Airline Ground Services: the Aviation Quarterly with its Ear to the Ground

Airline Ground Services, one of the publications from aviation news publishers EVA International (www.evaint.com), is the only aviation quarterly to cover comprehensively the full diversity of services airlines can now avail themselves of whilst in the airport environment. The publication reports on news and issues surrounding the services procured by airlines on the ground, such as ground handling on the ramp, passenger handling and baggage handling; but it is also a key resource for features on refuelling, line maintenance, catering, IT, cabin repair and cleaning.

Airlines are now outsourcing a much wider array of ground services than ever before, both on the ramp and inside the terminal building. Recession has brought with it the desire for many airlines to optimise balance sheets, reduce inventories of ground support equipment and IT-enable processes to drive efficiencies through their organisations. On the other hand, some airlines have developed an insourced ground handling strategy, associating their brand with their customers’ experiences on the ground and thereby refusing to let go of these very important airline ground operations. The diverse approach to airline ground services are all reflected in the newly updated Airline Ground Services publication (formerly titled Airline Handling International).

The quarterly from leading aviation news company EVA International includes up-to-the-minute airline industry news, focus features on issues affecting the world of airline ground services and insightful interviews with heads of procurement at all types of airlines, from budget and regional to charter, scheduled and cargo.

Airline Ground Services is one of three key aviation publications from magazine publishers and exhibition organisers EVA International.
