A 90 minute Webinar bringing together business leaders from leading airlines, ground handlers, airports and industry suppliers to discuss a strategy for improving turnaround processes to meet the challenges of the coronavirus pandemic. The session will include an online audience Q&A and be chaired by GHI Conference Chairman, Max Gosney. Topics:
- Staying profitable in the age of Covid complexity: What adaptions can operators make on the apron to manage the mounting cost of delivering heightened Covid-combatting measures during ground time? How can automation help cut downtime and ensure people and equipment are in the right place at the right time? And what about optimising passenger processing?
- Communication and stakeholder collaboration: Stakeholder collaboration has been the theme of survival strategies in the Covid crisis so far. So how does technology bind airlines, handlers and airports towards a more coherent and Covid-safe aircraft turnaround that benefits all three stakeholder groups?
- GSE: Lengthier ground times could mean GSE tied up on protracted turnarounds servicing each aircraft. So, will that mean more tugs, belt-loaders and dollies on order as stock feels the strain? Can telematics help us achieve greater equipment utilisation? Or is GSE pooling going to thrive post pandemic?
- Smarter workforce management strategies: How do operators ensure their workforce resource is better matched to the likely make up of Covid-19 affected schedules? How do you build in enough flexibility to cope with unplanned delays while avoiding your teams sitting idle during the troughs?
