The training provisions contained in the new Term 5.6 contain the knowledge by trade agents of rules and regulations as a minimum and cross-reference to IATA materials in point 5.3. SGHA 2018 has crystallized broader audit rights in accordance with Clause 5.9, in order to allow other air carriers in an IATA audit pool to control the handling company in favour of this pool. Currently, there are 37 airlines within the ISAGO Audit Pool, which can benefit from joint audit reports for the same handler at a given airport.

Most airlines are thinner and thinner. Many airlines provide airport dock assistance services, stopover assistance agents or even another airline. According to the International Air Transport Association (IATA), conservative estimates suggest that airlines relocate more than 50% of stopover assistance to airports around the world.  Stopover assistance meets the many service requirements of a commercial aircraft between the arrival of a terminal and the departure of the next flight. Speed, efficiency and accuracy are important for ground-handling services to minimize transit time (the time the aircraft must remain parked at the gate).  Faster rotations for lower ground times are correlated with better gains.  Airlines with less frequent service or resources on a given site may provide ground-duty assistance or maintenance services to another airline, as this is a more favourable short-term alternative to the development of their own ground-handling or maintenance capabilities. A carrier`s insolvency can also have greater consequences. The British CAA suspended Monarch Airlines` AOC when it went bankrupt in October 2017 and forced it to cease operations with immediate effect.
They no longer needed stopover assistance services. The 38th edition of the IATA Airport Handling Manual (AHM) is now live. The AHM contains the most recent iteration of the SGHA, which reflects the evolution of aviation and more broadly, and which results from the consultation and contribution of airlines, handling companies and other players in the sector.
