Tool helps airlines out of RATT race

 - November 11, 2007, 7:21 PM

A new tool from London Gatwick-based Avtura (Stand W332F) can help airlines manage aircraft turnarounds and optimize the time between landing and takeoff. Used on a “ruggedized” hand-held computer, the Real-time Aircraft Turnaround Tool (RATT) provides what the company describes as a complete, real-time overview of all turnaround-related information, including pushback and towing, fueling, catering, cleaning, cargo, baggage, load plans, passenger buses, crew, boarding and security. A tailored individual flight profile automatically alerts the user to any critical events.
