This blog shall outline the research activities that are conducted in the area of Aircraft Turnaround Management by Technische Universität Dresden, Germany, and which is partly funded by the HALA! Network.

The turnaround (TA) marks the beginning and end of the “gate-to-gate” approach linking two flight legs of an aircraft. Since it is a time critical process with several sub-processes running sequential and in parallel, it is often a significant contributor to delays in air traffic operations.
