RDC has more than 15 years of experience in understanding detailed airline operating costs. The Apex route performance module represents the latest evolution of our state-of-the-art online analysis tools.
Our research team builds a comprehensive picture of airline costs from a wide range of data sources, including direct feeds from the aircraft manufacturers, airport charges, live fuel prices and leasing costs.
We then structure this complex raw data so that we can run a query for a wide combination of routes and aircraft. The power of the system is that it enables scenarios and comparisons to be run, comparing different routes, airlines or aircraft.
Evaluate whether an airline is a credible fit for a new route
Assess the impact of airport discounts on overall route performance
Cross-check breakeven fares with real fare data in the Apex Airline Fares Analysis module
Assess competitor cost performance on target routes
Compare aircraft in your fleet between routes to optimise network performance
Forecast the impact of changes to individual cost line elements such as fuel or airport charges
