Punctuality is one of the key measures in aviation, and turnround operations play a pivotal role in achieving on-time performance. With short time frames for ramp activities, they need to be well planned and executed to minimise unnecessary costs, achieve service standards, and avoid delays.


Our industrial engineering skills are well suited to improving turnround operations. Working with operations and turnround teams, we identify where ‘waste’ is present in existing processes, which tasks form the critical path, and how the sequence of activities can be better planned, organised and conducted.

We also provide the analytical expertise to give clients an indepth understanding of their ramp activities and the effect of dependent and sub-processes. Our modelling skills and tools help to improve the planning of ramp activities and manpower. Airports, airlines, and ground handlers benefit from our ability to design and deliver planned, controlled, and efficient turnround operations.
