airport & aviation

Our Approach

The investment potential in the world of aviation is phenomenal, and we’re here to help you unlock it.

We guide you to invest intelligently.

From small regional airports to major international transport hubs, Infrata provides key industry insight to help you invest intelligently in infrastructure projects, and create a strategy for their future development.

Together we’ll find the route to higher revenues, lower costs and long term value.

Our expertise helps clients get the most from their investments, tapping the often overlooked streams of revenue lying dormant in the aviation sector. 

We’ll find opportunities for growth, and identify the cost and traffic risks.

This involves working with the wider aviation community to understand the market and match infrastructure to its needs.

We see the bigger picture, delivering traffic forecasts and commercial revenue projections.

Ultimately, we’ll help you create a vision for non-aeronautical streams such as duty free, airport car parking and airport city development.

Our tools are the industry’s gold standard.

We believe that analysis is key to recognising the power of investment.

A thorough analysis relies on exhaustive data and powerful tools. Our tools are the very best. Using resources like OAG, MIDT and PAXIS, our analytical frameworks use industry benchmarks to offer accurate projections and insight relevant to your investment needs.

That’s just to get started.

Following our evaluation, we’ll show you the practical implications of our analysis, helping you understand what it means for you and your investments.

At Infrata we understand that no two aviation projects are the same. Understanding the specific needs of business and regional airports is key to our success.

Our global, multi-lingual team creates links between airports around the world.

Our team has first-hand experience of working in Civil Aviation Authorities and working with government agencies. We’re industry-leaders when it comes to understanding policy and regulation.

Working with the wider aviation community, Infrata’s advisory services also extend to the aviation service industry, for maintenance, repair and operations.

Infrastructure investment is about more than on-site facilities: it’s about the bigger picture. That’s why our work extends to non-aeronautical revenues, such as transportation links to nearby cities.

Our journey starts with a simple consultation. Arrange a meeting with our team to discuss your options for investing in aviation infrastructure.
