Airline Fare Analysis

The new Apex Fares Analysis module gives access to an extensive historic database of real airline fares stretching back as far as January 2013. With a simple query-builder interface, it enables quick analysis of top-level trends as well as detailed route-by-route performance.

Over 90% of Europe's low-cost airlines

We sample prices from 93% of European low-cost airlines by capacity and use the data to generate a detailed monthly route-by-route view of the average fares achieved across complete networks. This approach has enabled us to build an online dataset containing more than five million individual data points.

This enables you to understand which routes are performing well (or badly) for low-cost airlines. Data can be segmented by airline, country, or route level.

Michael Cawley at ACI World, Istanbul, June 2013:

"When we look at an airport we look at the cost & revenue. Route selection is an art not a science. We cancel 7% each year"

  • Airports

    • Evaluate whether your airlines are making a profit or a loss on a particular route

    • Be better informed in airport charges negotiations

    • Compare your airport performance with competitors

  • Airlines

    • Analyse competitor network performance

    • Compare the fares achieved between airlines on directly competed routes

    • Evaluate the success of competitor strategies at core bases

  • Financial Analysts

    • Analyse the recent performance of airlines and feed this into your analysis before quarterly results are announced

    • Rationally assess the success of management strategies (e.g. is the Ryanair focus on business travellers and primary airports delivering an increase in average fares?)

    • Compare the performance of low-cost airlines across core European country markets.
