Passenger Traffic Forecasts and Market Analysis Study Arturo Merino Benítez International Airport 2007-2027

The Need

Anticipating that SCL will operate at capacity sooner than was originally envisioned, SCL Terminal Aéreo Santiago S.A. selected YVRAS, in partnership with InterVISTAS Consulting Inc., to undertake a Passenger Traffic Forecast and Market Analysis Study.

Our Role

InterVISTAS prepared the following elements :

  • An analysis of the historical passenger market;
  • A detailed analysis of the low-cost carriers operating at SCL;
  • Constrained and unconstrained forecasts of Santiago passenger traffic from 2007 to 2027 at 5-year intervals;
  • Peak hour forecasts; and
  • Examined the relationship between passenger traffic and commercial sales.


Several of the study’s outputs were to be used as inputs to an infrastructure plan for the airport.
