World Leading Operational Readiness & Airport Transfer Summit!

The advancement of technology, incorporation of innovative processes and airlines offering additional layover options has resulted in an increase of air passenger traffic and aircraft movements at the airport. However, as airport outgrow their ageing facilities, new terminals or airports facilities are required to accommodate growing demands.

There are numerous challenges associated with setting up a new airport or terminal that is designed to accommodate double or triple the capacity the current location is holding. The management of these issues has led to the formation of Operational Readiness and Airport Transfer (ORAT) team to bridge the gap between planning, construction and achieving perfect operational readiness before the airport opening date.

Successful transition with minimal teething problems is achievable with detailed planning, high commitment level from all stakeholders and comprehensive ORAT plans. Join renowned airport operators who have been through ORAT process and successfully prepared for commencement of daily operations at new airport facility at ORAT Summit 2017 in Singapore! Taking place on 12 – 15 September 2017, the conference will focus on sharing key lessons learned and best practices in improving availability and readiness of equipment and systems, improving staff’s preparedness to familiarize working in new airport facilities which will ensure your airport is ready by airport opening date.
