Aviramp is an independent, entrepreneurial business led by CEO Graham Corfield THE CHALLENGE WAS TO PROVIDE AN INNOVATIVE PRODUCT TO CHANGE AVIATION GROUND HANDLING AND DELIVER A NEW INDUSTRY STANDARD

So the Aviramp was developed and grew advocacy from all corners of the world, from airlines, airports, ground handling compainies and PRM providers. UK based airline Easyjet facilitated trials and tests to ensure the concept could deliver against its core criteria: to improve safety, to achieve greater operational efficiency, and lastly to create a better, more inclusive passenger experience for everyone. Our customers are literally globally based, and our products fully operational across the sector in multi markets including the UK, Europe, USA, the Caribbean, Japan, Australia, Scandinavia and the Middle East. Full credentials and testimonials reinforce the impact Aviramp is having on aviation operations.

COMPANY HISTORY

The Aviramp remote stand walk through boarding bridge was driven by a request from Oslo Airport's PRM providers some time ago. They recognised the need for change primarily down to their concerns for the 'passenger experience' and their desire to give dignity back to the disabled and the elderly, who were forced to use antiquated GSE equipment such as ambulift. Although there are many types of GSE equipment currently available, Aviramp has delivered a world first with its customised suite of patented products and remote stand walk through boarding bridges.
