Synthesis of Information Related to Airport Practices. Topic S01-29. Airport Practices for Onboarding a New Passenger Airline

The starting of new service by an airline requires advanced planning and coordination to have a launch day and ongoing success. From an airport's side of the partnership, the number of people and/or departments involved may vary on airport size and organizational structure. Preparing for a new airline can include discussions/providing information on available lease space for different airline functions (baggage, operations, etc.); policies and procedures for ticket counters, hold rooms, ramp, baggage make-up, etc.; landside, operating restrictions or potential hazards (wingspan restricted gates, etc.); emergency preparedness, and numerous other considerations. The objective of this synthesis is to describe diverse airport practices and approaches of how airport staff prepare to onboard a new passenger airline.
