Spring 2024

Welcome to the Spring 2024 edition of Airside International in which we kickstart the year with dynamic coverage of ground support equipment electrification, the leasing-rental markets, industry developments in sustainable aviation fuel and a new 4F-class airport hoping to transform Cambodia’s aviation industry.

We speak with RAM Handling about the evolving dynamics of the GSE market and learn from one former GSE procurement executive about the need to invest in new, rather than relying on old, equipment in this post-pandemic era.

Mike Bryant conducts interviews with TLD, JBT AeroTech and Textron GSE, looking at the industry’s emphasis on electrifying their fleets. Further, he addresses leasing-rental equipment aspects with TCR, Aviaco and HiSERV.

This edition also features Megan Ramsay’s coverage of new developments in ground power units and air start units, showcasing companies such as ITW GSE, Dynell, Guinault, Inovair and more.
Meanwhile, I explore the construction of a new airport close to Phnom Penh which is set to be the ninth largest in the world once operational from 2025.
