The T2RL Database and Business Models
What is it?
The backbone of our analysis is an industry database of virtually all airlines, vendors, relationships, contracts, distribution, passenger activity, airline e-commerce and related statistics. We use this data for our own analysis and for producing charts and easy to understand dynamic graphics. Additionally we give the subscribers the ability to drill into the data to do their own analysis and reporting.

New airlines are starting up all the time. Despite frequently being unable to return the cost of capital there are investors willing to fund new airline ventures. In a new section T2RL now list startups by region with information on location, investment, planned operational dates, fleet, routes and staff.

Franchise Adjustments and Market Share Reporting
Airline Franchise Adjustments
Reporting on the airline industry is a very challenging activity. Reporting on the supply of IT services to the industry just adds to the complications. At T2RL we have a well-established process to ensure that we track numbers that are consistent and provide an accurate representation of the state of the industries we follow.

Application Section
Graphical representation of the airline passenger application architecture. The information documents and identifies the relationships between reservations, operational systems, revenue integrity, customer data, revenue management, accounting and business intelligence.

Graphical and statistical views for breakdown of distribution channels of airlines by region and by channel.

Contract analysis
In the contracts section you can see which airlines are using which PSS products, and most interestingly the known expiry date of the contracts. By filtering this data by year and by airline size we are able to list the upcoming addressable market for each product over the next 16 years. This is a premium product.
Please contact us for more details.

Airlines Section
Drill down into airline detail, business model, distribution channels, schedules summary, traffic and software. Search by name, code, tier, region, country, business model, passenger numbers, Alliance status and software.

Vendor Section
