Air freight feasibility studies

With demonstrated success in guiding and managing the establishment of new air cargo capabilities and air services, AVISTRA works with partners to ascertain whether there is a viable business opportunity for air freight services.

Aviation strategy and business case development

In the brave new COVID-19 world, aviation strategy and business case development have changed.  Airport aviation strategy today must now be diverse, it must consider both air freight and passenger related aviation development.

Infrastructure business case development

Any investment in infrastructure must be underpinned by knowledgeable analysis of the true market opportunity and the value the infrastructure will add for the communities the airport serves. 

Airline engagement

Our experienced team can help with the language, and the relationships, to ensure airline engagement is both productive, and ultimately, results in establishing truly mutually beneficial business relationships.

Airport business plan development

Airports must strategise aviation development and non-aviation revenue sources, and this must be done with a strong understanding of the airport’s unique commercial strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats.  

Market intelligence

New business development and organisational strategy must be informed by a clear understanding of the market, the roles of the business in the market, and the opportunities and threats landscape.



Clients rely on our years of independent specialised aviation, aviation development, air cargo and airport management experience to bring a wealth of insight and proprietary data, ability to collaborate on-site with senior leaders, and to consistently meet challenging deadlines.
