Avtura Limited the UK-based company responsible for the Real-time Aircraft Turnaround Tool (RATT™) have entered into an MOU with Improformance Partners Pty Ltd of Sydney, Australia for implementation of a Reseller agreement for Avtura’s RATT™ product in Australia and New Zealand.

The Avtura RATT™ is an application used on a ruggedised hand held computer which allows airlines to manage aircraft turnarounds and optimise the time between an aircraft landing and taking-off.

The Avtura RATT™ provides a complete, real-time overview of all turnaround related information, including push back and towing, fuelling, catering, cleaning, cargo, baggage, load plans, passenger buses, crew, boarding and security. A tailored individual flight profile runs throughout the turnaround process automatically alerting the user to any critical events which may affect an on-time departure. These events are graduated to show the importance and impact of any overdue event, allowing the Dispatcher/Turnaround Coordinator to manage the operation efficiently ensuring a safe and punctual departure.

“With spiraling costs and greater competition amongst airlines, the turnaround is critical. Every minute counts; every minute costs. ” Christopher Meeking, CEO of Avtura said. “This relationship with Improformance will enable us to extend our market reach to support the expanding Australasia region. We at Avtura are very excited to be working with such a dynamic and forward thinking team at Improformance and look forward to this being the start of a long and successful relationship.”

Peter Heidegger, Director of Improformance said “I believe that there is a real synergy between Improformance and Avtura and that both companies will benefit greatly from this relationship. We at Improformance are already working with several of the main carriers in the region and see huge potential for the RATT™ product, and with the enthusiasm, confidence and professional approach of Improformance and Avtura we will both be able to leverage considerable benefit from this relationship.”
