Press Release: Aviation Week Networks’ Airport Strategy & Marketing Launches New Destination Catchment Solution

Custom data and insight on the origin of visitors to a destination market

Airport Strategy & Marketing (ASM), a global consulting firm and part of Aviation Week Network, has launched a new solution for destinations, tourism boards and economic development boards as part of its catchment analyser data solution, the Destination Catchment Analyser.

Based on the same principles as its Catchment Analyser for airports, the new destination catchment solution captures the location of visitors to a destination, allowing detailed interrogation of the source markets by zip code and the departure airports used.

The data provides insight into not only the locations of visitors, but how far they travel to catch a flight, allowing clients to determine if demand is regionalized, focused around direct services, or if the market is derived from a wider catchment. By utilizing this critical analysis, customers can focus marketing and promotional activity on either targeting existing customers or new markets where current demand is limited but there is potential.

“We are delighted to be launching our unique Destination Catchment Analyser tool for tourist boards, destinations and airports, giving insight on the origin of passengers, by zip code, to a destination market. ASM launched this exciting data tool with select clients and it has proven invaluable in discerning where their markets originate from and locating which airports they use to travel. As markets seek recovery in 2021, this insight assists with very targeted marketing to reach existing customers and identifies gaps in the market where new customers could be stimulated,” said Aidan Mooney, Vice President, Consulting, ASM.
