FAQs

What are the data sources of the flights section?

In the Flights section of our data analysis platform for tourist destinations, the data sources come from trusted and established sources known as GDS, i.e. Global Distribution Systems. These GDSs constitute a global network of computer systems used by airlines and travel agents to manage, book and sell flights, not only domestic but also international.

Connecting to GDS gives our destination managers real-time information about itineraries, bookings, flight durations and other crucial information. Thanks to this direct connection with the GDSs, we can guarantee highly accurate and up-to-date data, providing our platform with a reliable and complete experience.

Using GDS as a data source for the Flights section allows us to offer a detailed and comprehensive overview of the flight options available to their travel destination. This level of detail is essential for making informed decisions regarding route optimisation, demand forecasting, market trend analysis, and overall improvement of travel strategies.

Our platform uses advanced algorithms to aggregate and analyse data from GDSs, presenting it clearly and intuitively through our dedicated widgets. You can easily explore different flight options, identify high and low season periods, monitor booking trends and predict future demand.

Furthermore, thanks to the filtering and customisation features, they can adapt the information displayed to their needs. For example, you can set arrival airports, set specific search parameters and view only direct flights. This flexibility ensures a highly personalised and targeted experience for our users.

We are constantly striving to keep our data sources up to date, continually monitoring changes in the aviation industry and ensuring that the information provided is accurate and timely. We want to give a reliable platform to base strategic and tactical decisions to promote tourism in the destination.

What are GDSs?

GDSs (Global Distribution Systems) are technology platforms used in the travel and tourism industry to distribute and book travel services such as flights, hotels, car rentals, etc. GDSs act as intermediaries between travel service providers, such as airlines and hotel chains, and travel agents or online travel agencies.

GDSs collect and consolidate information about travel services from various sources, such as airlines, hotels and related service providers. This data is then made available to travel agents and OTAs, who can access the GDS via dedicated IT systems or web interfaces.

GDSs allow travel agents to access various travel options and make real-time bookings. Agents can compare fares, flight times, hotel availability and other relevant information through the GDS interface and book the required services on behalf of their clients. This allows travel agents to offer more choice and flexibility to their customers, as well as streamline the booking process.

Some of the major GDSs are Amadeus, Saber, Galileo and Travelport. These platforms are widely used in the travel industry and play a vital role in the global distribution of travel services. GDSs have become integral to the travel booking ecosystem, facilitating the connection between service providers and travel agents.

Does the information about flight reservations and arrivals consider all types of carriers, such as low-cost airlines?

Thanks to our exclusive partnership with Travelport, we can provide all data relating to leading international airlines, such as Air France, British Airways, and Lufthansa, thus returning a comprehensive picture of the current trends. At the moment, these data don't include low-cost carriers.

Which period can I analyse?

As for the period you can analyse, we have developed a highly flexible and versatile time filter. This allows you to conduct detailed analyses of the past and the future, opening new perspectives for making targeted and informed strategic decisions.

When we say past, we mean you can look into historical data. This is an essential feature for tracing performance trends and significant events over time. Find out how visitor flow has evolved over the seasons, identify peaks of interest in specific events or activities, and better understand the dynamics of your visitors over the years.

As for the future, our time filter allows you to go up to 12 months in the future concerning the day you are consulting the platform. Imagine having a privileged window into future trends, anticipated bookings and arriving passengers. This functionality is invaluable for planning promotional campaigns, predicting the demand for travel services and optimising marketing strategies. Not only can you analyse historical data, but you can also gain a valuable edge by looking beyond the horizon and leveraging intelligent forecasts to make decisions.

Our intuitive interface will guide you in using this powerful tool. Select your desired start and end date in our time filter, and the platform will automatically display relevant data for the selected period. You can easily change the analysis period to fit your evolving needs.

What filters can I use in the Flights section?

In the section dedicated to flights, we have made a wide range of filters available to obtain detailed and relevant analyses. These tools will allow you to explore and understand flight data effectively and efficiently.

This will allow you to monitor the progress of flights arriving and departing from specific airports, helping you better understand traveller preferences and adopt targeted marketing strategies.
