There is something magical about flying: the feeling of soaring above the world and exploring new horizons. But in the midst of this wonder, we sometimes forget that there is a team working tirelessly behind the scenes to make this feat possible.
Every day, no matter the time or destination, a team of Iberia Airport Services experts is dedicated to preparing the airline’s flights. It is they who ensure that each take-off is safe and efficient, a task that requires meticulous dedication and preparation.
Blas Acosta, Iberia’s ground services coordinator, knows that the success of a flight depends to a large extent on the coordination and care taken behind the scenes. His team receives each aircraft, prepares it meticulously and makes sure that everything is in optimal condition before loading fuel, food, and finally boarding the passengers. In addition, they have state-of-the-art computerised systems that allow them to have real-time information on the location of travellers and their luggage.
Over the course of the last year, Iberia Airport Services has implemented a series of innovative electrical equipment at various airports, with the aim of reducing its carbon footprint and improving both the performance and safety of its workers. Among these advanced tools is the mototok, an innovative technology that allows for more efficient aircraft handling, reducing its impact on the environment.
The company currently aims to achieve net zero emissions by 2025 and to electrify 80% of its fleet in the coming years. This noble and ambitious goal represents a significant step in the fight against climate change in the aviation sector, which will translate into a cleaner and safer future for all.
