The pressure on ground handling procedures has never been greater. As airport traffic rises and passengers’ demands for a stress-free, on-time performance grow, airports and ground handlers must take steps to ensure that their services are effective, as well as cost and capacity efficient.
Damage caused to aircraft during ground handling is reported to cost airlines nearly $4 billion annually. Staggeringly, the total cost to the aviation industry globally is thought to be more than double that figure, according to a recent report by International Airport Review. To begin to reduce this cost to the aviation industry, IATA has recently introduced Ground Support Equipment (GSE) Standards that require the fitting of proximity sensing and warning systems to GSE.
