The efficiency of ground operations is becoming increasingly critical for the airline industry.
Airlines are not waiting for petrol prices to rise before improving their productivity.
Quick flight rotations also depend on a high level of efficiency at ground level.


For airports, it is essential to contribute to this performance by mastering operating costs, optimizing the flow of passenger traffic, participating in “collaborative decision making” among airline industry partners and developing non-aeronautical revenues. All these steps currently being taken throughout the world require strong technological support. The price of petrol is not preventing airports from coming up with ideas.
