Now that the aviation industry is thankfully well on the road to recovery following the massive disruption of the pandemic we are glad to be in the position of taking a look forward at future challenges rather than back, and anticipating what lies ahead this summer.
It has been encouraging to see various industry bodies making forecasts of a complete and sustainable recovery and a growth in air passenger demand in 2023.
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.
We’re delighted to welcome Charlotte Holter to the AiQ Airport Planning team. Charlotte graduated from Leeds University with a First Class Honours degree in Aviation Technology with Pilot Studies and has obtained her Private Pilots Licence. She has worked for Jet2.com at Leeds Bradford Airport in Customer Support – Landside and Airside and also at TUI as an Airline Operations Controller. Most recently she worked as the Operations Manager for Cranfield Flying School.

A hungry child cannot concentrate so could miss out on half a day of lessons every school day if not given anything nutritious to eat first thing.
In our third and final blog in our series on airport automation we discuss the ways in which airports and airlines can make use of smarter new technology solutions. As referenced in our previous blogs Star Alliance has defined an approach to newer technology solutions that are now being introduced, shown in the graphic below, which focuses on:
