What is key to managing Workforces at Airports?

Aviation is a highly competitive, low margin industry. Airports want to guarantee safety and security and offer their travelers excellent service for the lowest possible price. When preparing schedules for your employees in security, cleaning, technical facilities and other services, you have to take into account a wide range of processes, complex legislation and a great variety of labor agreements. How do you ensure that the schedules are optimal, while keeping to the budget and taking the personnel’s preferences and skills into account?

The main challenge in airports, is to manage the complexity of:

  • A variety of facilitating services with their own restrictions and needs due to the labor itself
  • A variety of restrictions due to the different applicable Collective Labor Agreements or laws
  • A large flexible workforce during the peak seasons
  • Complex schedules which often run 24/7 and are regularly interdependent
  • The support of an airtight security system
