The Company provides a range of consulting services for air service development, network audits, airport marketing, airport investment and aircraft manufacturing. These services are provided worldwide by its ASM (Airport Strategy & Marketing) business. ASM received the Best Airport Consultancy award from the Airport Operators Association (AOA) in 2010.[7]
