Launched today a series of interactive data models designed to build and interpret projections of airline capacity in key markets

SYDNEY – June 11,  2020 –  CAPA – Centre for Aviation, leading provider of independent aviation market intelligence, has launched a series of interactive data models designed to build and interpret projections of airline capacity in key markets.

The CAPA Airline Capacity Models provide an effective breakdown of each nation’s domestic and international outlook for seat capacity, supported by OAG – as well as each city and route pair – based on the 2019 actuals.

CAPA Airline Capacity Model

CAPA's Airline Capacity Forecast Model applies assumptions around six key phases; Zero/Grounded, Skeleton, Acutely Restricted, Basic, Restrained and Standard. 

Regularly updated and constantly reassessed on the basis of numerous inputs including CAPA's daily 3-400 global aviation news items, the CAPA Model helps users interactively track the pace of recovery in their relevant market.

Derek Sadubin, Managing Director, CAPA – Centre for Aviation said:

“The impact of COVID-19 has damaged the efficacy of traditional methods of understanding the future size and scale of our industry. Frustrated by the lack of a model that takes into account border closures and other key assumptions around the pace of recovery of domestic and international passenger markets, we set out to build our own model with the support of OAG’”.

CAPA Airline Capacity Models are now available for AustraliaNew Zealand and China.

Models for the UKFranceGermany, the USAIndiaJapanSouth Korea and other countries are under preparation
