AVTURA’s Real-time Aircraft Turnaround Tool (RATT™) ensures efficient and effective management and co-ordination of the aircraft arrival, turnaround and departure process in real-time. RATT enables ground handlers, airlines and airports to improve their management of personnel, equipment and third party contractors and deliver results.

The RATT utilises the latest mobile data collection technology and advanced communications devices including ruggedised Personal Digital Assistants (PDA), WLAN and GPRS Communications. A web-based management and data analysis interface provides a clear and concise real-time view of your operation to Management, Operations Controllers, Passenger Services and Ramp personnel. Avtura’s unique and effortless RATT user interface allows all your personnel to use the system with minimal training or experience.

The RATT captures a time stamp of all turnaround services, including push back and towing, fuelling, catering, cleaning, cargo, baggage, load plans, crew, passenger buses and boarding, giving you a complete overview of all turnaround information in real time. A tailored individual flight profile based on carrier, flight number, aircraft type, registration, configuration, and stand/gate runs throughout the turnaround process alerting you to any critical events that may affect an on-time departure. These events are colour-coded to highlight any areas of concern or potential problems and are graduated to show the importance and impact of any overdue event. This allows the Dispatcher/Turnaround Coordinator to pro-actively manage the flight and ensure all services are carried out on-time every time. RATT helps you maximise revenue, enhance the efficiency of airside operations and On-Time Performance, and reduce delays, ground time, and costs.

All real-time information for each flight is also available to supervising personnel in operations control so as to give an overall real-time graphical operational picture which allows for proactive and efficient management of the entire operation.

The RATT data collection and analysis service stores all operational data for future evaluation. Reports are generated to bolster quality control, performance monitoring, trend analysis, process re-design, monitoring of third-party service level agreements and accurate billing of scheduled and ad-hoc services, improving your contract management. The RATT is also able to minimise operational risk and down time by integrating with existing operational software, including resource planning systems,
