Enhancing the Passenger Experience: Insights from ICF

What does enhancing the passenger experience truly mean? What actions can airport managers take to improve the passenger experience?

Airports, airlines, architectural and engineering firms, and third-party providers are not on the same page with what the concept of passenger experience really means. Today’s industry literature indicates that passenger experience is focused on new and innovative commercial offerings, airport branding, the creation of a sense of place, and digital engagement through new technology. However, too often airports focus on retail, passenger marketing, and communication but do not deliver on the efficient, uncongested and informed passenger path from the curb to the gate.

Lean Six Sigma to Reduce Aircraft Turnaround Time and Improve On-Time Performance

In the simplest terms, airlines need to maximize the value of their aircraft by increasing profits from time in the air while decreasing the costs and time on the ground. Efficient aircraft ground operations are fundamental to meeting customer service expectations and maximizing aircraft utilization. Unfortunately, the turnaround of a modern aircraft in a congested airport is a complex, cross-functional operation.

NextGen White Paper

We are in the midst of the most significant advancement in aviation technology in more than sixty years. NextGen (Next Generation Air Transportation System), the FAA’s airspace modernization program, is designed to overhaul the National Airspace System. This complex, multi-faceted air traffic system is a comprehensive transformation. The advancements that NextGen presents to the aviation community are on a scale surpassing even that which was provided by the introduction of Radar. 

This booklet examines the components of NextGen, why Performance-Based Navigation (PBN) functions are important for current and future operations, and how NextGen affects you as an aircraft owner/operator. The booklet also discusses the avionics technology available today and what is going to be needed in the future.

Flying Mexico Made Easy

For corporate (Pt 91 and Pt 135/121) aircraft flying into Mexico for the first time (or returning after a difficult previous trip), touchdown at the destination airport doesn’t necessarily mean the flight is back on solid ground. Missing or incorrectly filed documents, unanticipated charges and fees, or a misunderstanding of Customs/entry/multiple destination protocol and cabotage can spark or contribute to an interrupted and delayed trip.

Network Affordability in Manufacturing

Aerospace manufacturers at all tier levels supply parts to aircraft OEMs that intrinsically support flight safety. Whatever the destination/customer airframe, military or commercial, whatever the airline, whatever the size, building a safe, reliable product is of primary importance. At the same time, supplier companies must remain cost effective and protect their intellectual property.

Cockpit Considerations –Making the Case for Avionics Upgrades

Aging aircraft generate many issues, with none more pressing than the obsolescence of the cockpit avionics. In fact, if the flight deck is still equipped with vintage, electro-mechanical analog instruments or first-generation electronic flight instrument system (EFIS) suites, it may be time for the owner to consider upgrading to a state of the art digital flight deck.
