aircraft Turnaround Management

High transparency in aircraft Turnaround Management

In daily operations, airlines must achieve higher aircraft utilization to be profitable. Improving aircraft turnaround times requires precise and seamless coordination of all supporting processes around the flight. Failures and disruptions must be avoided or promptly managed. 

INFORM´s GroundStar provides transparency into your entire Aircraft Turnaround Management processes. Our software facilitates a real-time overview of all major clearance activities and provides quick intervention options to proactively avoid potential delays and disruptions. 

Deciding to perform a quick turnaround instead of a standard one or assigning more resources to a specific activity to expedite it, can be evaluated and implemented by the Turnaround Manager.

Take advantage of a smart solution that provides decision support for the analysis of both operational and financial impacts of disruptions.


  • Situational awareness of all turnaround processes. 
  • Early identification of bottlenecks, knock-on effects and mitigation options.
  • Reliable target off-block time calculation.
  • Cost model and decision support to reduce transfer times and save connections.
  • Improved on-time performance and reduced delay costs.
