Guiding

Brake man

Guiding aircraft precisely and safely within a limited amount
of time between arrival and departure

Marshalling is the operation to guide aircraft from the taxiway to a specified parking position.
We play the role of navigator for the landing of aircraft, by accurately guiding the aircraft to
the parking position using arm signals, while maintaining eye contact with the pilot. We also
tow and push back the huge body of an aircraft. When an aircraft is towed, the brake man
operates the brake of the aircraft in the cockpit. Aircraft are not designed to move back on
their own and have many blind spots due to their size. It is an important task to move aircraft
to the parking point precisely and safely. This role is played only by employees with
specialist knowledge on the arm signals to pilots and the verification of aircraft safety.
Special-purpose vehicles are indispensable for properly towing aircraft, which weigh more than
300 tons. Towing cars and other vehicles that you will not encounter on the streets are always
running about here. The qualifications for driving such special vehicles, as well as the
professional specialist knowledge and experience for ground support operations, are required.

BHS Control

Controlling a baggage handling system (BHS)

Realizing safe and sure control utilizing airport transport technologies
specialized in baggage handling

Mechanical systems including conveyers are essential to handle passenger baggage and cargo
in a safe and speedy manner. Kansai International Airport introduced an automatic baggage
handling system (BHS) to sort and convey huge amount of baggage in a safe, sure and speedy
manner. Our BHS controlling staff is responsible for the operation, management and
maintenance of this advanced system. Thorough control over operation is necessary for the
BHS, because it consists of such multiple components as conveyers, sorters and other sorting
equipment. Employees positioned at the intensive observation center monitor the movement of
baggage day and night. We maintain the system to prevent defects from occurring and thus
realize an intensive support system.

Reporting to pilot

Understanding the weight of fuel, cargo and baggage
to support safe aircraft operation

A massive amount of baggage and cargo are loaded on passenger carriers and cargo aircrafts.
We are responsible for their adjustment, which is required for safe aircraft operation. The most
important task is balancing the weight of the aircraft, which is known as “Weight and Balance.”
Considering the weight of fuel, baggage and cargo, as well as the number of passengers, we
adjust and decide the amount and position of the cargo to be loaded to ensure that the aircraft
flies while maintaining the most appropriate balance. The weight and adjustment method differ
from type to type. Skills appropriate for each aircraft type are required. Understanding of
complicated calculation formulas and abundant experience are required. Decision making
capacity and flexibility to respond to changes in takeoff and landing schedules are also
important. It is both clerical work and field operation at the same time.

Preparing amenities

Providing the in-flight amenities that are indispensable for comfortable travel 
and producing an uplifting feeling of comfort in the air

When passengers take their seats in the cabin, the first things they pay attention are amenities
such as magazines, headsets, blankets and eye masks. We sort and prepare amenities before
they are loaded onto the aircraft. As the composition of an amenity set differs according to the
airline, class, time of day and flight route, a wide variety of goods are stored in the warehouse
in the airport. We control inventory and sort items carefully to avoid errors in number and
choice. When they are carried to the side of the aircraft, our preparation process is completed.
When the flight is chartered for entertainment purposes, a limited version of such items is
prepared to provide a pleasant surprise for and to enhance the excitement of passengers. It is
work that produces an uplifting feeling of comfort in the air.

night in the dubbing room in the airport and prepare the tapes to be played in the cabin.
