Airport consultancy services
The company provides consultancy services to airport and civil aviation authorities, concessionaires and international development banks.
ACI’s airport design consultants perform feasibility studies, as well as re-construction and development plan reviews to support capital investment decision makers.
Master plan reviews and updates are also offered to support a client’s mission statement and strategic airport development planning.
Airport analysis for development
ACI carries out studies covering a range of areas, including airport due diligence, re-construction and development, airport infrastructure mitigation and capacity enhancement, terminal area and cargo city development, multimodal transport hubs, construction phasing, and public-private partnership (PPP) technical structuring.
Programming, airport design and engineering services are offered to stakeholders for the conception and elaboration of airside, terminal and landside operations and utility buildings.
State-of-the-art airport consultancy concepts
ACI provides dedicated consultancy services to organisations running small to medium-sized airports.
The company has introduced an IT-based, state-of-the-art airport consultancy concept, known as the airport terminal monitor (ATM).
Delivering instant results, this valuable interactive tool has been developed for the aviation industry using the in-house expertise embedded within airport organisations.
Master plan studies, land use and terminal area development planning
ACI offers master planning services for small and medium-sized airports.
The services consist of updates and reviews to assess airport capacity and operations performance, and reserve land for unrestrictive expansion of airport infrastructure, operations and facilities, utilities and commercial development.
Master plan studies are also performed to anticipate traffic forecasts in the short, medium, and long-term.
Airport due diligence studies assess the current state and capacity of airports’ infra-structure, facilities and utilities for airport development and investment plans.
ACI also performs re-construction and development studies to fuel investment programmes that support the upgrade of existing airport applications, in compliance with international standards.
Airport infrastructure mitigation studies reveal bottlenecks in departure and arrival flows, as well as suggest temporary and cost-effective measures to enhance the handling capacity of the weakest links to secure ongoing operations.
Passenger terminal and cargo handling area development studies are sub-studies detailing the related facilities, including landside and airside development.
Multimodal transport hub studies connect the pick-up and drop-off points of different modes of public and private transport offered to and from the airport, such as cars, buses, taxis, and trains.
Airport construction phasing studies show intermediate measures during construction in order to secure handling capacity and ongoing airport operations.
Airport PPP technical structuring studies include the delivery of a current state report, development planning, construction phasing and capital expenditure.
Airport facilities sizing and programming, design and engineering services
Facility sizing is offered for all types and sizes of terminals, assessing the total gross floor area, a detailed functional breakdown of its parts and the expected footprint.
Deliverables can be used for capital expenditure (CAPEX) projections fuelling airport expansion investment plans, and can be used as a solid basis for terminal programming.
ACI offers programming, design and engineering services for a range of facilities, such as passenger and cargo terminals, rescue and fire fighting (RFF) and air traffic control (ATC) towers.
It also supports facilities for airport and ground support equipment (GSE) maintenance, airport security, airport authority, airline crew, in-flight catering, and aircraft maintenance and handling.
ACI provides system interface management services, which manage the coherence and consistency of airport development design programmes and deliverables executed by different consultancies for airfield, airport terminal, and landside facilities.
