The next Big Thing in US air service growth
– for large airports and regional airports, too –
the influx of visitors from the Middle Kingdom…
… And they want to visit your region of the nation. But only if they know who you are, and you’re ready to welcome them.
Introducing our Partner, China Ni Hao, LLC!
Engage China Ni Hao, LLC., & Engage China. There’s more and more nonstops from Chinese cities to the US, and there will be an explosion in Chinese tourists that will be connecting on to key US visitation points, such as Spokane, Bangor, Sarasota, Reno, and New Orleans.
That means that US communities airports are a key part of the mix. Aggressive strategic planning to assure connectivity is just one part. Being China-Welcome, with considerations such as smoothing communication touch-points is also critical.
Recruiting China Air Access – Engaging Our Clients. Boyd Group International, already a leader in analysis and forecasting of China traffic and aviation, has joined the aggressive new team of China-related experts at China NiHao™ LLC., in crafting programs to make airports and communities China-Welcome™.
Here’s an important point to understand. Today, the China-US passenger traffic represents less than 10% of the latent demand. The barrier has been lack of capacity from key Chinese commercial centers to the USA.
That’s changing rapidly… and it will be mid-size as well as large US points that prepare now, that will be in the cross-hairs for more China nonstop.
BGI, based on our understanding of the China market, has new-approach programs to build China-US air service access. BGI is the only consulting firm that accomplishes air traffic demand forecasts for China, and for the USA.
Our Airports:China forecasts cover the 50 largest airports in China – over 92% of all traffic in the Middle Kingdom – and include projections of potential for new and expanded service from key commercial centers in China to points across the USA
Nonstops From China? It’s Not Just Large US Hubsites In The Picture. Our approach is very different from the traditional approach to recruiting China air service. Our knowledge of both the China and the US aviation marketplace allows BGI to identify where there are future communities of air service potential – by market and by airline. Remember, the enormous growth in the Chinese airline industry represents opportunities for nonstop service to many key industrial centers in the USA – and not just hubsites like Atlanta, San Francisco and Chicago.
Emerging Chinese carriers will be exploring new US opportunities – and Boyd Group International can match this with our US client airports. Add to that the expected explosion of capacity with the addition of the new Beijing Daxing International Airport, and it’s clear that US airports that have aggressive and targeted data and outreach will be in line for nonstop to the Middle Kingdom.
This year, over 3 million Chinese will visit the USA – that’s up from barely 200,000 just a decade ago. They’re traveling not just Disneyland and Broadway, but places like the Thousand Islands of New York State, and the Amish country of Pennsylvania, Moab, The French Quarter, The Alamo, and Mount Rushmore.
More and more will be traveling to these places by air, connecting beyond the US gateway hub.
And they each spend on average over $4,000 in the US, not including travel.
And here’s the kicker – this is just a trickle. Airports:China™ forecasts by Boyd Group International indicate that in 2015, the US actually experienced less than 6% of the potential demand from the fifteen largest Chinese cities, outside of Beijing and Shanghai.
