Creating value in airports requires a holistic understanding of airports as both an essential public infrastructure and a commercial entity.
CAI brings together the knowledge, experience and skills needed to help partner airports deliver a best-in-class travel experience while optimising the airport’s commercial potential.
Sustained Shareholder Value Creation
AIRPORTS OF SOUTHERN RUSSIA
CAI marked its first foray into Russia in June 2012. It invested in four airports in the Krasnodar region which serves the resorts of Anapa, Gelendzhik, Sochi, and the business centre and political capital of the region, Krasnodar.
CAI provides a comprehensive range of services to the investee airports to drive multi-faceted improvements across all business lines. This includes traffic development, capacity planning, commercial and retail development, airport service quality and operational efficiency enhancements.
For instance in 2014, CAI planned for the expansion of Krasnodar Airport. Key areas included traffic forecast for capacity planning, flow optimisation for operational efficiency, facility provision, commercial space planning and general airport improvements. Sochi Airport also inaugurated a new VIP terminal in 2013, and introduced a new Service Blueprinting concept to uplift service standards.
The results of CAI’s integrated management approach were validated when all four airports garnered top accolades in 2015, 2016 and 2017 at the National Aviation Infrastructure Show. The judging criteria was based on passenger services quality, airline marketing and services, infrastructure modernisation, security, non-aviation business as well as public relations strategy. Sochi International Airport also came up tops at the Airports Council International Airport Service Quality Awards in 2015 and 2016.
