How we helped

Kaleido established over 50 inbound travel corridors to these 11 Middle Eastern markets. Corridors were determined following an in-depth study of the macro-economic trends across these markets.

Kaleido analysed the travel trends including business and leisure tourism to establish the number of arrivals made by unique users. Through a systematic research process and utilising our in-house data on roaming usage, Kaleido was able to model the inbound roaming traffic as requested by the client.

Findings were delivered in an excel format, alongside a strategic report assessing key trends of each market and dynamics of the corridors. Aligned to this, we provided insights into the client’s key priority markets to focus on operational and commercial activities. Research findings were backed up with regular calls throughout the process and a post-delivery workshop.
