online event took place on three days over the past three weeks. Various sessions have been hosted from our Karlsruhe headquarters and all the other home office locations. The different format was required due to the cancelations of not only the APAC Summit scheduled for March 2020, but also the global Summit to be hosted by Oman Airports and the Route Development Summit in Q3 2020.

Now, a few days after wrapping up the final day, we are looking back at three days of interactive and exciting sessions.

We are especially proud of the large and global attendance of our community who made this event series so valuable. In total we welcomed more than 70 attendees from 43 airports, airlines and ground handlers around the world.

The BEONTRA Summit provided a platform for exchange between industry peers, discussing the most pressing challenges currently faced by airports and their planning, forecasting and sales & marketing teams.

Key points raised in the discussions were:

  • How to deal with the unavailability of historical data comparable to the current situation that normally is the basis for so many planning tasks?
  • How to adapt common and proven forecasting approaches to the current reality?

It was great to see how much all community members were looking forward to having the chance to exchange their ideas of how to overcome those challenges with their colleagues and the level of interaction possible in such an online event.

In addition to the open discussions, which were taking place in a Barcamp format, we offered hands-on sessions to showcase new features as well as best practices for the first three solutions of our next generation product generation BEONTRA Horizons:

  • Schedule Composition: create comprehensive flight schedules from multiple data sources as a basis for further planning and forecasting steps
  • Budget Forecasting: create your flight schedule-based aeronautical revenue forecast for the next season or fiscal year in line with your targets
  • Route Portfolio Management: monitor your network, identify market opportunities and stay on top of the recovery

How scenario planning of terminal operations supports the successful management of the COVID-19 recovery

As most countries are slowly recovering from the Covid-19 pandemic, air traffic is expected to resume and pick up momentum. While restarting operations is good news for all airports, new rules and regulations to protect passengers’ and airport staff’s safety are in full effect and require special planning by airport capacity planners. This important planning aims to lay out possible future scenarios for planners to help be ready for any sort of recovery.

Join our webinar in which we will discuss an approach to scenario planning of terminal operations to successfully manage the recovery from COVID-19:

  • Finding the right balance between safety and efficiency
  • Being flexible and prepared for any kind of operating scenario
  • Keeping passenger confidence high

Make sure that airport operations are viable with the new health and safety measures in place!

Watch our webinar recording: How to tackle air service development under COVID-19 – a practical approach

Due to the impact of the current pandemic, retaining and recovering the route network has become the dominant challenge for literally every airport.On 14th May we have held a live webinar discussing not only the impact of COVID-19, but also a practical approach to air service development during the crisis.

Our team was joined by two aviation experts, Alexander Schroll (Munich Airport International) and Robert Keysselitz (CircleSolution), as well as a large audience that actively participated in the discussion with their comments, questions and input.

A brief poll conducted during the webinar revealed that most of the audience expects the full recovery of the aviation business to take more than two years. Given this context, our experts discussed:

  • Beyond the current lockdown, what could be long-term effects on route development?
  • Which consequences result from the airlines’ adoption to demand changes?
  • Who could be winners and losers of the crisis?

Furthermore, a practical approach helping airports understand their markets was introduced. Using the new BEONTRA Route Portfolio Management feature, the group discussed how airports can

  • Undertake a health check of their network
  • Use RASK and other KPIs to understand which routes are strong or endangered
  • Utilize market data for fact-based conversations with airline partners

Take charge of recovering your airport’s routes after the pandemic!

The current pandemic of the novel coronavirus has disrupted the aviation business. In a time where most airports are facing dramatic traffic drops or even a cease of operations, the immediate focus of route development has naturally shifted from developing eager opportunities to retaining and recovering existing routes.

Concentrate on the right routes for a successful restart

In this phase of uncertainty and unparalleled economic pressure…

  • Airlines will concentrate on routes which have proven to be profitable in the past
  • The discussion around incentives is likely to become more important than ever
  • Airports and regional partners need to become more selective and spend their limited budget
    in a way in which it pays off best.

New BEONTRA feature enables airports to identify their focus routes

To support the activities of airports and their airline partners around a restart under the current circumstances, BEONTRA has released a cutting-edge feature to its B Route Development solution.

  • The new Route Portfolio Management allows airports to adopt the airline’s perspective and benchmark their routes against similar airline routes using the main KPIs RASK, load factor, fare and yield.
  • The solution combines BEONTRA’s know-how of aviation best practices with industry standard data sources, such as Sabre Global Demand Data, to provide airports with the relevant route performance insights in one place.
  • The analysis results help airports identify focus routes and vulnerable spots and thus enable them to decide on which routes they should concentrate for the post-pandemic recovery.

Take charge of the recovery and start making data-driven decisions on the appropriate route development actions! Contact us today for a demo!
