The performance of an airline - based on factors such as punctuality, reliability and service - essentially depends on a good plan of the relevant turnaround processes in advance. The flights must not only be viable, but the plan also needs to be robust. At the same time, planning must make the best possible use of all existing resources in order to save costs.


Ground operations mean coordinating a virtually endless number of processes. Disruptions are part of the daily business. Unpredictable external changes and operational irregularities often need to be resolved within seconds. Any disruption in a single process may immediately cause delays in multiple other processes. Some may call this complexity beyond control. We don‘t. We know it is your daily business.

We understand planning as a demand calculation and optimized demand coverage for stands & terminal, staff & equipment.
