Alongside Richard Chapman of ADC (Airport Design Consult), Director of AIQ Consulting, Adrian Todd , undertook a training course in Kuala Lumpur in October 2016 offering practical advice, guidance and support to Airport Senior Managers, Airport Consultants and Airport Capacity Analysts involved in capacity planning and operational efficiency within the airport industry.
Using AiQ’s experience in airports such as Heathrow, Gatwick, Hyderabad, Manchester and Birmingham to explore the key aspects of Airport Capacity Management (ACM), eight attendees from four key aviation organistaions and airports in India and Indonesia benefited from personalised airport capacity management plans. The course also looked into industry trends and insight into the relevance of data analysis.
Adrian Todd explains “We brought the AiQ team together to capitalise on their experience and success in the airport industry. Our consultants, airport planners, engineering physicists, and simulation engineers work hard to deliver cost effective and efficient capacity solutions and models, tailored to the client’s requirements.”
“As a creative thinker, I use my wealth of business, capacity planning and engineering experience to realise capacity and deliver intelligent solutions. Delivering this course to such a high profile audience gave me the opportunity to give back my expertise and knowledge to the aviation industry at a higher level. ”
The Airport Capacity Management Course, facilitated by TruEventUs, was designed 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.
“Adrian Todd and Richard Chapman composed the syllabus of such a vast topic in a very crisp, interesting & informative way… well presented and composed.”
It was extremely well received by attendees, who highlighted the focused approach, wealth of knowledge and excellent coaches. As well as exploring the key aspects and elements of ACM, the course, based on IATA and ICAO standards, provided an understanding of its relevance within variety of operations including terminal, apron and baggage. Attendees learnt how to manage demand peaks and troughs including busy holiday 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.
