Our traffic development concepts include an in-depth analysis of the current traffic structure of the airport, the recording of the market and competition situation, the analysis of possible capacity bottlenecks and the depiction of possible development scenarios. On top of this, we provide a diagnosis of the current, strategic position and examine alternative strategies for improvement. The resulting transport development concept shows possible starting points for airport marketing as well as the resulting short- and medium-term and long-term forecast calculations and shows our assessment of the opportunities and risks involved in implementing the concepts.

Our technical and operational development concepts rely on a comprehensive analysis of existing technical facilities and an analysis of the current, operational procedures of the airport. The expected capacity requirements for the technical equipment and facilities as well as the predicted requirements for the personnel capacities are depicted on the basis of variable quality targets in alternative development scenarios and compared with each other. The resulting requirements for expanding the airport are mapped quantitatively in short-term and long-term investment programs and implemented in alternative spatial planning concepts. In addition, the consequential costs that can be derived from the investment and personnel development programs are prognosticated over long periods of time and made available for the presentation of a complete life cycle.

Our financing and business plans also rely on a comprehensive analysis of the financial situation of the company on the basis of the traffic and capacity forecasts. All information relevant to short-term and long-term financing is merged into a tailor-made financial planning model consisting of a forecast of income and costs, a plan profit and loss account, a balance sheet forecast and a cash flow statement. On the basis of this, alternative financing models are tested and compared with each other using industry-standard valuation models. After selecting the best possible financing form, the results are summarized in a company planning concept.

Our environment concepts include both the recording and forecasting of external effects of air traffic around the airport as well as concepts for improving communication with external stakeholders. The outlook for the external effects of air transport, in turn, includes both macroeconomic effects (such as value added, jobs, etc.) and environmental impacts (such as noise and pollutant emissions) and their monetary valuation. Forecasts of the environmental effects are based on the results of the traffic and capacity forecasts and can be developed for short, medium or long-term forecasting periods. This means that major expansion projects (lead projects) or alternative development strategies with regard to their external effect can be tested and prepared for possible environmental impact assessments.

Our strategic development concepts include both the verbal description of the desired development strategy and the implementation of the strategy into a suitable short, medium or long-term enterprise planning. As part of the strategy development, all sub-planning (traffic forecast, capacity forecast and investment planning, financial planning and environmental and environmental concepts) are brought together and poured into an overall concept. The overall development concept contains strategic objectives, basic statements about the company’s general direction of march, objectives and concepts for the alignment of individual company segments and functional areas, as well as a list of strategically important initiatives and measures for the implementation of the strategy.
