It has been statistically proved around the globe that one of the most sensitive moments for aircraft happen during ground operations; therefore, it is critical to make permanent effort in order to take care and reduce damage to aircraft, to ground support equipment and at the same time, to ensure the integrity of the staff involved.

Also, during the audit, revision was applied to GSE’s maintenance processes and to the administrative procedures which stand as part of the company’s management system; so that all the processes’ ultimate goal is to keep the safety standards requested by the industry.

This action is aligned with the safety requirements and updates of all airlines and allows to obtain safer procedures and at the same time, to hold a better understanding and knowledge of high-risk areas.
