Within the aviation market we provide strategy, economics and logistics services for private and public sector clients in all modes of transportation.

Expert Witness Services

Litigation and competition tribunal cases require credible expertise in economics, pricing and other areas of depth in transportation. Since the inception of InterVISTAS, expert witness services have been a core service for governments around the world and on behalf of transportation operators.


Growth of trade and travel across borders is expected to accelerate in the coming decades, yet the complexity of moving people and goods internationally is encumbered by difficult processes that add time and frustration to customers and financial costs to supply chains. InterVISTAS specialises in developing business cases for public and private sector agencies to facilitate trade and travel. Automation of processes, improving risk detection capabilities and reducing the number of steps for transit passengers are some of the core areas of the borders practice.

Strategic Planning

Establishing a vision for clients over the long term and developing a plan to reach their goals. This type of service is a vital step in setting long range initiatives for clients, as well as enabling early marketing of InterVISTAS services to implement strategies. This practice has core products in transportation gateway strategic planning and airport strategic plans.

Safety and security products include operations review, legal framework drafting as well as the development of management systems.
