Hi devs and everyone.
I have seen some posts regarding the huge turnaround times of aircraft, but the request was to lower the turn around time. I think that the turn around time should be flexible and the CEO should decide the turnaround time for each aircraft type. (I hope I have not missed any post with this idea)
Turnaround time is dependent of aircraft size, infrastructure provided (boarding desks, number of security checks, etc.), Time for passenger to travel from check in to boarding gate, remote/contact stand, airside facilities (fuel truck or fuel hydrant, etc.). So the CEO has to decide the time for each aircraft.
For example, if in my airport I have one remote stand and one contact stand (with aero bridge) then the time for boarding the contact aircraft will be less, so I should be able to reduce the turnaround time of aircraft in my contact stand compared to remote stand, this way I will optimise my schedule of airport.
This way I can take benefits of improving the infrastructure. Like upgrading to medium security stands from small security stand will increase rate of processing of passengers and so the overall turnaround time can be modified.
Ofcourse, we should give some minimum turnaround time for each aircraft type (small -45 min, medium - 2hr, large - 3hrs) which can be achieved with high end infrastructure.
