ERA’s Current Position

ERA continues to monitor any regulatory proposals regarding ground handling.

The Directorate regularly attends the UK’s Ground Handling Operations Safety Team (GHOST), a multi-disciplined group set up by the UK Civil Aviation Authority and industry stakeholders to mitigate the safety risks from ground handling along with the support of numerous activities.  The group agrees approaches which could be in the form of a new high profile initiative or project, and provides clarity or enhanced guidance to an existing regulation, policy or procedure.


Latest update 30/10/2018: The 43rd meeting of GHOST was held at Manchester Airport on 2 August 2018. The meeting covered numerous ground handling issues, including updates from the GHOST subgroups, winter operations, ground handling regulations, safety initiatives from Swissport and a safety ‘swap shop’. The ‘meeting pack’ is available to view via the Downloads section.
