ASM engaged by Auckland Airport

Airport Strategy & Marketing (ASM) Ltd is proud to announce another contract win in the Australasia region.

Hot on the heels of last week's confirmation of a partnership with Cairns Airport, Australia, the global aviation route development expert has confirmed another commission; this time from Auckland Airport, New Zealand. The retained contract will involve establishing strategies for a number of areas, including tourism routes development.

Glenn Wedlock, General Manager aeronautical business development for Auckland Airport, said: "Here at Auckland we are keen to continue a strategy of growth and have engaged ASM as the experts to ensure we go about this in the most efficient and effective way."

An important part of the project will involve ASM working with Auckland to attract new airlines to the airport. The consultancy team has already begun advanced discussions with carriers such as Air Asia X.

John Grant, Managing Director of ASM, said:  "This contract represents a very positive step for the company as ASM expands its business in the Australasian market and begins to see the benefit of our newest regional office - run by consultant Gordon Bevan, in Wellington, New Zealand - and the recent increase in resources in our Kuala Lumpur office."

Notes to Editors

  • Airport Strategy & Marketing Ltd (ASM) was founded in 1993 and is the only dedicated specialist in the field of route development for airports.
  • ASM works exclusively for airports, helping them expand their route networks and bring economic development to their surrounding regions. The results that have been achieved support ASM's claim to be the world leader in its field.
  • ASM does not contract to airlines. This gives its consultants the unique ability to protect their objectivity and freedom to act in the best way possible for every client. Carriers understand that there are no conflicts of interest and, as such, relationships with them are based on trust and mutual respect.
  • The company is built around a growing team of experienced route development professionals and their approach purposely mirrors the function and nature of route development itself. This has enabled ASM to develop a track record without equal in delivering new routes for airports across all airline sectors.
  • ASM is a subsidiary of RDG, a family of inter-related companies, strategic partners and associates that is the leading global solutions provider in the strategically important 'route development' sector of air transport.
