M Science Launches M Analysis and M Data Coverage of Global Airline Industry

Unique Dataset to Track Thousands of Flights Across 500 Airports in U.S. and Europe

M Science, the leader and pioneer in data driven research and analytics, today announced the launch of M Analysis and M Data on the global airline industry. The firm will leverage its unique dataset and proprietary technology to track several key industry metrics including unit economic indicators like passenger revenue per available seat mile (PRASM) and revenue per seat (RPS) along with rarely disclosed pricing trends at specific airports.

“Airline industry dynamics can change faster than the weather,” noted Michael V. Marrale, M Science CEO. “We are monitoring thousands of flights across more than 500 airports globally, giving us unmatched insight into market-moving trends before they become widely apparent. This is just another example of how M Science helps our clients make more informed and calculated business and investment decisions.”

M Science analysts will also monitor route-level data, which can be used to evaluate the size and scope of airfare wars and track the new “basic economy” pricing some airlines have introduced relative to fares on discount, no-frills competitors.

Airlines have been among the market’s best performing sectors over the past year, generating a return greater than 25-percent. The initial M Analysis coverage universe will include a total of 11 airlines, including network, low-cost and ultra-low-cost carriers in both the United States and abroad. These include: Alaska Airlines, Allegiant Air, American Airlines, Delta Air Lines, Hawaiian Airlines, Spirit Airlines and United Airlines along with European-based easyJet, Ryanair and Wizz Air. A monthly M Data product covering these companies will also be available.

This new offering complements M Science’s current product suite of M Analysis and M Data which cover over 400 companies and sub brands across U.S. Consumer, European Consumer and TMT.
