IATA ground handling meet spells out priorities to build resilience



IATA highlighted three priorities to enable ground handling to build resilience and ensure long-term sustainability. The priorities were outlined at the 35th IATA Ground Handling Conference (IGHC), which opened in Abu Dhabi on Tuesday. “It is going to be a busy peak Northern Hemisphere summer travel season for the aviation industry, and the ground handling sector will need to be prepared. We must act fast to prepare for increased traffic. Ensuring efficient onboarding of new employees and working with governments to reduce bottlenecks in security clearances is critical. In the longer term, staff recruitment and retention, implementing global standards and accelerating digitalization and automation will be critical to build resilience and ensure sustainability,” said Monika Mejstrikova, Director, Ground Operations, IATA.
