SINGAPORE, July 26, 2011 /PRNewswire-Asia/ — Transport IQ, along with the 7th Annual Maximising Non-Aeronautical Revenue through Airport Services Summit  recently conducted a survey with travel retail and airport professionals. The results point unanimously to the fact that airports worldwide are intending to grow their non-aeronautical revenues from the current 20-40 percent to a high of above 50 percent.

Driving this growth is the sales that retail and duty free outlets in airports are achieving. 62% of respondents said this is their biggest non-aeronautical revenue generator currently and is also the area seeing the fastest growth.

Its findings also demonstrate that airports are increasingly becoming tech-savvy, with nearly 90% of respondents indicating that they are already using, or are looking to use, social media to promote their non-aeronautical revenues.

The 7th Annual Maximising Non-Aeronautical Revenue through Airport Services Summit to be held on the 6 and 7 of October will discuss creative solutions to capitalise on the current upturn in the market and further increase non-aeronautical revenues.
