Airfare Big Data: What’s in it for your airport? The new source of insight for Airport Network Monitoring & Route Development (FREE WEBINAR)

We will analyse one of the most celebrated success stories of the past months: Norwegian’s long-haul operations from London Gatwick to New York J.F.K. We will look at how to evaluate the airline’s performance and its impact on Gatwick’s operations. Furthermore we will take a closer look at the implications for airports sharing the same catchment area.
