Operational Readiness and Airport Transition (ORAT) is the aviation industry’s best-practice methodology for opening new airports, terminals, and facilities. ORAT works directly on behalf of the airport client.

The breadth of topics within ORAT can be significant and it requires close cooperation between multiple teams of capable people on issues big and small.

The Airfield and Terminal ORAT programme methodology are vital to the successful opening of any airport. daa International has extensive experience with ORAT delivery at major international airports. daa Group completed all ORAT activities in house for both the opening of the new terminal at Cork Airport in 2006, and the opening of Dublin Airport Terminal 2 in 2009. daa International were involved in the ORAT of KKIA Terminal 5, working with the building contractor to ensure readiness for operations.

With this ORAT experience, we will implement a robust ORAT process that ensures your airport will open on time, with the right infrastructure and systems in place, with trained and competent colleagues, and clear confidence that the operating model works.
