This study focuses on handling times of turn round cycles and on the adjustments of airports and processes in order to get ready for the A380. Turn round time (TRT) is defined as the time spent between arrival and departure at a handling facility or gate. First, analyses were done on current aircraft handling processes and whether these could be used for the A380. The study then focuses on alternative handling methods for the A380, and recommendations are made.
