WHAT WE DO: The world’s first Property Listing Service for Airports. Designed and Developed by Airport real estate professionals to be used by Airport Real Estate Professionals.
With increasing fuel costs, competition for airlines, a more sophisticated traveller, and the need to reduce landing fees, Airports around the world are turning to non-aeronautical revenue streams more than ever before. The revenue generated from renting real estate and concessions has traditionally proven to give an Airport its highest profit margins. Today we see that these revenue streams are the fastest growing profit segments in the industry.
Whether you are an over-arching organization in charge of many airports or a single airport operator, you can now use Airportxo as a marketing tool for your team to increase exposure to your listings and availabilities or upcoming RFP’s around the world. Leverage Airportxo advertising and reach out to the world’s best tenants, international consultants, construction companies, cargo operators, Real Estate Developers, Hotel Operators and Engineering firms.
Airportxo operates as a subscription based business to business website. There are no annoying advertising revenues or fees or commissions based with this service. It’s simply the world’s most efficient platform for tenants and suppliers to seek out available opportunities at airport properties. The information is secure and only available to members and is not open to the public.
HOW IT WORKS
AIRPORTS: Airports have their own proprietary branded dashboard. You will have the ability to upload the details of your listings directly into the system. You can update them from time to time and add different categories of opportunities. The revenue reporter is an option included in the subscription that allows your tenants to report their sales figures directly to you. The site reminds you of critical lease dates and upcoming renewal notice periods. You will also have the ability to post RFP’s and details of the offering process along with documentation. Interested parties or prospective tenants will then contact the people that you authorize directly. You can also post a standard offer form if you wish. You will also be able to upload key data on your airport and on your procedures for a submission of interest. Now your airport business development team can be easily and quickly informed as to what your colleagues are posting in other airports around the world, airport marketing trends, RFP processes and strategies that will help you market more effectively.
COMMERCIAL USERS: These subscribers consist of local regional and international companies that can search out opportunities at airports around the world. You will have the ability to search out available property of various asset types or concessions that may be of interest to your organization. You can also seek out available development lands for rent, RFP’s for upcoming expansion projects, construction contracts or auctions that call for the supply of services or equipment to an airport. You will receive the direct contact information of the person in charge of the specific opportunity without the frustration of going through various channels before reaching the right person.
