Benefits

Enhanced network profitability

Accurate forecasts for passenger demand, revenue, and costs will enable better decision-making and provide more business insights, resulting in increased network profitability.

Improved strategic planning

Supporting you in a consistent and objective evaluation of multiple what-if scenarios in hours, not days or weeks, and without needing extensive manual calibration.

Plan everything – not just what’s yours

Amadeus SkyCAST is a network planning system that goes beyond your own existing network. It allows you to take into consideration new destinations, flight timings, hub structures, alliances, code-shares, and competitive responses.

Improved transparency

Amadeus SkyCAST provides different workspaces for basic and advanced users. Results of forecasts are available for easy analysis at flight, station, and market levels, and pinpointing the changes in the network.

Easy versioning

Track and maintain all changes in the input data for each scenario. Amadeus SkyCAST provides users with the capability of analyzing and comparing the results of one or more forecast outputs.

Features

Advanced forecasting models

Amadeus SkyCAST’s models consider passenger preference factors such as time of day, service type, airport preference, carrier preference, and other variables. The system’s traffic model converts forecasted demand of each itinerary into expected traffic, considering spill and recapture effects.

New generation features

Be able to use cabin-level forecasting with up-sell, multi-airport city forecasting, market stimulation, change-based demand forecasting, and capacity-plan demand forecasting.

Advanced user experience (UX)

Users can add, remove, and modify forecast input data to easily create different what-if scenarios; the system also provides batch editing to accommodate multiple edits on large amounts of data simultaneously.

Accuracy & calibration tool

Amadeus SkyCAST automatically runs forecasts on previous years’ schedules (back-cast) and compares results with historical traffic data to determine detailed forecasting accuracy measurements and adjustments at the system, market, and flight levels.

Advanced mathematical techniques

Amadeus SkyCAST is able to simulate passenger choice behavior and revenue management effects to calculate market shares, passenger traffic, passenger revenue, and detailed flight costs to forecast total network profitability of proposed schedules.
