Aviation Sector Capability

VERITAS has highly knowledgeable and experienced Senior Aviation Sector Consultants with extensive policy, strategic planning and operations advisory experience gained from the aviation industry and also from working within government and with regulatory authorities.

We can apply this extensive knowledge and experience to the development of initial concept of operations, detailed operational planning, design and operation of key aviation assets, ensuring these are utilized efficiently, in accordance with the primacy of maintaining aviation safety standards and all regulatory requirements.

We have the capacity and capability to assist with the development and management of airport, airline operations and ATC air traffic flow management (ATFM) principles. This knowledge and experience translates into a unique capability that enables us to:

  • Assist airport operators to collaboratively plan and manage the strategic and operational aspects of aircraft movements through an airport to maximise utilisation of the airport asset infrastructure;
  • Develop and effectively implement ATFM systems, including associated business rules and procedures, to deliver efficiencies in both airport operations and utilisation of aircraft assets;
  • Assist air traffic service agencies to collaboratively work with government, regulatory authorities, airport owners/operators, aviation, and other relevant stakeholders to strategically, pre-tactically and tactically maximise the safe and efficient flow of air traffic through an airport and its associated airspace in accordance with ICAO Guidelines and regulatory requirements; and
  • Assist airline operators in ensuring they can effectively plan and operate efficient and profitable services that meet the needs of their customers and interested parties.
