The ground handling team is made up of staff who perform a wide range of functions including:
- Ramp handling: guiding the plane into position and operating
- Servicing vehicles on the tarmac
- Refuelling and maintenance of the aircraft
- Clearing of the cabin and restocking of the catering supplies
- Check-in and boarding at the terminal gate
