It compares 110 of the world’s busiest airports by passenger volumes, against 19 identified threats, combining historical and predictive analysis to determine the levels of probability and impact of operational disruption on an airport’s profitability.

John Rooley, CEO of Global Aerospace commented, “In line with our WTW data-led strategy, we‘re driving change across the aviation ecosystem. This Index will deliver new perspectives and challenge how industry measures and manages risk.”

Dr Trevor Maynard, Director of Systemic Risk Research at Cambridge added, “The Centre for Risk Studies at Cambridge Judge Business School and WTW collaborated to create this index which will empower leaders in the aviation world, through data-driven insights, to inform risk resilience.”
