GSE Innovation: TaxiBot in the Americas

31 March 2022 12:15 - 13:00

The TaxiBot is a semi-robotic, pilot-controlled towing tractor and it’s heading for the Americas. The vehicle tows the aircraft close to the take off point, without running engines with an estimated 1200 tons of CO² saved.

This session will explore the plans to trial TaxiBot operations in Canada at Montreal Airport and set up a company called ‘Alternate Aeroworks Canada’ with plans to start trials in May this year.

How might the TaxiBot benefit airlines and ground handlers in the North American market and help cover up some of the losses they have gone through due to Covid-19?
