Identifying the landside and airside areas of operational improvement as per client's requirements, helping them save millions of dollars. The problems encountered due to poorly run systems are felt by everyone involved in air travel in terms of delayed flights, long queues, lost baggage, rising costs and wasted time. Hence, the airport operations are very important.
For every single airline time is a critical value. Especially time spent on the ground during handling procedure does not allow an airline to generate any revenues. Revenues can be generated only when the aircraft is in the air. Therefore reducing non-productive period spent on the apron is one of the biggest challenges airlines are facing in such competitive market.
Reducing stay on the ground brings possibility of adding additional frequency for an aircraft flying on short or medium-haul routes. From marketing prospect, more frequencies leads to more attractive schedule, more attractive schedule resulting in competitive advantage. From economic prospect, more frequencies leads to more passengers, more passengers resulting in more revenues.
Few of the areas of operational improvements includes:
Better coordination and sequencing of access to the aircraft, reducing ramp congestion
Faster clearance through security of aircraft spare parts needed for turn-around, and if possible by storing most commonly required items in equipped areas closer to the ramp
Improvisation of tracking and management of ground-based assets, including more efficient sharing of common resources by the operators
Early warnings about arising disruptions via real-time monitoring of turn-around progress
Automated tracking and management of safety and ancillary equipment helping reduce the need for manual checks
