For instance, the London Luton airport adopts a revolutionary system of collective pooling of equipment such as aircraft stairs, belt loaders, and others. This aids in reducing congestion and saving costs, while preventing aircraft delays. Additionally, stringent emission norms imposed by government agencies is driving the demand for sustainable and eco-friendly equipment that will contribute to the global ground support equipment market growth in the forthcoming years.
