Get ready for the world’s safest method to push or pull an aircraft, with unrivalled universal application. The emission-free revolution in ground handling will be introduced to the market at inter-airport Europe in Munich, Germany, October 8-11.

Every day there are more than 100.000 flights worldwide. Doubling of airport traffic within the next 15 years is a major challenge for airport logistics. The annual world airport traffic forecast predicts that flight passenger traffic growth will continue to rise at a consistent, average rate of 4.5% year-on-year. Industry figures suggest that this could mean annual passenger numbers reach 10.9 billion international travelers and 11.3 billion domestic passengers by 2040.

With passenger growth increasing so significantly, what can airports do to meet this rising demand especially on airport logistics? More passengers means more aircraft in the same space. But how can they handle that?

One key to success is to improve the aircraft pushback and towing process. Today, different concepts are implemented at airports around the world: tow-bar-less towing with numerous tugs to cover all narrow- and widebody-aircraft, or towing with a tug and a tow-bar, for instance. Both methods are space and cost-intensive, because of the necessary variety of equipment.

How can the Emover make money for you?

Using the emover will lead to:

  • Reduced quantity of required tugs
  • Minimal operating costs (no fuel)
  • Minimal maintenance costs
  • One-man operation effects low staff costs
  • Long time durability
