Airport Success Planning In The New Environment
From Boyd Group International

Here’s a not so subtle fact or two…

  • Between 2021 and 2025, US airports will see 1.5 billion fewer enplanements than what was expected before the CCP-Covid pandemic.
  • The US airline industry will shrink in scope and fleets… today over one third of airliner are either parked or enormously under-utilized.
  • Changes in fleet mix with new airliner types will result in different airline market strategies.

One thing is clear – the entire air transportation system has changed permanently. The CCP-Covid pandemic has shifted travel patterns in the economy, and has engendered material and structural changes in the entire airline industry.

The industry is now re-emerging, and bank on it – airports and communities need to get a clear picture of the new air transportation system to craft the programs necessary to assure maximizing air access in the new global future.

Traditional approaches won’t apply, because the airline industry is operating on whole new metrics.

Announcing our exclusive Runway To The Future Program. If you’re planning for the future, this program is essential. The forecast expertise of Boyd Group International can give you a clear understanding of the emerging shape of the air transportation system.

Here’s the approach…

It combines a clear forecast of the emerging air transportation dynamics as they will affect your airport. We start by imparting a clear and concise picture of the new structure of the U.S. airline industry, and then relate it to what you can expect in the future.

From that, we craft a professional presentation for your community, outlining what can be expected and how the community can support the airport. It is imperative that the community is brought up to speed on the new realities and opportunities that will be seen in the future.

Runway To The Future entails five key sections that will put your airport ahead of its competition in planning the future within a consolidated and restructured airline industry:

Section One: National Airline Trend Scenarios

The airline industry is re-structuring, driven both by consumer pattern shifts as well as due to the extensive damage done to balance sheets caused by the CCP-Covid pandemic. It’s important that your community understand the new environment and how airlines will evolve in the future

Section Two: Emerging Local Air Service Trends v Historical

This is where the landing gear meets the runway. Our Focus on the Future program candidly reviews the historical trends at your airport, and relates them to what is forecast to take place in the new environment. We’ll relate current shifts in air service due to airline strategy changes, and candidly discuss how they will affect your community

Section Three: Trend Analyses & Forecast Scenarios – Short-term & Long Term

Boyd Group International is the leader in airport forecasting. Our Airports:USA® program relates all aspects of air traffic generation. The Focus On The Future program will deliver a near-term forecast – out one year – to gain an understanding of what can be expected as the airline industry restructures. The long-term traffic and trend forecasts what is expected over the four years beyond the short-term projections, and will discuss known and expected strategic scenarios.

Section Four: Strategic Blueprint

From these data, Boyd Group International will assist in developing and crafting your airport’s comprehensive strategic and tactical air access program. We will discuss each incumbent and potential airline within the real context of the future.

No other source can deliver this level of forecast expertise – which will cut through the hype and deliver hard facts and projections which are critical to airport planning in the new environment.

Section Five: Community Update Presentations

The Runway To The Future Program includes the delivery of a comprehensive community presentation that will outline the findings and forecasts of the project.

The format can be on-site or be provided electronically, for up to 100 attendees, and allowing robust interaction and Q&A. The goal is to bring to the fore what the community can expect in the near term and how individuals can rally behind the airport in these tough times as well as in the future.
