Airport Strategy and Marketing (ASM), the air route development consultancy based in the UK, has expanded its operations to include a North American division, the company said.
ASM´s consultancy services provide airports and airlines with the strategic guidance to expand their route networks and increase passenger numbers. In addition to its consultancy division, ASM provides traffic forecasting and data products and an extensive range of route development training courses.
Two US-based consultants, Martin Kammerman and Ilona Cambron, have been recruited to provide route development services for the North American market.
Ilona Cambron brings 11 years of experience working with airports and airlines in North America, Europe, the Middle East, and Asia. In her last role at a US-based consulting group, she was responsible for developing new domestic US and international route pairs.
Previously Ilona was responsible for air service development and marketing at four airports, including Russia´s third largest, as part of the biggest airport management corporation in Russia.
Martin Kammerman has a wealth of airline experience having worked for United Airlines, US Airways and Continental Airlines for 25 years. Before departing United Airlines for a directorship at Sixel Consulting Group in 2015, he was responsible for all phases of domestic new market planning, competitive analysis and strategy, as well as the coordination and implementation of new routes.
The recruitment of Martin and Ilona is a significant move for ASM, marking the consultancy´s first steps into the US. The employment of more consultants is underway as ASM plans to rapidly expand its presence in North America.
