AiQ update

We don’t know about you but our feet have barely touched the ground in the last 12 months! After weathering the COVID storm we are pleased to have recovered well as a business and are now delighted to be making solid progress once again along with our clients.

We thought it might be useful to detail some of the projects AiQ are involved with to provide some scope on the range of work we can undertake. We continue to work for a variety of airports including Heathrow, Bristol, Schiphol and Farnborough. Our work at Heathrow is across a wide range of programmes, in fact we are involved with 6 of the current H7 programmes.

  • Efficient Airport
  • T2 Baggage
  • Carbon and Sustainability
  • Critical Asset Management and Compliance
  • Asset Replacement
  • Airfield Transport

Under the Heathrow Efficient Airport programme we have been working on a major project at T2 to implement check-in automation involving 29 airlines and 5 ground handlers as well as various suppliers and HAL teams. It is a multi-year project to realise capacity through check-in optimisation with a wide stakeholder remit.

We are currently working for the following Heathrow teams; Business Change, Infrastructure, PMO and Ops Planning. At Heathrow our work covers all terminals so we have an extensive operational knowledge of all the processes and terminals. We also have a wider knowledge than just terminals having previously worked in areas such as Snowbase, cargo and control posts so we are well versed at working with multiple stakeholders across different teams.

Following the recovery from the pandemic we are delighted to have just recruited a new Airport Planner, with an Airport Analyst also confirmed and set to join the team in June. We continue to have an office presence in the World Business Centre at Heathrow and a head office at Cranfield University Technology Park giving us close links to UAM, eVTOL and sustainable green technologies at Cranfield.

Last year we added EVie a fully electric car to our fleet to support our airside survey team, also coinciding with the renewal of our Heathrow 5 year airside operating license and our H7 framework agreement.

As you can see AiQ can provide a wide range of services including consulting, operational surveys, demand forecasting, capacity planning and carbon reduction.

If you see us landside or airside do stop and say hello, we’d love to grab a coffee and have a chat!
