In June this year Safegate Group and Lahore Allama Iqbal International Airport signed a contract to work together towards weather proofing the airport in only 12 months. The objective is being able to land aircraft in low visibility before the winter, and by May 2016 to handle 25 movements per hour. A project as complex as this can easily take 5 years to implement. To to do it in only 12 months’ time is unheard of. Until now! We spoke with Jesper Svensson, General Manager SafePerformance for Safegate Group about how this is possible.
Today’s Airports contain a complex network of stakeholders. Often these stakeholders have efficient management and communication strategies within their respective departments. However, inefficiencies that hamper productivity and performance can be created when these stakeholders interface with other departments and external organisations. If a holistic approach is to be implemented, a philosophy of “One Airport – One Process” needs to be adopted.
