ASSET – Aeronautic Study on Seamless Transport

Objective

Airport ground processes still conceal a considerable potential for improvement of time efficiency. Recent studies from Eurocontrol Performance Review Commission prove that insufficient punctuality in air transport results mainly from variance in off-block times. This leads to poor predictability and sizeable inefficiencies throughout the whole air transport system. Aim of proposed project is to develop and assess solutions for airport process improvement in terms of time efficiency regarding both, passenger process and aircraft turnaround in an integrated approach. Therefore, representatives of nearly all directly or indirectly involved stakeholders (airports, airlines, aircraft manufacturers, technological suppliers, security service providers etc.) gathered to work conjointly on this project. Elaboration of potential solutions will comprise compilation of currently discussed solution approaches (e.g. CDM, Total Airport Management etc.) as well as development of new opportunities focussing on three main process chains: 1) passenger processes 2) baggage processes 3) aircraft turnaround processes Emphasis is placed on identifying those solutions achieving the most promising target contribution instead of going into details of a certain approach. Each solution – first particular and in a later phase integrated solution scenarios – deemed expedient, become assessed by dint of simulating characteristic traffic scenario into two generic airport reference models. These airport models are assigned to represent a hub airport (with a substantial part of connecting passengers) and a medium-sized airport (point-to-point and low-cost traffic), defined and generated in the context of this project. Suchlike models are lacking so far and could actually be used for other projects and assessments. Outcome will be a ranking list specifying most promising solutions as basis for future development, reference models and a systematic scheme for future airport assessments.
