Since the early stage of airport transactions, we learned the necessity that all parts of a bid has to interwoven in one linked model to be successful.
Changes at short-notice are very common during the course privatisation bids. The planning model must therefore be robust enough to allow the right adjustments to be made quickly. Over the past 20 years, with our long term partner ADM we have developed and refined a unique and integrated airport planning model which combines the key parameters for a successful airport development. Therefor we use this tool for our consulting projects as well. These include:
- Market Assessment: macroeconomics, competition, airlines, tourism, catchment area, demand, etc.
- Strategy: vision, positioning, strategic success factors, outsourcing, initiatives, scenarios, etc.
- Traffic Forecast: passengers, movements, cargo, routes, aircraft types, peak hours, etc.
- Capacity Plan: service levels, phasing, bottlenecks, quantities, passenger flows, dimensioning, etc.
- Technical Concept: master plan, functional design, terminal layout, landside development, etc.
- Capital Expenditure: construction costs, refurbishments, maintenance, equipment, etc.
- Revenue Planning: aeronautical and non-aeronautical revenues, landside revenues, etc.
- Operational Expenses: staff planning, asset related costs, cost of material and services, etc.
- Financial Plan: balance sheet, P&L, cash flow, equity and debt financing, ratios, valuations, etc.
Over the years, ACV and ADM have enhanced and strengthened the integrated airport planning model. Today, our model is a key element in our advisory work and an important and reliable tool for the transaction business. Please refer to the websites of ACV and ADM for more information.
