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.

Join us at ORAT WORLD SUMMIT 2018 if you are:

  • Planning to construct a new airport
  • Planning for a terminal expansion project
  • In the midst of preparing for your Airport Opening Date (AOD)

ORAT WORLD SUMMIT is taking place in London, UK on the 26 – 29 June 2018. The four-day conference will focus on newly completed airport projects and terminal expansion projects happening around the world. Renowned airport operators who have been through ORAT process and successfully prepared for commencement of daily operations at the new airport facility will be sharing with you the lessons learned on the different stages of ORAT and the best practices to ensure you plan for a successful transition with minimal problems with real-life examples on how they managed the most challenging issues faced during the two years before the Airport Opening Date.
