How can airports maintain safe, efficient ground handling operations through winter?
Weather and climate have significant impacts on airport operations. Harsh weather conditions cause millions of dollars of damage each year, and cause disruption. The build-up of snow, ice, and slush affects aircraft access to runways, and risks disruption to ground handling services on aprons. While the weather cannot be controlled, airports do have solutions available to mitigate its impact.
How do in-ground systems benefit airports?
As the rate of passenger growth accelerates, and pressure to reduce costs and increase revenues intensifies, airports face significant operational challenges. IATA forecasts that more than 7.2 billion passengers will travel in 2035, doubling from 3.8 billion in 2016.
