CAPA India Data Science & Analytics

How does Analytics help in Aviation & Travel? CAPA India Analytics enables our aviation and travel industry clients to make strategic, operational, and tactical decisions based on actionable insights derived from a combination of data science, applied research and industry expertise.

Data is constantly being created in the aviation and travel industries across commercial, operational and financial activities. Whether it is a passenger making a reservation, an airline scheduling an aircraft, a ground handler delivering baggage, or an airport allocating a gate, the underlying data points can be utilised to maximise revenue and optimise resources.

For example, behavioural segmentation helps create a campaign framework to deliver targeted offers. Customer preferences can be identified from transactional data such as size of party travelling, destination, flight timings, duration of stay, meal choices and duty free purchases. Analytics can be deployed to improve the effectiveness of marketing campaigns, enhance customer loyalty and cross-sell products and services.

Predictive data science can help airlines and airports increase profits, and build more effective
processes. Models based on machine learning can identify patterns in historical data to predict future performance and likely responses to changes in marketing, product and operations.
