A-ICE at the Annual Ground Handling International Conference (GHI) 2018

This year, the 20th Annual Ground Handling International (GHI) Conference will be held at Gothia Towers, Gothenburg from 26th-29th November, and will offer attendees a fantastic opportunity to network with over 750 aviation industry decision-makers from around the world.

A-ICE will be there, joining more than 60 exhibitors at GHI this year, and showcasing its innovative suite of airport solutions to deliver seamless ground handling and passenger reconciliation to global airports of all sizes.

At the conference

The 20th GHI conference is set to take off on day one with ‘The 20/20 Vision’ debate, focussing on the sector’s greatest challenges and opening discussion about how to meet them head-on to ensure a thriving future for the ground handling market. This will be an excellent opener for the conference, which will encourage further debate over the four-day event about other issues surrounding GSE pooling, passengers with reduced mobility, contracts and much more.

Keynote speakers will address audiences about safety and standardisation, airports automation and the one-man turnaround system, and discuss contract and financial issues, including negotiation, market outlook, European regional collaboration, whether the ultra LCC ground handling model is still viable in today’s market.

Delegates will be kept busy throughout the conference, and with lunch meeting opportunities and scheduled networking sessions, ground handling representatives and airport management teams simply cannot afford to miss out this year.

Streamlined baggage handling and reconciliation

A-BRS provides the answer to baggage reconciliation and handling with an integrated, automated solution that allows airports and airlines to meet mandatory compliance with IATA R753 through seamless baggage tracking and reconciliation. A real-time data management option is also available for peak airport flow times when passenger demand is increased.

Using the A-BLI Baggage Loopback Interface, local departing baggage data issued from DCS or CUTE systems sent to AEA-compliant baggage tag printers can be effectively captured with guaranteed data interpretation.

A-ICE also offers compliance and enhanced control through its A-ODB database solution, which becomes a centralised hub for seamless systems integration. Enhanced security assures compliance and greater operational productivity is gained via highly-available, real-time and service-related data storage, distribution and accessibility.

The specific ground handling database, A-HDB, is a powerful solution for real-time flight and service-related data, providing a streamlined, central database that holds all the data to enable identification of potential ground delays.
