How to minimize aircraft ground time without jeopardizing safety and security?
Ground handling addresses many service requirements of an aircraft between the time it arrives and the time it departs on its next flight. Speed, efficiency and accuracy are important in ground handling services in order to minimize the turnaround time. As airlines face increasing pressure to improve profitability, they are striving to carry the greatest number of passengers feasible while keeping their fleets in revenue service as much as possible. All this without compromising passenger convenience, jeopardizing safety and security and minimizing the environmental impact.
The way toward this goal is to ensure that parties have agreed processes in place, employees are properly trained and responsibilities well known and communicated properly.
Most of the ground services are not directly related to actual flying of an aircraft and are handled by different ground handling agents around the globe. We at Airport College International created an e-Learning training course to help organisations to familiarize everyone in convenient way as training is one of key elements to minimize aircraft ground time.
The e-Learning course is now ready and available for corporate customers. If you want to hear more, please let us know.
