Never a dull moment...

There is never a dull moment for airside operations teams at an airport. One minute you are carrying out a routine runway inspection, the next you are managing contractors engaged in airside works; or providing follow-me services for a lost aircraft in low visibility; or checking obstacles; or ensuring safe stand operations for a routine turn around; or investigating a safety incident; or removing a wildlife hazard; or responding to a full scale emergency. It’s all in a day’s work!

To successfully manage the busiest airports an airside team requires the highest standards of training and the competence to carrying out safety critical tasks in an efficient manner. It requires expert management, robust operating procedures and constant monitoring and improvement of performance.
