31 January, 2023: IBA, the leading aviation market intelligence and consultancy company, has enhanced the capabilities of its IBA Insight aviation data and intelligence platform with the introduction of OAG flight schedules data.
This major addition to IBA Insight, which launches today, delivers enhanced insights on airline flight capacity – both globally and by operator.
The integration of OAG’s flight schedules data enables investors, banks, lessors, OEMs and other IBA customers to assess capacity at a global and operator level with forward-looking and historic schedules. Users can also evaluate routes and schedules to understand the demand for specific aircraft types.
Using IBA’s tailored dashboards, users can map growth or decline in capacity, allowing them to understand prevailing airline market sentiment. Comparisons can be made using measures such as number of flights, ASK (available seat kilometres), the number of seats, and the number of routes flown.
Aircraft portfolio managers can use schedules data to identify the strongest aircraft placement opportunities by observing changes in domestic and international schedules. Both schedule and market share changes at specific airlines can indicate the prevailing mood and trajectory of an operator, and can therefore enable investors, banks and lessors to identify risks in the existing placement of an aircraft portfolio.
Phil Seymour, President of IBA, says: “Incorporating OAG’s flight scheduling data enhances IBA Insight, enabling users to make strategic and agile decisions based on a wider range of insights. Our partnership with OAG delivers a greater dynamic and value for our customers and reinforces IBA’s position as a leading provider of aviation market intelligence.”
Simon Howard, Global Sales Director at OAG comments: “We’re delighted that our partnership with IBA has enhanced its online offering. OAG’s schedules data is well placed to support the needs of IBA’s users. We look forward to continuing our work together to provide industry leading data.”
