Adrian Todd, CEO, and Mevin Varghese, Airport Planner, delivered an Airport Planning and Capacity Management course to senior airport managers within development and design departments late last year. Taking place in Singapore, delegates travelled from Angkasa Pura Airport in Indonesia for a course that provided an understanding of the key aspects and elements of ACM as well as its relevance within variety of operations including airfield, apron, terminal including baggage.
The Airport Planning Capacity Management Course, facilitated by EquipGlobal and based on IATA standards, was extremely well received by attendees, who highlighted in the course feedback the focused approach, wealth of knowledge and excellent coaches from AiQ Consulting.
Delegates also learnt how to manage demand peaks and troughs including busy periods or changing schedules, utilise resources more effectively and gained an insight into the unique power of data analytics and advanced simulation for making strategic airport decisions.
With an Engineering and Business background, Adrian Todd has worked in Heathrow, Leeds Bradford, Hyderabad, Budapest, Sydney, Manchester and other major airports for the many years using his project and stakeholder management skills to increase capacity and create operational efficiencies in the projects.
Adrian Todd said “As a trusted partner in constrained and saturated airports worldwide, Mevin and I wanted to share our knowledge and expertise with other consultants. Airports are always a team event and consultancies, analysts and senior airport management across the world need to work together to the planning and capacity solutions that passengers need.”
Using their AiQ experience, Adrian and Mevin worked with the attendees to offer practical advice, guidance and support to people involved in capacity planning and operational efficiency within the airport industry including hub, regional, low cost and pop up airports. The attendees also benefited from discussing their own airport planning and capacity management plans in a group environment, as well as looking into industry trends and insight into the relevance of data analysis.
