Financial Research

We conduct ongoing detailed financial analysis of both listed and unlisted entities in the airline and airport sectors. CAPA India analyses revenues, cost structures, cash flows, balance sheets and financial ratios in order to drill down to the key drivers of performance. Our proprietary financial models are used to develop projections for carrier and industry profitability. We also maintain route-wise profitability models that allow us to assess the impact of changes to aircraft types or network structures.

Qualitative Studies

We are strongly focused on incorporating industry experience into our research. In order to do this, we regularly meet with industry leaders at various levels, from CXO executives to middle and senior level VPs at airlines, airport, general aviation operators, suppliers, travel and technology businesses, to ensure that we understand current thinking and planning. In addition, we maintain a key focus on regulatory and policy affairs which are so critical in a market such as India.

Quantitative Surveys

To support studies on demographics, customer segmentation and passenger trends, CAPA India conducts large-scale primary surveys to understand passenger behaviour and decision-making. We have surveyed 20,000+ respondents at airports, railway stations, shopping malls and in focus group environments for studies, including the demand for air travel, preferred international holiday destinations and airport retail.
