Apron & GSE

What happens on the ramp has an immediate effect on passenger, baggage and aircraft processing. Flights can only leave on time when everything runs smoothly and efficiently, so all activities and movements on the ramp need to be closely coordinated.


GATE member companies are directly involved, either by providing equipment, vehicles and personnel, or in a consulting capacity.
