Ground Operations Business Process Improvement:
Often overlooked as a key component of a Fuel Management effort, well-coordinated and efficient Ground Operations processes can have a significant impact on the overall fuel efficiency and schedule reliability of an airline. The impact can be direct in managing APU and GSE utilization in the aircraft turnaround process, as well as coordinating operations on the ground to minimize aircraft fuel consumption associated with taxi and ground delays. Indirectly, efficient ground operations contribute to airline schedule reliability, thereby minimizing the need to fly the aircraft at higher than optimal fuel-burn airspeeds to recover schedule.
Our Team can review every aspect of the aircraft ground servicing and movement control process to optimize the efficient use of scheduled ground time and minimize related fuel consumption.
