Keeping your airport operating
As part of our ATS management offering we provide a range of additional services. These are designed to keep your airport operating with the highest standards of safety and efficiency.
Operational efficiency cells
These cells are composed of groups of people who have a direct link to all stakeholders, for instance Air Traffic Control (ATC) and Operations teams. Their role is to join up all the airport functions to enable them to operate smoothly together. Our ATC expertise and knowledge of the airport ‘network’ enables us to provide optimal airport efficiency and to reduce delays.
We have a range of tried-and-tested procedures to make sure your business carries on in times of crisis or emergency. These range from reinforcement of staffing at units to unique Critical Incident Stress Management arrangements, which are highly effective in returning staff to work after an incident.
Where it’s essential for ATC services to continue without interruption, we provide contingent operations. These normally require additional control facilities, such as a remote tower, which can get these services up and running within an hour.
Our experience of the airport environment and tactical knowledge of the ATC operation enables us to provide a highly effective stand planning service as well as many other related airfield operational requirements. These can often be rolled out cost-effectively using existing ATC systems and personnel.
